Road Warriors

Meet The Yakima Road Warriors

Date July 19, 2012

We’ve got a great team of folks that travel the country, meeting you at some of your favorite events.

They try to figure out what YAKIMA can do to help you get outdoors more and take more friends with you when you do.

We call them the Road Warriors.

So, if you’ve ever wanted to speak with someone on the YAKIMA team in person, maybe ask a question, maybe show off your DIY rack modification on your muscle car, or even if you just want to share a story about your recent road trip, look for our booth at these upcoming events:

August 1-5 — Downieville Classic, a mountain bike race in Downieville, California.

August 7-12 — Tour of Utah, an awesome pro cycling race around Salt Lake City.

August 10-12 — Pelatonia, an organized ride to raise cancer research funds in Dayton, Ohio.

August 20-26 — U.S. Pro Cycling Challenge, a pro stage race across Colorado.

August 24-25 — Hood To Coast, a running relay race from Mt. Hood, Oregon, all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Look for the YAKIMA team running in this one, too!

Sept. 14-17 — Gauley Fest, the biggest whitewater party of the year, in Summersville, West Virginia.

If you have trouble finding us at any of these events, just give us a shout on Twitter — @yakimaracks.


Sooner or later you must move down an unknown road that leads beyond the range of the imagination, and the only certainty is that the trip has to be made.
