A New Gear

Nov. 26, 2022

If last week’s snow made you think the two-wheeling season is over, think again. Tuesday, Nov. 29, is the official launch date of Traverse City’s brand-new elite mountain bike racing team, the Great Lakes Off Road Initiative (GLORI). Over the past decade, northern Michigan has become a hub for talented cyclists, and this new team will offer young adult racers the chance to train for national and international competitions in 2023 and beyond. GLORI’s team manager, Justin Morris, is a former pro cyclist himself and says he is excited to “to enable the dreams of the many young local talented cyclists” with the help of several local businesses. GLORI will also “give the riders opportunity to pursue world ranking points which are a crucial step in obtaining selection for national teams and future professional teams.” The new team is rolling out with a soft launch on Nov. 29 at 6pm at Brick Wheels in Traverse City.
