RiderDown Helping at Denver's Maxxis EnduroCross

RiderDown Helping at Denver’s Maxxis EnduroCross
RiderDown Foundation will once again have a booth at the annual Denver Maxxis EnduroCross event happening this Saturday, September 27, at 8:00pm!
Come see the world’s top riders take on an indoor off-road track, simulating Mother Nature’s toughest elements: logs, tires, water crossings, rocks, and dirt. This event also presents the largest purse in the country!
In addition to the RiderDown booth, Sara Schmidt, DC will be there offering much needed relief and therapy for the riders. Having 15 years of experience working with professional and amateur athletes, Dr. Schmidt began with her Sports Massage Therapist degree followed by her Doctor of Chiropractic and Certified Chiropractic Sports Practioner degrees. As an avid cross country racer, she has combined her love of racing and chiropractic by offering trackside services for local and national events for over 8 years. When asked about her efforts and on teaming up with RiderDown while providing these services at EnduroCross, Sara says; "I thought it would be a great way to help the racers attempting the challenging EnduroCross series while also raising awareness for the RiderDown Foundation and its goal of helping injured riders."
“We are excited to once again be a part of Denver’s EnduroCross race.” says RiderDown President, Bruce Vermeulen. “We could not do all of this without the help and support of the community, volunteers like Dr. Schmidt and the promoters involved. Our thanks go out to Eric Peronnard and Lance Bryson of Source Interlink Media for bringing us this great event. Additionally, David Claybaugh’s support over the years in Colorado has been huge! The exposure and dollars we have raised to help so many injured riders and their families cannot be underestimated.”
“The work the RDF is doing is extraordinary” said Lance Bryson, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Maxxis EnduroCross. “We want to do anything we can to help support this important cause.”

This year's Endurocross was a blast, our booth was set up right next to the track entrance in the pits. Many, many riders were taking advantage of the good Dr's services!!
And here's a shot from last year's EX in Denver when David Knight donated his jersey to RDF....
Oh yeah - the races were awesome too!!
No one cares how much you know ---- until they know how much you care.
Ride On & Ride Safe!
