NiteRider Athletes Capture Three Wins at 24-Hour Mountain Bike National Championships


October 4, 2011 (Colorado Springs, CO) – Cyclists representing NiteRider Technical Lighting System swept up the top positions at the 24 Hour National Championships in Colorado Springs this past weekend.

Josh Tostado took home gold in the Men’s Solo Category, while Pua Mata captured first place in Women’s Solo and Danielle Musto in Women’s Singlespeed.  Both Tostado and Mata lapped the field.

The thirteen-mile technical course never allowed the competitors to settle into a rhythm given several up and downhill sections that forced riders off their bikes.  “This was a difficult course, but I felt great right off the start.  My night laps were my best and was at a big advantage due to the light combination I ran.  The new NiteRider systems are shockingly bright and it made a big difference in my lap times,” explained Tostado.

Mata arrived at the race in top form making the win a solid edition to her 2011 Marathon National Championship win.  Musto, focusing her season on Singlespeed racing, set a blistering pace and not only grabbed the class win, but took home third place overall, an impressive feat.  Both women chose NiteRider’s Pro 1500 LED Race models for the bars and the MiNewt.750 Pro for the helmets – the newest lights combining high power with minimal weight.

  • I am thinking the statement that “NiteRider cyclists swept the top positions at the 24hr Nationals is a bit presumptuous. To be exact they captured two categories. Not a complete “sweep” of all categories. What about Baja Designs ride Evans Plews taking the extremely tough – some would say tougher than geared solo – “Men’s Single Speed Solo” Category? How about the AZ Devo Youth Team riding with Baja Designs lights being within striking distance of taking the overall team win let alone crushing their opponents in the Youth class? Swept? Don’t think so NR. See you in Moab…
