Monique Sawicki Grabs First Victory for Velvet at Vision 
Quest

Pua sets new course record en route to winning the grueling race in SoCal

Last weekend, X-Fusion athlete Monique "Pua" Sawicki rode her Velvet equipped Ellsworth to victory at the Vision Quest in Southern California. The Vision Quest is extremely difficult featuring over 11,000 feet of climbing in 57 miles&ouch. With more than 400 racers competing, the competition was stiff.

Pua rode the X-Fusion Velvet R to victory noting that its smooth damping and precise handling aided tremendously in handling the roughest parts of the course. During a race of this duration, precision control becomes very important as fatigue hampers the body's ability to deal with bumps in the trail. The Velvet R's smooth and precise handling helped get Pua to the finish line in 9th place overall. This is the first victory for the Velvet and it surely won't be the last.

Said Pua's manager and hubby, Ron Sawicki, "Pua had three goals, to win the female, place in the top ten overall and beat the 6 hour mark at the finish setting a super strong female record. She did all but one, she set the new record beating her last record by 29 minutes but her time was 6:01:30 just a hair short of that goal! She is still super happy with the result and is now focused on Phoenix nationals at the end of March."

Congratulations Pua!!! X-Fusion is stoked to be your suspension sponsor. Pua rides for Team Ergon/Ellsworth. Check out all her sponsors including Ergon Bike Ergonomics and Ellsworth Bicycles on the Team Mata website on their new Partners page.
