Bruce McGrew, owner of ProCycling, jumped at the chance to sponsor Andy Bohlmann's Palmer Park 50 mountain bike race.
"I like to support local racing," McGrew said. "I've helped Andy with a number of races in the past and I think it's a good cause.I'm thankful that we have a promoter like Andy who is doing races in the Colorado Springs area and I'm happy to help."
McGrew said he was pleased with the way the event came together - despite the recent rain storms that forced the race crew to change the course at the last minute.
And more races sponsored by ProCycling are possible.
"I hope Andy keeps doing these local mountain bike races," he said. "I'd be happy to be a part in the future."
McGrew placed second in his category in the 25-mile race.
