Win a Yeti SB6c, EVOC bags, and more while supporting Back Country Life Line

2016_Yeti_SB6c_Profile_Green.jpg.1280x720_q65_crop

Hopefully you’ll never need their services, but if you’re injured out on the trail you’ll be better off with a BCLL trained rider at your side. Back Country Life Line has been working recently to educate and train riders in techniques like CPR and first aid so they’re ready if things go south. Part of BCLL is the 139 Fund – a 501(c)(3) non-profit in memory of enduro racer Will Olsen, who sadly passed away last year during a race in Colorado.

Part of their operation as a non-profit means they need funds to continue to operate and make us all a little safer out on the trails. To help raise funds, BCLL has partnered with Yeti, EVOC, Maxxis, Fox, ENVE, and Enduro MTB Training to offer a range of prizes of their upcoming raffle (Yeti, Maxxis, Specialized, Smith, and Shimano have also been instrumental in supporting the program since the beginning). You can enter to win the prizes including a complete Yeti SB6c, by donating to BCLL. The more you donate, the more chances you have to win. The contest runs until July 30th, where the winner will be announced at the rider party for the upcoming Aspen Snowmass BME race. You do not need to be present to win.

Details after the break…

Tantrum Cycles to crowdsource 2017 graphics with Design Challenge

Tantrum

Think you have some design chops? Always wanted your own spin on a finished bike? This may be your opportunity to do just that. Just announced by Tantrum Cycles’ owner Brian Berthold, the brand is looking for a complete redesign for their 2017 bikes with the exception of the head badge (though it can be tweaked apparently). Depending on the production value of the finished design, the winner of the challenge has the potential to win a free frame as the grand prize.

While Tantrum Cycles might be a bit of an unknown at the moment, based on Berthold’s past work (Kona Magic Link, Brake Therapy Components, as well as years of motorsports suspension experience), we’re guessing that might change very soon. Key to the Tantrum design is Berthold’s own Missing Link suspension design which promises to be a design revolution.

We hope to get a ride on the bike soon, but for now check out the Design Challenge’s official rules from Tantrum after the break…

  • Alex’s Million Mile returns in September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month – Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer, challenges supporters everywhere to go the distance in September for Alex’s Million Mile 2016. Returning for its 4th year during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, participants will collectively run, walk and/or ride a million miles to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. The world-wide, virtual event invites individuals and teams to pledge their activity from Sept 1-30. The ambitious goal of one million miles is inspired by Jay’s daughter and Foundation creator Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who set out to raise $1 million through lemonade stands in 2004. The initiative provides a fun, easy and free way for people across the country to make a difference in the fight against childhood cancer. Last year, more than 15,000 participants logged over 963,000mi in 24 different countries and on 6 different continents. Miles can be logged manually or by using MapMyFitness or Fitbit apps during the month. The event is free to participants, but fundraising is encouraged. AlexsLemonade.org
