The Enchilada Enduro Charity Auction

Grassroots Cycles is holding an online auction for one entry into the first ever & highly coveted "Enchilada Enduro" race in Moab.  This race sold out earlier this spring in a matter of minutes catching many riders off guard who were planning to attend.  All of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Adam Lavender family.  Adam is a good friend & Grassroots Cycles teammate who suffered a life changing accident while training earlier this spring that left him in a wheelchair.  

This spot in the race came open from another Grassroots rider Eric Landis not being able to participate due to recovering from a mid season accident of his own.  

When asked about it Landis said: 
"I knew I could just return my spot & get my money back.  But every time I thought about it my mind drifted to Adam.  This race is special & I know there are many riders or teams that want in at any cost.  In the spirit of competition for a good cause I wanted to put my spot up for auction & see what comes of it."
Eric W/Adam & Family:)
This of course had to have the race directors blessing.  As soon as Keith Darner, of the Big Mountain Enduro Series & the Mountain States Cup, heard about this he did not hesitate to get on board.  
During a phone call with Keith: "Yea we could use the extra spot to give to our long wait list but this is for a good cause for a fallen brother!  No Problem!"

The auction is on Ebay & will end at 12:00 Noon Mountain Time Wednesday September 26th Here:
