Founded in 2005, the Topeak-Ergon Racing Team
is right at home on the elite marathon and cross country racing circuits. With reigning European Marathon Champion, Alban Lakata, Leadville 100 winner, Sally Bigham and current German National Marathon Champion 2013, Robert Mennen, three of the world’s best riders will line up for Topeak-Ergon Racing Team in 2014.
The close relationship between Topeak-Ergon and Canyon Product Development is at the core of our partnership.

For more than 20 years now Dave has been giving the trails a hard time. His opponents have no easy time of it because for the most part they have to battle their way through the dust that Dave's back wheel throws up. His victories at the Leadville Trail 100 show that he rides at a consistently high level. Dave was even able to overcome former pro Lance Armstrong in the race which he considers to be "his event".
