From a Women’s and Dealership Perspective Vicki Gray is Timeless


For over thirty-three years the timeless Vicki Gray has been “hawking bikes.” Relentless in her efforts to make a positive impact on the sports we love, the always approachable, likeable and energetic Vicki Gray seems to make time for everyone.

Jeff Slavens is Bad to the Bone


Jeff Slavens is Bad to the Bone – the man raised over $45,000 for OHV advocacy in a single calendar year, proving that he is one the strongest supporters for OHV recreation in Colorado.
