SRAM Athletes Go Big at Colorado Freeride Festival

Slopestyle phenom Brandon Semenuk continued his winning streak this past Saturday at the Colorado Freeride Festival slopestyle finals, part of the Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour. With a combination of giant air and a creative refined style, Semenuk secured the win on his first run, an increasing habitual routine for the 21 year old slopestyle all-star. Second and third place went to Martin Söderström and Brett Rheeder who have consistently earned their place on the podium and are no doubt within reach of Semenuk. Söderström currently leads the FMB World Tour overall. All three riders will continue the FMB World Tour next weekend at the Bearclaw Invitational in Mount Washington, Canada.

The Colorado Freeride Festival also hosted the Specialized Enduro race consisting of five stages over three days. Racers experienced a unique format beginning with a chainless challenge as stage 1. SRAM, RockShox, Avid and Truvativ athlete Curtis Keene was the man to beat coming off of the first stage with a six second lead. Keene quickly acclimated to the elevation, skillfully handling the demanding courses over the following two days retaining his lead through the final stage. Second and third place went to SRAM athletes Ross Schnell and Nate Hills.
