The Sub-Six Peloton Experience Offers “Pro For A Day” Event Support And A Team Environment At The Mammoth Gran Fondo
The 2018 Mammoth Gran Fondo is just over a week away and that means it’s almost time for our Sub-Six Peloton to hit the road!
Through group coaching, a team training plan, and a private Facebook group to share coaching tips and event strategies, the team is shaping-up splendidly, and is nearly 50-riders strong!
With the singular goal of completing the 102-mile route in under six-hours, and by utilizing professional-grade on-course support that is usually reserved for pro-cyclists, our Sub-Six “Wolf-Pack” is set for an incredible day on the roads of Mammoth.

For a visual of what the Sub-Six Peloton Experience will be like, think about how Team Sky domestiques supported, cared for, and worked in-service of, Gerraint Thomas at this summers’ Tour de France.
Just as these domestiques escorted the peloton of ‘le tour’ around throughout July, our Sled-Dogs will doing the same in Mammoth, all with the focus of helping our riders have the best performance possible.
But where does the “Wolf Pack” mentality come in?
Just as a wolf-pack tracks, stalks, and hunts their prey, utilizing each wolf’s unique skill and experience, a peloton of bike riders can conquer even the most challenging of roads with ease by leveraging the power of the group.
And just like a wolf-pack can take down bigger/meatier prey as the team grows in size, a peloton of riders can ride faster and more efficiently as the group swells in number.
It is with an uncanny correlation to a well-drilled cycling team that the renowned author Rudyard Kipling outlined the prowess of a Wolf-Pack in his famous poem, “The Law For The Wolves”.
Here is an excerpt we find particularly poignant:
“Now this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky.
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die…
For the strength of the PACK is the WOLF, and the strength of the WOLF is the PACK!”
So if you have heard about Sub-Six and for whatever reason not signed-up yet, there is still time!
There are a few spots remaining for last-minute entries and riders that want to be a part of this “pro for a day” experience.
