Dave Anolik - A Man on a Mission

VeloPro brand Ambassador Dave Anolik created his own event at Portland, Oregeon's Mt. Tabor. This unique park is built on a dormant volcano, features watershed reservoirs, and is covered in tall pines. Mt. Tabor is about 650 feet in elevation and has close to 3 miles of paved roads and paths that make for nice short climbs and descents.
