Ride424.com to Cover 24 Hour Mountain Bike Solo World Championships Live from the Race Course

10.04.2006
San Jose, California

Follow the Solo World Championships as the Race Unfolds on October 7 & 8 in Conyers, Georgia

Ride424.com, the only site on the web dedicated to ultra-endurance mountain bike racing, is launching an interactive, live update race coverage service at this weekend's 24 hour Solo World Championships, hosted by 24 Hours of Adrenalin. This will allow pit crews, team managers, and even spectators to post audio updates to the website from their cell phones. Everyone from elite professional teams to weekend warriors will be able to share their story as it unfolds.

"Ride424.com is excited to offer interactive, real time race updates to ultra-endurance MTB racing fans," said Karl Etzel, founder of Ride424.com. "We've been looking for the right way to incorporate 'Web 2.0' technologies into the site, and feedback from our loyal viewers convinced us that live race coverage will be a popular feature. Our partnership with the Crooked Cog Network has given us a broader technical skill set to draw on in implementing these capabilities, and this weekend's Solo World Championship event is a great way to get started."

"When we initially looked into expanding into the endurance MTB racing, everyone we spoke to pointed to Ride424.com as the best resource to learn about this segment," Crooked Cog founder Tim Grahl explained. "We wanted to combine our technology with the best content, and Ride424.com already had the most comprehensive information available on this niche of the racing world. We look forward to exposing sports fans of all stripes, not just mountain bikers, to the excitement and challenges of 24 hour racing."

This new race coverage feature will expand throughout 2006 and into 2007 to include events all across the country. Race promoters interested in having their race covered can contact Ride424.com for more information.
