Our 23-member team competed in over 30 races and rides across New England and even as far as Idaho, North Carolina and South Africa. Moxies took home an incredible 26 podium finishes in the team’s second year, raising $1,150 for the Podium Fund, which supports Moxie Sparks.
A huge thank you to our major sponsors: Sugarbush Resort, Onion River Sports / Muscles Not Motors, Skirack, VNRC and the Confluence. We’d also like to thank our contributing sponsors who also helped to make the 2012 a success: Bike 29, Johannes Otter Massage, Osprey Packs, and Patagonia.
Moxie Sparks is a mentoring program for at-risk girls that we started this year in partnership with Stride Foundation and Little Bellas. In our inaugural year, we mentored two elementary school girls. The program was a huge success. Shayla and Jesslyn plan to participate next year, and we plan to build on our success and expand the program.
