BMC Goes to Austin!
Come Join Us
What better place to reveal BMC’s new Teammachine R to the US audience than in Austin the week of the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. Developed in partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies, this new bike will make its US debut at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop’s new location at 115 Sandra Muraida Way, suite 102, the week of October 15th and we’ll be hosting a full week of activities to celebrate and #RedefineRacing!
Come by Mellow Johnny’s new spot to check out the bike, join us for one or all of the planned rides and enjoy post-ride coffee and pastries on us, race the Driveway for FREE, and enjoy a bike-in movie!
See below for the complete schedule.
