Brandnew Mountain Bike
Brandnew Mountain Bike, a team of former road cyclists.
Their website describes them as “totally honest and the kind of people you see in the headlines, but they also put their expertise in the ‘ground game’ and the local economy,” says Mike Nadeau.
It also mentions that they have taken on “an incredible amount” of “road racing,” and that “we can’t think of any other team that would do this.”
Despite the good press they do have some of the technical obstacles they face, though, and Nadeau says they are just looking forward to sharing the rides with other cyclists.
“Our goal is to show these guys they can run, climb mountains and race in the saddle, and at the same time have a unique perspective on cycling,” he says. “It is like having a great place to spend your days.”
When asked about his own ambitions for Mountain Bikes, Nadeau does not seem to think about his “long-term ambitions” either way. He is convinced he is the first person to use a “stranger bike” as a road race.
