Fuji Bicycles is excited to announce that Lauren Gregg will be racing aboard the new Fuji Auric model for the 2016 and 2017 enduro race seasons. Lauren will be gunning for podiums at big races in the Western states, the California Enduro Series (CES) and North American stops of the Enduro World Series (EWS) in 2016 and racing the full EWS circuit in 2017.

Lauren is coming off of a great 2015 season with a Bronze Medal at the USA Enduro National Championships, 2nd Place overall in the California Enduro Series and a Pro Podium at Sea Otter Classic”, says Fuji Mountain Bike Marketing Manager Brian McKinney. “We are so stoked to have Lauren racing for Fuji in the coming seasons and can’t wait to help her reclaim her CES overall title and get some podiums at EWS events.

I’m excited about this opportunity to ride for Fuji,” says Lauren. “Fuji has been great to work with so far. They are just as stoked about racing as I am and I’m really happy to be a part of their new Enduro program. Fuji is committed to moving forward in the sport so working with their brand is a really good fit for me. The bike is tons of fun and I was very impressed when I first had the opportunity to demo it. The Bike handles well and I’m excited to get it out there on the race course and on top of some podiums.

Lauren will be racing the new Fuji Auric with MLink™ suspension.

Established in 1899, the Fuji brand is one of the oldest surviving bicycle brands in the world. Guided by three core principles - strength, heritage, and craftsmanship - Fuji's steadfast philosophy in utilizing the most advanced technology and incorporating elite athlete input into its high-performance products has enabled the brand to endure while others have faltered.

 I worked for a shop several years ago that sold Fuji and the higher end frames had Easton tubing, very high end components and a price that was way lower than anything else. I think if people get past the stigma of not riding the coolest brand at the time and just buy a good bike they would be happier in the long run. I am guilty of what I was just talking about and I have passed over several really good bikes on name alone.

 Good for her. Good for Fuji. It's nice to see the brands making the lower end, more affordable bikes giving back to the sport. I believe it helps them immensely to gain credibility for their bikes to the novice riders.

 Fuji and Breezer are both part of Advanced Sports International. The Auric this year is essentially a rebranded version of the 2015 Breezer Repack. I'm hoping that the next few years see the Auric really develop into its own, with a carbon model.
