SRAM Tech Night with Matt Roy and Mo Bruno Roy

Join us Thursday, April 2 at 7pm for an informative evening with Matt Roy and Mo Bruno Roy, to hear of their experiences riding and racing SRAM components achieving great success along the way. Free food will be served along with RSC Cafe drinks. Bikes sporting the SRAM components being discussed will be on display, too.

 

Matt and Mo

Mo Bruno Roy has raced at the professional/elite level of cyclocross for 12 years and has raced SRAM components on her bikes for the duration of her very competitive life. Mo has extensive experience with SRAM’s CX1 group and will speak to the gearing, simplicity, low weight, and how it equates to cyclocross race success. Mo will also specifically address commonly asked questions by women bike riders and racers as it relates to having the right components for a variety of riding styles.

Mo’s race resume is long and impressive. In short, she has achieved 41 wins including 9 at UCI races, 3 Masters National Championships, 2 Single-Speed National Championships, and 1 Single-Speed World Championship.

Matt specializes in ultra-distance events. Matt holds the Maine North to South and West to East ultra-cycling records and has traveled great road and off-road distances solo: just him, his bike and gear. Matt will speak about his travels and how riding in the toughest conditions has translated to a very high standard for the components he rides.

Matt demands that his components live up to harsh conditions, and are highly serviceable on the fly. Matt is a top mechanic, as well, so he has spent countless hours on the tiniest details making his and Mo’s bikes ride perfectly. Matt knows SRAM components inside and out.

Matt is a professional mechanic working for pro teams in the past and has maintained Mo's bikes throughout her demanding cyclocross career.

Ride Studio Cafe’s head mechanic, Mike Berlinger, has worked the SRAM pits at national cyclocross races and has many years of supporting professional racers overseas. He will be here as well, to speak from his experience. He is responsible for each of the pro bike builds that come out of Ride Studio Cafe and he sees what happens to components with normal use in New England and when the components are subjected to racing and other harsh conditions.
