Adding to the deep pool of current team members, Hydrapak is proud to announce the signing of Mountain Bike Hall of Fame nominee Mike Curiak, who is currently attempting an unsupported, 1150-mile ride, along the Iditarod Trail of Alaska.

“There are very few pack makers out there producing a pack that makes me want to plunk down my hard earned green,” says Mike Curiak. “Of these, only Hydrapak has consistently shown that they’re interested in meeting the needs of epic riders and ‘bikepackers’ alike. The attention to detail, organization, and durability of Hydrapak’s Morro and Jolla I’ve been using has been nothing short of super, super impressive. I contacted Hydrapak about a year ago in hopes of joining their team. My goal? Simple, to get hands-on involved in producing the best and ‘baddest’ packs on the planet.”

Industry veteran, Mike Curiak began successfully racing mountain bikes in 1989. With initial success in the XC and DH disciplines, he transitioned into long distance racing that offered more challenge and matched his adventurous edge. 100 mile and 24-hour events only spurred his interest to go even further. Events of unbelievable magnitude were just over the horizon. Once there, he secured his spot as a pioneer within the sport of mountain biking.

Mike has set course records at the most difficult and challenging races known including the Iditasport Impossible (1,150 miles), Iditarod Trail Invitational (350 and 1,100 miles), Grand Loop Race (340 miles) Great Divide Race (2500 miles), and Kokopelli Trail Race (142 miles). These events push the boundaries to the cusp of what is humanly possible on a bike.

Curiak continues his passion for mountain biking operating LaceMine29, a successful 29” custom wheel building service from his Grand Junction workshop and documenting his extraordinary adventures through images and words on his blog at lacemine29.blogspot.com.
