Pillars // The Entrepreneurs: Kathy Salisbury & JC Canfield

Bringing a business to fruition is often quite literally a dream come true, be it a locally owned bike shop or a hand-made hip pack. For Kathy Salisbury, co-owner of Fanatik Bike Co., and JC Canfield, owner of High Above, their businesses are their livelihood, but also a way to support and contribute to the local mountain bike community.

About the Series: Every community has its cornerstones, the people making forward progression possible.

Want to go fast and win races? Yeti's all-new SB160 might just be your ticket to the podium. | Yeti Cycles photo. Under the butts of Richie Rude and Bex Baraona, Yeti has posted some stellar results on the Enduro World Series circuit in the last few years, especially remarkable since their old bikes didn’t necessarily follow the trend of “longer, slacker, and beefier is better.” Richie won the EWS aboard a 150mm-travel bike with a 64.5-degree head angle, whereas most of his competitors
