Orinda-  Ca.

Grinduro: Where mountain biking and road racing mix to become  a whole lot more. 

Imagine a steep bike road climb up to as high as 10,000ft above sea level. Now imagine riding on gravel  the whole way, slipping and sliding. Oh yeah and your racing!

Well Gamespeed’s resident biking professional and certified crazy man Alex Tellez uses these races as tune up for the 2016 Olympic Indoor cycling competition. Alex will represent the Phillipines. With the scarce availability of indoor riding tracks you gotta do something to prepare.

In his first race of this type ever he won the Santa Cruz Grinduro. Never a guy to shy away from s challenge or punishment I guess this was tailor made for the Orinda resident.

Congrats Alex, “I think”.
