Denver, CO- June 8, 2010 – When is the last time that you had the chance to ride with the current World Champion DH racer who also happens to hold the record for the most World Cup wins?  Never?  Well now is your chance.  Royal Racing the manufacture of quality mountain bike apparel would like to announce Royal Ride Day on July 2nd 2010 in conjunction with SolVista Bike Park in Granby Colorado

Royal Ride Day is your opportunity to come and hang out and ride downhill with the current UCI DH World Champion Steve Peat.  The current World Champ will be at the mountain riding and hanging out and available to share riding tips and secrets as well as some good stories.  Or you could try your best to hang with them on the many great DH trails at SolVista Bike Park.  

This is an open invitation for riders all over the world to come and ride with two of the greatest riders in the world as well as the staff of the Royal Racing USA office.  On top of being able to ride with these guys anybody that shows up in a 2010 Royal kit will get a day lift pass for $10 instead of the regular $25.  Better yet, riders can buy their new kits at the SolVista bike shop and get a free lift pass for the day of the event.  

Jason Schippers President of Royal’s US office explains:  “This is a really exciting and great opportunity for mountain bikers everywhere.  How often do you get to participate in and hang out with the top stars in other sports like you can on this day?  What better place to do this at than the SolVista Bike Park which is the home of the US National Championships just a few weeks after this event.  Matt Thompson and the crew at SolVista Bike Park do a great job on the trails as racer’s themselves.  I know it is my favorite place to ride DH.”  

Thompson SolVista Bike Park manager comments:  “We are overjoyed to host the Royal Ride Day.  To have the current World Champ riding at the SolVista Bike Park is an honor.  These guys are not just great athletes, they’re good people too.  They’re great ambassadors for our sport.”
