    Epic 29er in La Ruta

    Ben Bostrom won the masters division in La Ruta and used an Epic 29er on the last 2 days - he finished 5th overall. For a guy that is relatively new to bike racing this guy totally rocked it at what is arguably the hardest race on the planet!

    Check out the post race interviews where he talks about the Epic. Long videos but pretty cool.

    I can't believe he is old enough to race the masters division. Man I am getting old!

    It's cool to see former motorcycle stars racing mountain bikes. Johnny O comes to mind. I can't think of his name, but a former super fast enduro racer from the East coast races at a high level also.

    Sweet! Thanks for posting!

    Damn, Bostrom's fast! Nice rides. Seems like a super nice guy too! Genuinely happy to help out his team mate and totally enjoying himself.
