The Mob Shop Launches Pro Tour E-Bike Team

April 1, 2021

The MOB Shop, Ojai's premier bike shop, today announces the formation of a Pro Tour e-bike team.

 With racing resuming again, it's a great time for us to jump into the world of racing, and as we are all aware, electric bikes are the future.

"We're very excited about this opportunity to participate in the UCI World Tour!" said Tim Rhone, The MOB Shop Racing Team Director. "I just need to submit our application to the UCI, then reach out to our Specialized sales rep about sponsorship, which I should have done by tomorrow. I figure we'll be ready to race by the time the Tour of California rolls around again!"

The co-ed team will feature elite riders Christiaan Van Zyl, May Battleson, and Sean Hofmeister. They will race in men's and women's races, depending on which one offers the better prize money.
