Yeah, that’s right: you get a shot at winning a blazing fast, extra awesome Trek Fuel EX 29 trail bike, and all you have to do is kick some cash toward supporting the next generation of little rippers coming up through National Interscholastic Cycling Association
(NICA). Details below, but the short version is this: Every $5 donated gets you a shot at the bike. Just go here
to donate and enter Pinkbike in the referral-by field of the donation form. Winners will be announced in late April.
After announcing their partnership in July 2015, NICA and Pinkbike are teaming up with Trek Bikes out of Waterloo, Wisconsin to auction off a Trek Fuel EX9 with donated proceeds going back to funding NICA efforts and developing new and existing leagues throughout the U.S. Through each minimum donation of $5 you are entered to win a 2016 Trek Fuel EX9 trail bike. Proceeds go to continuing development of new and existing NICA leagues throughout the U.S.
With NICA quickly expanding to having 19 different leagues across the U.S., their partnership with Pinkbike allows for supported growth and development of the next generation of responsible riders. As stated back in July, Karl Burkat, CEO of Pinkbike, is excited to be a part of the continued growth of the sport. “NICA ensures continued business success for everyone serving the cycling market: today’s young rippers are the future adult enthusiast customers. We’re proud to support NICA with fundraising and promotional efforts as they continue to pursue their mission.”
Austin McInerny who is the Executive Director with NICA stated, “We’d like to offer a huge thank you to Pinkbike and Trek for their support. Having the power of such a large media brand along with Trek behind us will help us continue to share our work in the mountain bike community, and welcome new participants and supporters to NICA.”
Not only is NICA seeing growth from the student-athletes, but from parents and friends as well. 75% of NICA student-athletes report that other family and friends started riding as a result of their participation.About the Fuel EX9 29er
