The Outspoken Cyclist – 06/16/2012

Next week, Diane will be reporting from Press Camp in Park City, Utah. Diane has been talking incessantly about this event, so this week we catch up with Press Camp organizer Chris Zigmont so the rest of us can find out what it’s all about.

After some news and a mini-rant from yours truly, we get down to business with master mechanic Merlyn Townley. Merlyn has been a neutral support and team race mechanic for over 2o years. He also builds some of the most beautiful and durable custom wheels you’ll ever ride. Check out his shop online at Merlyn Mechanics.

Finally, follow our favorite RAAM racers, Cassie Schumacher/Wheels 4 Change, and Andre Husain/Team Hope at RaceAcrossAmerica.org.
