UK's John Lee takes on Mega Avalanche on his Porter
52 weeks ago, UK resident John Lee decided he wanted to train for the famed Mega Avalanche ultra-distance downhill race in France. With the support of Haro and several other sponsors, John not only attained his goal but finished a respectable 28th out of about 280 racers in his class. Sadly, he was not able to compete on the Haro Porter he rode in qualifying due to multiple mechanical problems sustained during the qualifier that included a blown fork, broken rim, bent seat post, and a blown rear brake. Luckily, he was able to rent a bike at the last minute to ride for the finals.
