Vote On The American TransAlp Mountain Bike Team!


This was a little late in getting passed my way, and the voting is only open until June 1st, but a good friend of mine has a cousin and his wife (did you follow all that?) who are hoping to go Europe this Summer to represent the U.S. in the UXC TransAlps mountain bike race. In order to do so, they need to be voted as the team to go, and to do that you need to go to the Race Face website and create a login name and password to cast your vote. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you address that will than allow you to login and watch the videos. The site claims that you have to watch all the videos, but actually all you have to do is actually start the video, and then you’re free to vote. The team that you want to vote for is Team Shannifer. All in all, it’s a bout a five minute process tops, and most of that is spent waiting for the confirmation e-mail. Both my friend and I would appreciate the votes.

The TransAlps mountain bike race is a complete traverse of the Alps. It starts in Northern Germany and continues for 385 miles into Southern Italy. The race is devided into eight stages that cross Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy, along the way teams will encounter more than 65,000 ft. of vertical gain. This is the first I’ve ever heard of this race, but it sounds like quite a ride.

Again, thanks for taking the time to cast a vote. I hope they make it! 🙂
