SVEN MARTIN's Benefit Raffle @ Mammoth

As I’m sure most of you are well aware by now,…

…a great friend to the mountain bike community, SVEN MARTIN, was broke his neck while riding in Whistler just before the Crankworx MTB festival. Luckily, Sven was not paralyzed, but he will be out of commission for at least 3 months+. Because of the unfortunate circumstances & not being able to work, his medical bills (let alone personal bills) are stacking up!!

Thanks to a few of Sven’s close friends, led by Pro Downhill star April Lawyer, the mountain bike community is planning on holding a RAFFLE during the US National Championships in Mammoth, Calif. Time is tentatively scheduled for after the PRO MtnCross race on Saturday, Sept 17. Stay tuned for any possible updates/changes & we’ll also have the announcers let everyone know at the race what the latest word will be.

Anyone who attended “Sven’s Benefit Raffle” at the NORBA Finals in Mt Snow, knows that a ton of prizes were given out & we were able to make a nice chunk of change for Sven.

So come on out & donate whatever you can to help out our friend! There’s sure to be tons of awesome products won! I personally will be donating a stack of UTOPIA Optics product & a FREE Custom Painted Helmet by DYLAN DEAN DESIGNS!
