Georgia Gould's 2014 Mystery Machine


Gould cx bike 2014Local Luna Chix pro, Georgia Gould is riding a new cyclocross rig this season and the Orbea branded carbon steed isn't as it appears. For 2014, Orbea Bicycles, the longtime sponsor of the Luna Chix pro team, decided not to produce a cyclocross bike. This gap in the lineup left the powerhouse team looking for a new frame to compete on.  Management decided to purchase several Ibis Hakkalugi frames and build them up with sponsor correct bits (mostly). Star riders like Georgia and Katerina Nash are on the new Ibis frames while other riders are on last year's Orbea Terra bicycles.
