FREE Entry Available to a Good Home!

Dead Serious…here is the deal, R. Scott Tedro, President of Sho-Air and team owner of Team Sho-Air Cannondale) purchased an entry that the Kenda Pro MTB Team auctioned off last week.  Tedro paid over $200 for the entry and wants to pass it on to a “deserving” individual – somebody with a really good story as to why they want to race the Park City Point 2 Point.  If you think you fit-the-bill, comment on this BLOG post, or on our Facebook to be considered.  We will keep accepting comments through this weekend, posting a winner next week (12th-ish).

The entry was originally owned by Kenda, a presenting sponsor of the PCP2P, their racer could not attend this year so they decided to auction the entry and give all the proceeds to NICA (the National High School Mountain Biking League).  Tedro won the auction last week paying $205 for it.  His intentions are obvious as always – support Mountain Bike Racing in the US! As some of you may know, R. Scott Tedro is a huge force in the US mountain biking scene, as the owner of a pro team and major racing events like the US Cup and Pro XCT

We all look forward to seeing why you think you are deserving of this entry and how you will help inspire and support MTB racing!

    We’ve picked a winner! Andy Costin will be racing the Park City Point 2 Point this year thanks to R. Scott Tedro of Sho-Air! Andy is a Cancer survivor that wants a chance to race with his two brothers this year. Andy is going to kick the P2P right square in the butt.

    Tedro is throwing in an extra $250 for race and travel expenses and Kenda is providing some new rubber for Andy, he should be super fast!

    Since I was a teenager, I’ve been an avid mountain biker. My brothers and I have always had a friendly competition with each other with every race we’ve done. However, a few years ago I was diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, and spent the next 2 1/2 years doing chemo. Throughout my treatment, I continued biking as much as possible, and even participated in the 24 Hours of Moab, the 12 Hours of Sundance, and a few other races, but my brothers definitely beat me in those competitions, and I never felt like I got back to my base level. Having that behind me now, I’m ready to get back into the competitive spirit. My brothers are both signed up for this race (they didn’t tell me about it because they thought I couldn’t do it), and I would love the opportunity to ride with them and prove that I can still hold my own in our friendly competition! I feel that I can inspire others by showing them that I didn’t let cancer beat me, and that I can still be just as good (or better) than I was before. I’ve supported various races over the last 15 years, and would love to add this one to my list.

    Why would I want to win the entry slot, well for starters, I’ll bring my racing legs, I wont be leaving them in Miami, FL! :)

    Have heard from many friends that this is an amazing event that unfortunately sells out in less than 5 minutes every year, that’s incredible and a true testament to how great the event must be.

    It would be awesome to win the entry that way I can take a trip with my girlfriend this year out west. She has been bugging me about not taking her anywhere fun to ride this year. Last year we where very fortunate to be able to travel to all the SERC and GSC races, along with Leadville, even got to spend over a month in Colorado of riding. This year I’ve been trying to grow my business, so the racing has taken a huge step back, as a matter fact I haven’t even renewed my USAC PRO XC license because I have no real intentions of racing this year. Just a couple weeks ago, I did my first race of the year, albeit a charity mtb race, but it got the competitive juices flowing again. Unfortunately I had a mechanical on the bike, front derailleur went lose and lowered and got caught in the chainring. I feel like I need to redeem myself, and nothing will be more sweeter than getting to tell my local buddies how an awesome time I had at the Park City Point 2 Point race!

    P.S. Being it that its a P2P race, my girlfriend wont have to do my feeds, so she wont feel like the trip is more for me than her, cause of course the trip will be so that she we can ride our mtbs and road bikes through beautiful Park City :)
