Who we are

Northern Colorado Grassroots (NCGR) is a team of mountain bikers based out of Fort Collins, Colorado who like to have a good time and love riding bikes. We like to race our bikes, be good stewards of the trails, give back to the community, and be all around good advocates for the sport of mountain biking.

Back Into the Swing of Things

It's already the end of May and Memorial weekend is upon us.  The racing season has come back around!

The New Belgium Short Track series has gone through 3 of the 4 races for the season and NCGR had a good showing with Brian and Ralph, even though Ralph looked like he came out of a coal mine at the end of the race (thanks Mike Woodard for capturing that one!).  Brian roped in 3rd place in the Single Speed division at the third Short Track race!  Ralph fought a hard battle to ride into 11th in the Mens Expert division

Is that Ralph or his Klingon brother?
In addition to the Short Track races the Gowdy Grinder went down on May 20th.  Brian once again represented us on the short, but technically challenging, course.  Brian finished up in 16th place out of 55 in the Men's Open category where he raced his single speed against the geared boys.  Great job Brian!  Brian was even quoted in a post-race interview with Josh Cooley of Examiner.com.  You can find the article here.
This is just the beginning to the season and as things get into full swing we'll keep putting up the results!

Ride on!
