The 2018 season is here and the folks at Pivot are gearing up for another great year of riding, racing, and building great bikes.
Likewise, the Stans-Pivot Pro Team p/b Maxxis will continue to tear up the cross-country circuit. Chloe Woodruff & Keegan Swenson started out the season at the Andalucía UCI 6-day stage race, with a full World Cup season ahead of them.
Rose Grant, a four-time US marathon National Champ is looking to add “five-time national champ” to her resume. Sofia Gomez-Villabate, who is coming off of a breakout cyclo-cross season is also looking to make a name for herself in the XC side of things. Both Rose and Sofia will focus on Pro XCT and the Epic Rides Off-Road Series for 2018.
The always incredible Aaron Chase will continue to travel to unreal places and do absolutely unreal things aboard his bike—look for more of his amazing edits this year. Antoine Caron’s focus is on enduro racing and, a man of many talents, filmmaking. Antoine will be stepping into the world of EWS this season. Brice Shirbach will also be roving the world, in search of the next great story and video—you can expect to see plenty of Brice’s work in the media.
Pivot ultra-endurance racers, Taylor Lideen and Kaitlyn Boyle both just won and set new course records at the 2018 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, with Taylor notching 20 laps and almost 340 miles in the Solo Male category and Kaitlyn racking up 18 laps and about 300 miles in the Female Solo category. You will definitely be seeing more of these names throughout 2018.
Pivot’s headquarters in Tempe, Arizona, was recently home to a gathering of Pivot racers, riders and ambassadors who joined Pivot’s staff to collaborate, give back to the community and, no surprise, ride some great trails. It’s all here in the video (courtesy of Antoine Caron’s handiwork).
And without letting too many cats out of the bag, 2018 is going to be a big year for some truly great and awesomely disruptive new Pivot models.
Be sure to keep up with their Facebook and Instagram pages to see all the newest bikes and the latest results, photos, blog posts and edits featuring Pivot athletes from all walks of life, across the world. These folks are special, Pivot doesn’t choose just anyone.
