Banshee Bikes are also excited to continue their support of Team Geronimo for the 2012 season.
Following a very successful 2011 season with over 50 podium finishes, Team Geronimo / Banshee Bikes will return to the racing circuit in 2012. Brian Buell, Michael Buell, Lear Miller, Jess Pedersen, and their junior development riders will compete in downhill, dual slalom, and four cross events at the Pro GRT, US Grand Prix, Mountain States Cup, US Open, Crankworx Whistler, Crankworx Colorado, the Sea Otter Classic, and select World Cup rounds.
