St. Patrick’s Day


Fitzgerald's St. Patrick's Day Party

Can you guess what our favorite holiday is?   That’s right – St. Patrick’s Day!   And we are continuing our tradition of celebrating in serious style.    This year we are partnering with Bill Boney and his team at The Wildwood Room.  So mark you calendars for March 17th at 4:30 pm.


1st Annual Targhee Super D Race Report

People ask me all the time (literally, all the time), “so are you doing much racing this Summer?”  To which I usually answer, “No, I don’t really race… just ride for fun.”  Of course this statement is mostly true.  But those of you who know me well would say this statement is BS when it comes to cross and the occasional downhill race.  But compared to most “racers”, I really don’t race.

So if that’s the case, why was I so worked up over the 1st Annual Targhee Super D race during the Wydaho Rendezvous Mountain Bike Festival?  Maybe it was the fact that I fancy myself a bit of an all arounder on the bike with a leg up on the downhills.  Maybe it’s because I have a downhill race background so this form of DH lite is appealing.  Maybe it’s because my Pivot Mach 429 is the best bike I’ve ever owned and is perfectly suited for this race.  Or maybe it’s because I bet fellow shop owner Aaron Grutzmacher of the Hub Bicycles that I would be his shop mechanic for a day if I lost to him!

Team Spotlight: Wes Hamilton

Fitzgerald’s Bicycles Team Member Wes Hamilton just completed the first half of his season racing lots of crits.  While he took a breather before launching into the rest of his race season, Wes took a few minutes to talk about  hot laps on Victor’s cross course, how he got hooked on the Scott Addict CX and why the joker keeps him going:

SKH:  When did you join the team?

WH:  This is my first year with the team.  I rode a bit with the team last year during the cross season, but this is my first official year.

SKH:  Why did you join Fitzgerald’s Team?

WH:  I got to know the team mainly from their support at the cross races.  It didn’t seem to really matter if you were tearing it up, or brand new to the sport, they gave mad props to everyone.  I made a decision then and there that if the opportunity came up, that was the only team I wanted to ride with.  Everyone, regardless of their level, is supported by this team and that is the vibe that keeps us all going.

Fitzy’s Targhee Super D Pre-Race Scouting Report

New to the Wydaho Rendezvous Mountain Bike Festival this year is the Targhee Super D Race scheduled for Sunday, July 29th. With 12.5 miles and 4700 vertical feet, the Super D Race is certain to be a favorite event for Wydaho for years to come.  Fitzy took to the course one Saturday this summer to scout out all the lines, get the down low on bike and tire selection and have a bit of fun.    Andy at Grand Targhee and Dana Ramos posted up a Google Map with the entire course.

Scott swears he shared all of his impressions and given his best advice, but I guess we will all just have to race the Super D to find out ourselves if he held anything back for himself.  Here’s his pre-race ride report: (more…)
