PRESS RELEASE: Rocky Mountain Bicycles

The Rocky Mountain Race Face team first came together back in 2018 and has left its mark on enduro racing over the past four years. Our long relationship with Race Face dates back to 1993, when our two brands were under one roof designing product to meet the needs of aggressive riders. Fast forward nearly 30 years and while our two brands have grown and separated, the historical bond is as strong as ever.

At the heart of the Rocky Mountain Race Face team are our riders; Jesse Melamed, Andréane Lanthier Nadeau, and Rémi Gauvin. These talented Canadians have all been on the program since its inception and have risen to the top while taking on the best in the world. The riders’ ability to perform on and off the track has made for an unforgettable period in racing.

The mutual dedication between our brands and athletes has built a powerful and memorable enduro program. This team has been an exciting chapter in the long history between Rocky Mountain and Race Face, and we’re stoked to be back for another year.

Random thought - You should do a series where you 3 ride and rate Jesse’s dad’s trails. Wink

 @JesseMelamed: Jesse hey brother! My 10yo son rides the Rocky Reaper with 26" wheels... it is like a mini Altitude for the groms. He is just in fourth grade and already an intimidating rider, not least of all because he rides a real bike. We are so stoked on Rocky and the bikes they make for kids; I hope you guys keep up your support for junior riders also! I also listened to some podcasts you were on and learned a lot about bike setup in those discussions (thank you). Good luck this year mate!

 @MT36: I was supported as a junior so I know Rocky is always looking to continue that support. Glad to hear he is ripping it up on a Reaper!
Thanks!

 Got a chance to chat with Jesse a few years back when he came to Phoenix. Solid dude and was awesome to see him shredding some of our local trails at South Mountain! Love following this team on the circuit, good luck to Jesse, Remi, and ALN this season!

 ALN, your last photo there is a very rare example of a picture that illustrates the steepness of a trail. A little out of my league, but appreciate the skills none the less. Looking forward the Jank Files i due course. All the best guys for '22

 You can thank Margus for rendering the steepness through a pic. Do you know which movie this particular bit of trail is in? One of my favorites.
