Team Jamis takes wins in Utah and Tennessee while Rotem Ishay takes the
Silver Medal at the Collegiate National Road Race championships.
Congrats to Utah’s Kelsy Bingham and Georgia’s Thomas Turner as they secured wins in their respective regional professional series events this past weekend. Bingham fought a battle on the famed grounds of the 2002 Winter Olympic cross country course, held at Solider Hollow, in Heber City, Utah. A bumpy and grassy course was modified to include repetitive steep climbs, which to most called for use of a hard tail, but Bingham took the gamble of using her Jamis Dakar XCR – counting on the ability to lay down the power over the 2 hour event…a gamble that paid off as she pulled away on the final climb of the last lap.
On the other side of the country, Thomas Turner, contesting the Duck Town South Eastern Regional Championship event, used his Dakota dXC hard tail to attack the field on the course’s primary obstacle – a steep and grinding ten minute climb. Turner battled a host of Southern professional stars for most of the race, eventually pulling away to a two minute win.
We are also proud to announce Rotem Ishay’s silver medal at the 2011 Collegiate Road National Championships. Rotem is also the 2009 and 2010 collegiate cross country and short track national champion.
Team Jamis is excited to announce a new partnership with the promoters of the BC Bike Race and the Mongolian Bike Challenge. BCBR and MBC have joined us to send Blake Harlan to Mongolia this August for the 9 stage mountain bike event held in…Mongolia! With Sager and Sonntag aiming for BCBR, Harlan will fly the Jamis flag half way around the globe as an athlete ambassador for both BCBR, MBC, and Team Jamis. Good luck to Blake in this truly epic adventure!
Next up for Team Jamis – Adam Snyder and Jason Sager line up for the Transylvania Epic in State College, PA.
