  • Division 26 Clothing CO-Founder Eric Carter Wins Jeep 48 Straight!

    Posted on October 29, 2008 by fsdmusic

    We always love it when one of our own does us proud and Division 26 Clothing Co-Founder and professional mountain biker Eric Carter flies the D26 flag high by earning the season championship honors at the grand finale of Jeep 48Straight Mountain Bike series in San Luis Obispo, California.

    The men's Championship Heat of today's Jeep 48STRAIGHT Mountain Bike Series at The Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, Calif., featured two of the most acclaimed racers in the history of the sport – Eric Carter of Temecula and Brian Lopes of Laguna Beach – with over 60 years of experience between them. Lopes, with four World Championships and nine National Championships ended up outlasting his friend and rival to win the individual event title, but Carter, with a World Championship, two National Championships and over 30 career victories under his belt, earned the season championship based on this race and previous stops in New Jersey and Utah.

    In what was labeled as one of the deepest fields in the history of Jeep mountain bike racing, Carter would need every ounce of experience accrued during his career to maneuver through a bracket loaded with the world's top-ranked riders. And as one of the longest tenured Jeep racers, having competed in just about every race over the past six years, Carter knew it would take clean runs, some good breaks and the ability to avoid injury to capture the prize that had eluded him for so long.

    “It's funny because I didn't feel so good on the course, and never really felt I had my rhythm, but I guess I was riding a lot faster than I thought because I had some good runs and knocked off some great competitors,” said Carter. “I had to bust tail to get this done and am kind of blown away that I was able to execute like I know how. I'm somewhat speechless because I've been trying to get this title for six years now.”
