Log on, take your best guess, and celebrate the 24 Hours of Moab!
Moab, UT (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
Monique "Pua" Sawicki is a six time National Champion, the country's top-ranked mountain biking endurance racer and with her recent finish at the World Endurance Championships in Austria, she's ranked among the best in the world. October 10th and 11th at the "24 Hours of Moab" National Championship race, officials from the Guinness Book of World Records will be on site to witness just how far the sports' most dominating female can peddle.
"We petitioned Guinness to recognize the US Nationals for the most miles ridden in 24 hours during a mountain bike race. This will be the first time for Guinness to recognize this discipline." said the petite Mililani native who started out as a cross-country runner on scholarship at Chaminade University in Honolulu before switching to cycling.
Her husband and trainer Ron added, "Pua has the record but it has not been recognized by Guinness till now. Pua has ridden 281.2 miles in 2004 at her first National championship 24 hour race."
Pua's recent accomplishments at the World's in Austria have not only generated global attention, but Pua's Partners - those businesses that fuel her racing - have all collaborated on this historic event to bring attention to the sport and her amazing endurance records. So they're letting all endurance and cross-country bike fans get in on the action via "Pontificate Pua's Pedaling" contest, the brainchild of Ron.
"The support has been incredible from all of Pua's Partners." said Ron. "The contest is simple. Go to our new website at http://www.TeamMata.com and enter how many laps you think she'll complete in the 24 hours, and enter your guess - to the tenth of a mile - of how far you think she'll actually go!"
The winner of the contest will win a prize package valued at more than $4,000 including following:
- Niterider: Two sets of lights
- Magura: One set of brakes
- Ergon: Back pack & grips
- Hutchinson: One set of Cobra tires
- DT Swiss Prize Package
- Ellsworth Handcrafted Bikes: Enlightenment Frame
- Shimano: One Pair of XTR pedals
- Okole Stuff: Six Jars of Stuff
- Max Muscle Sports Nutrition: Pua's Endurance Nutrition Stack
- Nomad: Portable pressure washer
"As an independent rider, we have the ability to select the best gear and partners to make all this happen. Each of our partners feels the same way…they select the people to best represent their brand out there. This contest is a great way to bring this incredible team together for the benefit and recognition of the entire sport." said Pua. "Log on, take your best guess, and celebrate the 24 Hours of Moab!"
"Hutchinson is pumped that Pua will be attempting the Guiness Book of World Records for Mountain Bike miles at the 24 Hours of Moab." according to Steve Boehmke of Hutchinson Tires. "This race is classic, she is the consumate champion, and I'll be there to make sure her Hutchinson Cobra Tubeless Ready tires are pumped up at the starting line, and shredding across the finish line 24 Hours later."
Pontificate Pua's Pedaling contest, her new website, and exclusive representation of 'The Pua Brand' is now being handled through one of the nation's foremost Interactive Marketing and Representation Agencies, Carr Knowledge, Inc. in Seattle, Washington.
