PRESS RELEASE: Fox Racing

MAY 7, 2018 – We are announcing our support and participation in the first annual “International Ride Mountain Bike Day”. Otherwise known as #Ride MTB Day, the movement is composed of decentralized, community-based events that take place around the globe with mountain bike brands, media, professionals, retailers, parks and local riders everywhere, with everyone showing their love and support for the sport of mountain biking by holding group rides, fundraisers, races and demos on JULY 20 – EVERY YEAR.

On this day, riders gather together at local trails, bike parks, and bike shops or even enjoy a solitary ride alone at their favorite spot, all bringing riders all over the world together to make it an official holiday for mountain biking.

“The sport of Mountain Biking has an incredible culture and Ride MTB Day is a great way to celebrate it. Fox is excited to support the inaugural #RIDEMTBDAY to help get more riders on their mountain bikes and have fun. The goal is to have the concept adopted by the ENTIRE industry and raise mountain bike awareness and participation. We look forward to more and more brands and retailers supporting #RIDEMTBDAY year after year.” - Dave Ahumada, Global Marketing Manager, Fox MTB.

 Well, according to UCI, on September 14th (1990) was the first world MOUNTAINBIKE championships, XC and DH... So why no on September 14th?

 Should be on the third Saturday/Sunday of July. When July 20th is midweek, it cuts down the number of participants.

 July 20th makes sense to me. America was born on the Fourth of July and by July 20th, It was confirmed that America was the leader of the free world, and all must follow Americas lead. Since America is home of Rad and Brave it’s a no brainer! Easy. Put it to bed with a bow on it. Thank you world.

 @krypto8: funny thing is, because you're american, it's really hard to know if this is sarcasm or not....

 I'm recovering from a tib/fib compound fracture that happened in Feb. This should be a good motivator to set a deadline to get back on the bike. Let's see if I can do it. July 20, here I come.

 A July 20th MTB day would be another giant leap for mankind :
