 A Fine Looking Rear End - Winning Bike - Mitch Ropelato's Specialized Demo 8 - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Mitch Ropelato piloted his Specialized Demo 8 to victory at the Mammoth Kamikaze Bike Games ProGRT Downhill race. The occasional golfer, sometimes chef and full time Mountain Biker recently announced the completion of his first and last Enduro season, so we’re hoping to see him aboard this beast along with his Slalom bike much more often, next season.
