Ben Spurrier, in the final stages of preparation for the Silk Road Mountain Race

This week, GFC’s Ben Spurrier is traveling to the remote country of Kyrgyzstan to tackle the Silk Road Mountain Race. Ben has spent the last 8 months training and preparing to ride over 1,100 miles and 100,000+ vertical feet as he traverses the rugged terrain of the Tian Shan Mountains. GFC is proud to support Ben’s dream.

“Riding in the Silk Road Mountain Race has been a dream of mine for years. I am looking forward to riding through the remote mountainous landscape and experiencing the nomadic culture of Kyrgyzstan. There have been many obstacles to turn this dream into a reality and I am so grateful for the support of my entire team here at GFC.”

Check back soon, we hope to hear from Ben sometime soon!
