We are very thankful for Pro Gold’s support of the 2014 SRAM Gold Rusch Tour. Backing from our sponsors ensures that we are able to do the best, organized, and most fun outreach to a variety of women- and Sea Otter was a huge success!
We will be working on a followup newsletter that will go out to the ladies who joined the Tour No-Drop Ride and/or Ladies Lounge in two weeks. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to add text and/or a promotion to the newsletter. Please email me information you’d like included. We will of course link to your website and can share any promotions you have going on. This is a great opportunity to get direct contact with the women who learned about your product at our stop.
Our on-site photographer got some great pictures of the events at Sea Otter. You can view photos specific to your company though this link:

If you would like other pictures for social media, please just email me what you’d like and I’ll see if we have one that will fit your request. If you’d like to purchase the pictures for advertisements, please let me know and I will get you in contact with the photographer.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Again, thank you for all of your support of these amazing events.
During my time racing mountain bikes I’ve always held keeping my equipment working smoothly high up on the list. To that end I’ve always been big on cleaning and lubing my drivetrain and shifty bits in preparation for training and riding. The process of getting my bicycle tuned up, shifting smoothly, and quietly is one I’ve always found meditative and enjoyed.
I’ve always been loyal to what works, and to that end I changed my chain lube to Pro Gold after I received a sample at a race some years back. I’ve used Pro Gold to stop squeaky drive trains and preform regular maintenance. The stuff just works.
I’ve used Prolink chain lube rehab chains that have been through hellish conditions. Some of my racing and training occurs in less than ideal weather. Once I’m done putting in my miles I know I can get my bike clean with the Pro Gold wash and wax and the chain clean with chain shine/ degreaser. After the bike is clean I re apply a little lube and grease where needed and I’m ready for the next ride.
Making regular bike maintenance as much a part of the hobby as riding has helped keep it fun (I keep a stereo and stock of cold beverages in my shop to make working on my two-wheeled friends an easy process). I know the ProGold brand of products works, and I continue to count on them because they make maintenance easier and more worry-free, so I can spend more time on the trail and less time in the stand.
