We have all either been injured on the trail or been with a friend who was. What do you do in those emergency situations? Do you know how to respond and get help when you need it?
Backcountry Lifeline (BCLL) has made it their mission to prepare mountain bikers for trailside emergencies, both in the backcountry and on their own backyard tracks. Each year BCLL holds a raffle to raise money to support their work and the current giveaway is one you will not want to miss. This year’s giveaway bike is a top-shelf Yeti SB6TR.
Read the release below to find out how you can support BCLL and enter to win this Yeti dream bike build!
“Richie Rude’s Dream Bike”
The SB6TR – the third bike Yeti has donated to Backcountry Lifeline (BCLL) and The 139 Fund – leaves nothing to be wanted. With products donated by both BCLL and Yeti Factory team sponsors, this rig is ready for anything. Decked out with Maxxis Double Down rubber, Shimano XTR components, Ergon contact points, DT Swiss wheels, Fox Factory suspension, Chris King headset, Backcountry Research Strap, OneUp Guide, and Renthal Cockpit, this machine was built for the fastest race courses in the world, or a rip in your own backyard.
Richie Rude, two-time Enduro World Champion and Yeti factory team pro-rider, had this to say of the bike: “This is the best bike Yeti Cycles has ever built. The culmination of more than two decades of Yeti team R&D, it’s not just the bike I race on, it’s the one I would build myself.”
How To Enter
For as little as $10, participants can donate to The 139 Fund for a chance to win the Yeti Factory Race Team replica, custom-build SB6TR, along with Maxxis replacement tires and a Backcountry Lifeline first aid kit.
Donations can be made at Backcountry Lifeline events, select Big Mountain Enduro races, and online at http://www.backcountrylifeline.com/fundraising—yeti-tr-ga-2018.html.
Donations will be accepted through October 9th at 12:00AM (MST). The winner of the GiveAway will be announced the following day at noon. Donors do not need to be present to win.
