Hi, my name is Barrett James, Fuji mountain bike product manager. Welcome to Fuji’s newly-launched MTB blog, where I’ll be keeping you up to date on Fuji’s MTB sponsored pro team – the Easton Rockets, sharing my favorite trails, rides, and products, and bringing you the inside scoop on everything Fuji mountain bikes.
Mountain bikes have been the focus of my riding since around 1991. One ride at Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Trail System and I was hooked. Ripping twisty single-track is what I love most, but all kinds of riding find their way into my spare time. Being a product manager at Fuji let’s me do some of the things I love most – design great mountain bikes, work within the bicycle industry, and travel the world in the name of our common love: bikes.
This weekend, I will be traveling to Windham, NY for the Mountain Bike World Cup event. I’ll be hanging with newly-crowned XC Marathon World Champ Annika Langvad, chatting with her about how her Fuji carried her to victory. Check back next week for a race wrap-up and more of what’s happening in the world of Fuji mountain bikes!
