#24HOP Dedicated to Sal Ruibal

Each year Epic Rides dedicates the #24HOP to an individual who's made an enormous impact on growing the popularity of mountain biking. And what greater person to dedicate the 15th 'Old Pueblo' to than a man who is not only a 2007 Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee, but who also spent 23 years at USA Today as a Sports Reporter and was named by Mountain Bike Action Magazine as "one of the 25 most influential people in mountain biking".

Whether writing for 10 Olympic Games, six Tours de France or waxing poetic on his famous Dirty Words column, the prose of Sal Ruibal has captured the hearts and imaginations of thousands of readers around the world, helping bring our beloved sport into the mainstream. He can also ride a mountain bike something fierce, having secured a podium spot in Masters 45+ at the 2002 24-Hour Solo World Championships.

Join us Friday, February 14 at 6p with a Social Hour in the 24 Hour Town Exchange Tent as we celebrate Sal's remarkable career and hear his fascinating cycling adventures. At 7p Blue Banjo BBQ will serve up the perfect pre-race Old Pueblo spread. Dinner tickets cost $15 and are limited to the first 100 people.

Official Event Poster Revealed

Greeting cards to friends and family are a tradition that goes back nearly two centuries. In the 1950s, a series of "Greetings from..." cards were designed for a number of different popular American cities, Tucson being one of them thanks to the breathtaking Sonoran Desert.

In homage to those colorfully crafted vintage postcards, our good friends at Cirrus Visual Communication chose to turn the 2014 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Official Event Poster into a giant vintage postcard, perfectly capturing 15 years of hijinx in the high desert. Hang this limited edition poster on your wall or use it as a giant postcard to make your friends in the cold and snowy north jealous. Who knows, it might just motivate them enough to make the journey southbound next year!

See ya trailside,
