Today, it’s my privilege to introduce our 2016 Warbird line, featuring Class 5 VRS™!
As you may or may not remember, the first time we publicly talked about our tandem project was way back in October of 2010. Since then our tandem prototypes have seen thousands of miles from the Dirty Kanza 200 to local singletrack trails. Salsa sponsored rider Kurt Refsnider even took his Powderkeg tandem across America in the Tour Divide Race. Impressive!
I was shivering at the predawn start line of JayP’s Backyard Fat Pursuit on January 10th - not from cold, since it was already 20 degrees, but from eagerness to stop anticipating the event and start racing it. I had been looking forward to this moment since I DNF’ed in the first edition of the race, in March 2014
