Dana Weber Will Represent United States at Marathon World Championships
Pro Bikes/Cytomax rider Dana Weber will be the United States sole representative at this weekend Marathon World Championships in Ornans, France.
The California-based Weber qualified to race Worlds based on his result at the 2011 Grand Raid in Switzerland - an 80-mile race with 15,000 feet of climbing and over 2,000 riders.
The race will be 88 kilometers through the hilly French
countryside featuring the best endurance mountain bike racers from all over
the world including defending champion Christoph Sauser (Swi) and former
champion and 2012 Leadville 100 winner Alban Lakata.
Before flying to France Weber had this to say about his odyssey to reach the mountain bike world stage, "It's been a
long journey to get this opportunity and now that it's here I'm not letting it
pass me by. A big thanks in advance to the lord Jesus Christ, my amazing wife,
my familiy and friends, and sponsors Pro Bike Supply and Cytomax.
I'll keep everyone updated when my trip to Europe starts on the 29th
- thank you!"
Dana and riders from around the world will be racing in Ornans this Sunday, October 7th. MTB Race News will have immediate results from the race and a report from Dana following the race.
