We joined SRAM in Boulder, Colorado, for an awesome ride on the new single chainring drivetrains as part of the Open the Road Tour. We rode 40 miles through Four Mile Canyon, along the stunning Switzerland Trail to Gold Hill and the iconic Gold Hill Store. The SRAM disc brakes were a huge help on the rough and loose Lick Skillet descent and through Lefthand Canyon, then we made it up over Old Stage and back to the Sanitas Brewery for tacos, beers and an informal focus group to see how the gear performed.
Special thanks goes to Skratch Labs and Real Athlete Diets for the nutrition along the way and to pro racers Nicole Duke and Kristin Weber for leading the way.
Stay tuned to see if the SRAM Open the Road Tour will be coming to a city near you.
