Salsa is pleased to announce that we are sponsoring Danielle Musto for the 2010 season. Danielle is a pro mountain biker from Grand Rapids, Michigan who specializes in endurance events.
Danielle will be racing on the Dos Niner and Mamasita this season at events across the country...and possibly around the world.
She'll be sharing some of her stories of training, racing, and just plain ol' living here on the Salsa Amigos blog.
She also has her own blog that you might enjoy checking out: Danielle Musto: Endurance Athlete & Coffee Enthusiast
With that...here is a little bit of info about Danielle.
Why bikes? I'm happiest when I'm on a bike. I love being able to ride my bike to places that most people don't see.
What do you most enjoy about ultra-endurance events? The challenges and the camaraderie.
Got a message for folks that haven?t yet tried an ultra-endurance event? Yes, go out and try one! They can be really intimidating at first, but there are plenty of resources out there to help you train for one. Crossing the finish line after an endurance race is the best feeling!
Goals for 2010? Podium finishes at all races, win the 24 Hour National Championships at Big Bear in June, and have a lot of fun!
About yourself? I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my husband Scott and greyhound Naomi. Scott took me for my first bike ride 6 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. I love racing and riding my bike. Last year I started leading group rides and clinics and will continue to do so in 2010. There is nothing better then seeing how excited people get when riding trail for the first time!
Welcome aboard Danielle. We're excited to have you riding Salsa this season and wish you the best of success in 2010.
