2018 Pivot Cycles Athlete Camp
The 2018 season is here and all of here at Pivot are gearing up for another great year of riding, racing and building some of the best damn bikes to hit the trail…
Pivot Factory Racing is back! Newcomer Eddie Masters came out full throttle snagging his first podium of the season, earning himself the New Zealand National Downhill Championship. Bernard Kerr, Emilie Siegenthaler, and Rupert Chapman are also poised to return to podiums all over the world in 2018.
Likewise, the Stans-Pivot Pro Team p/b Maxxis will continue to tear up the cross-country circuit. Chloe Woodruff & Keegan Swenson are starting out the season at the Andalucia UCI 6-day stage race, with a full World Cup season ahead of them. Rose Grant, our four-time U.S. Marathon National Champ is looking to add “five-time national champ” to her resume. Sofia Gomez-Villafane, who is coming off 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.
