Once again, Backcountry Lifeline is hosting a raffle to help improve emergency preparedness to the mountain bike community. Founded in 2015 after the death of Will Olson during a Big Mountain Enduro/EWS race in Crested Butte, CO, BCLL is all about giving riders the tools and training they may need in an emergency on the trails.
Yeti has supported their efforts since the beginning, with owner Chris Conroy stating “What Backcountry Lifeline is bringing to the sport is long overdue. When everyone is out there riding fast and charging hard, accidents are going to happen. We have a responsibility to be able to help each other out – we’re a tribe.” More than just supporting the cause, Yeti has been walking the walk by training their entire staff, management team, and Factory Race Team in the BCLL courses over the past year and a half.
But they’ve also helped make the latest dream bike giveaway a reality with an incredible “Richie Rude Dream Bike”. Starting with the Yeti SB6 platform, the build includes a Shimano XTR drivetrain, DT Swiss wheels with Maxxis Double Down tires, Ergon components, Fox Factory suspension, Chris King headset, Backcountry Research strap, OneUp chain guide, and a Renthal cockpit.
In partnership with The 139 Fund, Backcountry Lifeline, and Yeti and their Race Team sponsors, the giveaway ends tonight at midnight so you have the rest of today to buy your entries. Prices start at $10 for a single entry and you start getting price breaks on the number of entries once you buy 10 or more. The winner will be chosen tomorrow via random.org and will be announced shortly after.
