Delta 7 Sports’ Arantix Mountain Bike Carries Two Riders to Top-Five Wins at 2009 Sea Otter Classic
I love reading stuff like this. Third place in the DS on a borrowed XC bike!
PAYSON, Utah – April 21, 2009 – Geoffrey Montague and Chantel Shoemaker rode the Arantix, Delta 7 Sports’ mountain bike which uses the company’s IsoTruss technology, to top-five victories in their respective 2009 Sea Otter Classic races. Montague, a Delta 7 Sports rider and employee, won the 19-mile (30.5 km) Cat 2 SRAM Cross Country race on Saturday, April 18 by three minutes. Shoemaker took third in the Cat 1 SRAM Dual Slalom competition on Friday, April 17.
Saturday’s cross country event was Montague’s first national race. He still beat last year’s winning time by eight minutes with the help of the light-yet strong Arantix.
Shoemaker succeeded racing the Arantix though it was her first time riding the bike. Delta 7 Sports lent Shoemaker a bicycle to race with after hers was stolen. Though the Arantix is built for cross country terrain, Shoemaker said its strength and durability made it handle slalom course better than her original bicycle would have.
