FLOYD LANDIS TEAMS WITH TINKER JUAREZ

If there is one thing certain about former road pro Floyd Landis, it’s that he never stops surprising us. No less certain is that the CBD guru remains a fan of bike racing and this could be best evidenced by his latest team venture; Floyd’s of Leadville Racing which includes partnering with long, long-time mountain bike legend Tinker Juarez. Although Tinker made his name as a mountain bike racer, he has competed on drop bars in everything from Unbound Gravel to the Race Across America. Typically unorthodox, the team will consist of five varied athletes competing in a variety of events.
