Dana Weber will be representing the United States at the Marathon Mountain Bike World Championships in Ornans, France on October 7th! The race will be 88 kilometers through the hilly French country side featuring the best endurance mountain bike racers from all over the world including defending champion Christoph Sauser (Swi) and former champion and 2012 Leadville 100 winner Alban Lakata.
Weber qualified to race Worlds based on his result at the 2011 Grand Raid in Switzerland – an 80 mile race with 15,000 feet of climbing and over 2,000 riders.
Weber explained, “It’s been a long journey to get this opportunity and now that it’s here I’m not letting it pass me by. A big thanks in advance to the lord Jesus Christ, my amazing wife, my familiy and friends, and sponsors Pro Bike Supply and Cytomax. I’ll keep everyone updated when my trip to Europe starts on the 29th – thank you!”
