Cyclocross Champ to Debut at Sea Otter
Irvine, CA (March 18, 2011) – Felt Bicycles is pleased to announce that it will sponsor cyclocross and mountain bike star Ryan Trebon for the 2011 season. Felt will supply the four-time American National champion for both his cyclocross and mountain bike campaigns beginning with Sea Otter next month
“I am thrilled to be with Felt this year, and can’t wait for the race season to begin,” said Trebon. “Felt was the perfect choice for me because of its technological approach to bike design and racing pedigree. I am already working with Felt’s engineers to fine tune my bikes for 2011, and we are all excited about the results.”
Trebon is a multi-disciplined national champion, winning the U.S. title in cyclocross (2006 and 2008), cross country (2006) and short track (2007). He has dominated the US Gran Prix of Cyclocross Series, winning the overall title four times, and will seek his fifth title in 2011.
“Ryan is a great fit for our company and our cyclocross and mountain bike racing efforts,” said Doug Martin, Director of Marketing for Felt Bicycles. “Ryan is one of the most recognizable figure in American fat tire racing and a legend in the sport. We are ecstatic to have him as one of our athletes.”
For 2011, Trebon’s schedule will again feature both cyclocross and mountain bike events. For cyclocross events, Trebon will race aboard Felt’s all-new carbon cyclocross bike which will be unveiled at the Sea Otter Classic in April. For mountain bike events, Trebon will compete on Felt’s industry leading Nine mountain bikes.
Trebon joins Felt’s family of fat tire athletes that already features Felt Oetztal X-Bionic, Team Kenda/Felt, and Mafia Racing.
