BetterRider Wins Pan American Championships in Colombia!

Jackie Harmony on her way to the Pan American Championship!

Congratulations to BetterRide coach and athlete Jackie Harmony on her Pan American title! Making this more impressive, she was on a new bike and suspension (Canfield Jedi and Marzocchi 888 fork) that was assembled just in time to make her flight! So she had to get used to and dial in a new bike and fork in practice, not a lot of time.

BetterRider Mitch Ropelato finished just off the podium in 4th for the highest placing US male in the downhill competition.

Other BetterRiders including Jackie’s husband Dante finished in 63rd place, Michael Buell was 30th and Heiki Hall was 44th.

Feels great to see students I coach doing well all over the world. Keep up the good work!
