Up Close With The Pro’s: Diamondback and Optum Pro Cycling
March 3, 2014 19 Comments
If you haven’t heard yet, one of America’s top pro teams has recently made the switch to Diamondback bikes for this upcoming season. The Optum Pro Cycling Presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies men’s and women’s team will be riding Diamondback’s amazing, and much lauded, Podium series bikes during the 2014 season. You’ll be able to spot these bikes everywhere from the Tour of California to the U.S. Pro Challenge.
To get a more in-depth look at what’s going on with the team, Diamondback took a trip to their training camp in Oxnard California.
While there, they caught up with U.S. Women’s National Champion Jade Wilcoxson and got to ask her a few questions.
They also took an opportunity to visit with the team mechanics and get the scoop on the new Diamondback bikes.
And, of course, they got up close and personal with the delightful Mike “Meatball” Friedman. Apparently, he doesn’t like the nickname “Meatball” though.
So it’s time for a contest: Suggest a new nickname for Mike, and we’ll select the best one to receive a $50 gift card – just post your suggestion in a comment below by the end of the day on Friday 3/7/14.
