Sun Valley, ID, Aug 9th 2012- SCOTT has partnered with Park City Point 2 Point, the premier cycling endurance event of the West. The event takes place in Utah’s Wasatch Mountains over the Labor Day weekend and features “thigh-busting” climbs and continuous Singletrack. Limited to 350 contestants, the event sold out in 3 minutes, 17 seconds this year; the race started before registration it seems.
Known as the most challenging point-to-point races in the country, the PCP2P travels nearly 80 miles and climbs roughly 14,000 feet, 90% on Singletrack. Race organizer, Jay Burke said, “Partnering with SCOTT was an easy decision, their bikes, like the Spark 29, show a commitment to endurance riding and racing. That’s what we were looking for in an event partner. They’re just a perfect fit.” Burke added, “SCOTT is also making a push in our community by teaming up with local Jan’s Mountain Outfitters. We wanted to work with a brand that’s building a strong presence here in Park City, a brand that’s going to be around a while.”
“I’m constantly amazed at how many endurance racers choose SCOTT to compete on,” said Adrian Montgomery. “This platform of racing plays on our product strengths, being lightest in category and racer driven. I see an opportunity to extend our reach amongst endurance cycling disciplines by partnering with PCP2P, further exposing our products to this market and reassuring those who already choose SCOTT Spark and Scale that we are part of their tribe.”
The Park City Point 2 Point is a grueling endurance mountain bike race is held annually in Park City, UT over Labor Day weekend and covers just shy of 80 of the area’s 400+ miles of trails. As part of the National Ultra Endurance Series, the PCP2P logs big miles and substantial climbing to create a punishing course that challenges the limits of every rider. Online registration opens every year on February 15th at 7PM and is quick to sell out. For more information on the PCP2P, visit www.thepcpp.com.
