Iron Horse Bicycle Company announces today that they will be the official frame supplier of the Maxxis Tires
Gravity Team for the 2008 race season. Maxxis team riders will use the dw-link equipped Iron Horse
Sunday for downhill events and MkIII model frames for mountain cross races.

The Iron Horse Sunday is one of the most sought-after mountain bikes in the world. With a pedigree that
includes victories in World Championship, World Cup Series Overall, World Cup, National Championship,
and US Open competitions, the Sunday has become the bike-of-choice for the sportʼs best athletes and
discerning riders.

The 2008 Maxxis Team gravity roster is stacked with talent. Joining Maxxis for the 2008 campaign is
defending back-to-back World Champion and 2007 World Cup Series Champion Sabrina Jonnier. Luke
Strobel, the top American on the World Cup circuit, and 2006 Junior World Champion Cameron Cole both
continue with the program for 2008. Team Maxxis will compete the UCI World Cup circuit, the NMBS series
events, and other selected top-tier events throughout the world.

Maxxis and Iron Horse have a long history of working together. Maxxis has been a tire sponsor of Iron
Horse teams and riders and Iron Horse has used Maxxis tires as original equipment specification for the
past 10 years.

Maxxis Tires Bicycle Manager Christopher Warrick comments:

“Weʼre excited to have Iron Horse supporting the gravity side of the team this year. Itʼs obvious their bikes
are fast, as theyʼve delivered back-to-back world championships for both men and women. A great bike,
like the Iron Horse Sunday, will make a great rider even better.” Christopher went on to say, “I canʼt wait to
get the season started. Weʼve put together a great team of riders and sponsors and feel as though the
quality of the teamʼs equipment will work to our advantage.”

Iron Horse Marketing Manager Todd Seplavy commented:

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Team Maxxis for the upcoming season as their official frame
sponsor. Iron Horse and Maxxis have had a strong relationship for the past decade. This is an extension of
our partnership and an opportunity to expand the Iron Horse brand out to even more people and more
events.”

Sean Heimdal of the World Championship Monster Energy/Iron Horse team added:
“Maxxis has a great reputation for putting together excellent race programs and supporting the best riders in
the sport. We are looking forward to working with the Maxxis team in our shared goal of winning races and
championships.”
