In partnership with Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and Mammoth Fall Century and Gran Fondo’s Marketing and PR Director, Randy Fendon, Mammoth Lakes Tourism hosted three journalists during the 2014 Mammoth Fall Century and Gran Fondo event on Sept. 6. Neil Shirley from Road Bike Action, Ryan Yee from Peloton Magazine and Dillon Clapp from ROAD Magazine visited Mammoth Lakes, rode in, and crushed the Mammoth Fall Century Ride. Neil took first place for the second year in a row, and has already penned a piece from this year’s experience describing the ride as a “gem” of the High Sierra.
The next day, Sunday, Sept. 7, these three journalists, along with Bill Cockroft of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and Chris Lyman of Lyman PR took on the #mammothmediagamble and rode approximately 150 miles on the way to Las Vegas for Interbike. Their route took them over Westgard Pass. Social media chatter took off with posts about this ride.
