From Troy Rarick, the founder of the “fest” and owner of Over the Edge Sports

Fruita Fat Tire 2009 is merely a few weeks away and the “ONE FOUR FUN” is coming together as a great “one for you”. We have 2 new bands booked and some new surprises, new VIP party location, Saturday after Party and even some new Trails to unveil. Playing our Saturday night party this year will be the “Crashers” out of Las Vegas. Thanks to Doug at Wright hospitality we were able to steal these guys away from Harrah’s for the weekend. Friday we have a new local band; the Pineapple Crackers and their fun reggae influenced style. The sun is shining and the trails are in great shape and narrowed up from the long winter. It’s Singletrack season and we can’t wait to see you at the 14th Fruita Fat Tire fest – April 23-26th and 18 Hrs of Fruita-May 1-2, 2009!

FROM Shamono!! Shimano is proud to be a supporting sponsor of the New Belgium Fruita Fat Tire Festival.  The Festival brings in a great mix of riders who enjoy exploring the best Colorado has to offer.  The relaxed atmosphere in Fruita and the surrounding hills allows Shimano to develop good relationships with our consumers and learn more about the components of their dreams.  Spend a few minutes at Shimano’s booth to brag about your morning ride and learn more about the world’s leader in component innovation.  And don’t be afraid to ask our on-site mechanics for some free technical support before hitting the trails.  Safe riding!
