Jordi Bago Hits the San Diego Hills
Sponsored rider Jordi Bago’s adventures continue down to San Diego, California, where he took off on the beautiful Ted Williams Bike Trail with his friend Herve from Ride 100% and photographer Harold from Imountainbike in tow. The ride included some beautiful views of the San Diego beaches and Poway on either side, as well as a variety of fairly technical terrain, with jumps and many rocky sections (including large boulders, some vertical) that tested the riders’ abilities.
The trail led them to Breeding Ground, an easier, more “fun” section with campers and many other riders, and then to Insanity which is a bit tougher, full of boulders and crazy cuts and turns. Jordi, being the pro that he is, provided his expertise to his two friends, to make it through this highly technical part!
Up next, the three plan to join Cedric Gracia for a riding camp in April.

Jordi Bago Visits the San Luis Obispo Lezyne Headquarters
Just in time for Halloween, sponsored rider Jordi Bago visited our hometown of San Luis Obispo, California, and hit up some of the beautiful trails the town has to offer for the many mountain bikers who live here. He was also shown around the Lezyne offices, and got a chance to see how products are designed and tested for final production.
Jordi also got a chance to sit in and see how Lezyne works as a 24-hour powerhouse, thanks to Skype, as a few of the 150 employees in the Taiwan offices arrived at work the next day and communicated with those in our San Luis Obispo offices before they headed home for the day.
Lezyne is constantly innovating new products for the next year’s release, and Jordi enjoyed a sneak peek on some of our conceptual models that are currently in development.

Lezyne sponsored rider Jordi Bago took quite the trip to Pamporovo in southern Bulgaria to explore and ride some of the great terrain for enduro riding there, with his new Saracen Ariel 15x bike. Velo Park Pamporovo was his destination, and it looks like it was nothing short of extraordinary.
“We rode with a new friend, one of the best enduro riders from Bulgaria, Dobrimir from Bike Venture. We checked our bikes and got ready to ride the Red line – Malina trail.
“We came up with the lift to the top of the mountain for take the first enduro trail here in Pamporovo with lot of roots and wet zones! There was some step rock gardens that tested our skills, after that is a really flowy part with turns on really nice wood berms with a good view. We cross a fire road and keep riding the trail to a flat part with many lines to get to the low part of the ski station. We get ready for the upcoming fast zone with many natural berms and some rocks that will take us down to some really fast jumps till we get down to lift area! We take the same lift up to go take some other trails in the red line with some little wall rides and jumps!”
