Where In The World Is The New HDB Kit?

High Desert Bicycles Kit Sighted:  We hoped seeing the new High Desert Bicycles kit on local roads and trails wouldn’t be like trying to track down Saskwatch.  But we think we have valid photographic proof the new kit is making the rounds in the area.  Get out your digital forensic tools and prove the validity of these photos.  Send me your photos sporting the new kit; faked or not.  Podium shots from The Gila are required!

Marco Quintana and Jeff Flemming called braggin’ rights for 10th and 11th places respectively in the 83 mile ride.

For the ladies, Lauren Thompson owns second place bragging rights in the 83 mile ride.
