Race Team Sponsored by First Street Business Gets Some Internet Time

A downtown Benicia business has sponsored a downhill race team.

The downhill racing team sponsored by Wheelz in Motion, a long-time fixture downtown, is in a video featured on PinkBike.com, a website devoted to mountain bikes. 

“We’ve been doing this for a long time- since 2004-2005.  We give them shop discounts,” said Greg Andrade, owner of Wheelz in Motion.  “That’s what we can afford as a small shop.”

“They can use our shop to work on their bikes too,” said Andrade

The team of Matt Moore, Jonathon Simoneti and Wade Jarmel were filmed riding in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland.
