Overland Journal fields its mountain bike team at the 24 Hours of Old Pueblo race

As part of the Overland Journal subscriber survey, we ask about our readers other interests beyond overland adventure travel, and not surprisingly, 74% of our readers are also MTB enthusiasts. Â This fits well with our own passion for mountain biking and adventure cycling, and the idea of an Overland Journal sponsored team was born.
Our 5-person team:
The 24 Hours of Pueblo is an endurance event coordinated by Epic Rides, and the nature of the event requires everyone to have some type of camping set-up, which ranged from huge RVs to ground tents. Â We were happy with the number of attendees that were either subscribers or had heard of Overland Journal. Tim Huber, a Charter Subscriber said hello. Â He was riding for Team Molasses, because, if you are slower than their team, you are. . .
Christophe rode the event solo, and managed six laps.

Even an E-Camper was in attendance. These are cool little trucks
A few nice BMWs
Overall, the team did great, and finished in 18th place for the 5-person mixed category. Â Great Job!
