Enduro Bearings Announces Strong List of Sponsored Athletes/Teams for ’22 – Endurance Sportswire

Wide range of on- and off-road athletes features cycling icons like Katerina Nash and Geoff Kabush, plus the LLG-CCB Women’s Pro Cycling Team

Oakland, California (March 09, 2022)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – On the heels of announcing its groundbreaking Mechanics Ambassador Program, Enduro Bearings is proud to announce its 2022 athlete sponsorships, which includes a host of teams and individuals across a variety of cycling disciplines. All athletes will run industry-leading Enduro bearings and components including the patent-pending MAXhit™ bottom brackets and headsets and Torqtite® bottom brackets.

This year’s list includes a total of 28 athletes (soloists and team members) competing globally in road, MTB, gravel and cyclocross. And like the mechanics program, Enduro has made a concerted effort to share its support equally among men and women, including the LLG-CCB Women’s Pro Cycling multi-discipline team.

Among the most accomplished riders in the mix are cyclocross and MTB legends Katerina Nash and Geoff Kabush. Both will pursue a ‘Swiss Army Knife’ 2022 calendar, vying for wins and podiums in MTB XC, enduro, gravel and cyclocross events. Nash and Kabush know a thing or two about how nasty riding conditions can affect a bike’s performance and how the right bearings can alleviate those issues.

“I run Enduro because each bearing is engineered for a specific location and purpose on the bike,” Nash says. “Wouldn’t it be great if all bike parts came with a lifetime guarantee like Enduro’s?”

Kabush adds, “Enduro bearings are the unsung heroes of all my bikes. They keep running smoothly regardless of what I put them through.”

Elite teams representing Enduro Bearings include: UCI Pro Continental squad Wildlife Generation Pro Cycling; a fresh version of the MAXXIS Factory Team that will race in MTB XC, gravel and Enduro events; and the new LLG-CCB Women’s Cycling Team set to line-up at domestic road and criterium races, and venturing into the dirt at MTB and gravel events.

Rick Sutton, Enduro’s marketing director, had this to say: “Fast riders are great; dependable, high-quality people are even better. We have all the above racing for Enduro Bearings.”
