The NedFurtado Circuit Race is on for Saturday up at DMR. In case you are wondering, the title NedFurtado is an attempt to honor the names of two great Durango champions, 1990 mtb world champions’ Ned Overend and Juli Furtado. Remember that 20 years ago, the both of em’ laid victorious sweat on the very dirt that we will soon be shredding.
With the help of Durango Coca-Cola and DMR, DEVO is pleased to be announcing the return of mtb action to DMR.
