Chris and Colleen bring home the gold at Nationals in Bend Oregon

September 10, 2012

In June 2011, Chris DeLaTorre and Colleen Montoya from Huntington Beach, CA, became proud owners of a Paketa V2r racing tandem. Experienced single bike roadies, this husband-and-wife team decided to give tandem riding a whirl. Less than a year later, Chris and Colleen entered and won their very first time trial race: the Southern California Nevada Cycling Association’s State Championship, mixed tandem, 90+ category.

Last week, Chris and Colleen rode their little red rocket (a mere 23 ½ pounds) to gold in the USA Cycling National Championships’ mixed tandem elite category in Bend, OR.

Chris is a member of the Radsport/Pinnaclife Cycling Team, which racked up gold, silver, and bronze medals at this year’s Nationals, all on their Paketa V2 magnesium tandems. Way to go, Chris, Colleen, and Radsport/Pinnaclife!
