Moots Cycles, the titanium frame manufacturer based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is sponsoring the 3rd Annual Dirt, Sweat & Gears 12-hour endurance mountain bike race festival, USA Cycling’s Mountain Bike National Ultra-Endurance Calendar, in Fayetteville, Tennessee May 9.  


Last year’s DSG event drew 300 competitors from 31 states and Canada, including pros Nat Ross, Tinker Juarez, Josh Tostado, Rebecca Rusch and Pua Sawicki. Moots has singed on to sponsor the event in 2009 and 2010.

Also known as the “Mountain Bike Shindig”, Dirt, Sweat & Gears is a weekend of activities for competitors, support crew, family, friends and fans.  Festivities kick off on Friday, May 8 with a bike-lovers film and the not-to-be-missed 20” wheel nighttime time trial on the infield of the DSG racecourse.    

“Moots’ pledge allows us to enhance the overall event for 2009 and 2010,” said Clay Higgins, DSG event promoter. “We’re excited to have a company with a rich cycling heritage onboard. I encourage everyone to come for the race and stay for the weekend!”
