We work 9 to 5, but we live 529

2016 has been a great year. We are seeing our team growth over the past years pay off. We have participated in more races than ever and gotten more medals than ever. And we have ridden in more places than ever before. We competed in all the local series and also had racers in BCBR, Leadville, and the ABSA Cape Epic race. We have explored new areas like MOAB and spent three team weekends in Whistler. 

Our team is stabilizing around 40 active riders across everything from highly competitive riders to people who ride a lot but compete less and across all disciplines from DH and Enduro, to XC, marathon XC, and CX.  And we are still a diverse bunch with both youth riders and of of course our Ladies Legion.

New riders need coaching, trails need digging, and advocate organisations need money. Tina Sarin coached a middle & highschool team, Jackson Tseng, Jacob Cooper, and Audrey Sarin coached kids for Evergreen during the summer, Jun De Ocampo and Craig Martin spent many weekends digging trails, and Evergreen MTB is building 60 miles of new trail, some of that made possible by our donations.

Bike thieves suck!

Joe's got two Bronsons. 

We were having pizza and meanwhile Joes bike was stolen. From his car. In the parking lot. Three large pizzas for the table and the bike was locked to his bikerack with a wimpy lock and his car was parked right next to two other cars with bikes on the back. But those bikes were yellow. Highly recognizable. And his Bronson was black. 

His new Bronson is magenta. 

His old Bronson had a Project 529 shield. 

And that is how he got it back.

The thieves brought the bike into a bikeshop who recognized the shield and figured it probably wasn't all good and managed to keep the bike overnight and called the police. 

All this didn't happen right away. Joe had already gotten a new bike from his insurance. So now he's got two Bronsons and the thieves have none. 

And we all bought more locks. Bigger locks. ABUS locks.
