The Sonoran Pirates (aka Son-Rats) is a team of mountain bikers from AZ, MI, CA, CO, MD, PA, UT, TX, ID & The U.K. The team was established in 2004.
Across the ranks they try and hold true to their fundamental belief that... "the only thing that matters is that you ride... not how fast you ride... nor the gear upon which you ride."
Pirates @ Dawn2Dusk
The Knox brothers... aka Lance Upper Cut & Mountain Goat are racing today as a duo in Dawn Till Dusk 12 Hour MTB race in Gallup, NM. The picture above is the "timing chip necklace" that they have to wear. The trail is a "slow" 12 miles with high ledges and a few drops offs (could get sketchy) and is purportedly sweet (i.e. similar to Fruita or Grand Junction).
