Methods to Winning Host the Circle of Doom 2019 p/b Muscle Monster in the San Gabriel Mountains

Methods to Winning LLC announces the Circle of Doom 2019 presented by Muscle Monster taking place October 20, 2019

Los Angeles (5th September 2019): Methods to Winning LLC (M2W) is an events and promotion company that prides itself on engaging the cycling community. M2W is run by reigning USA Crit Champion Justin Williams, 10x National Champion Rahsaan Bahati, and 6x California Crit Champion Charon Smith. It has just announced the Circle of Doom 2019 (COD) presented by Muscle Monster. Coming off a successful “COD” in 2017 and 2018, the principals of “M2W” are anticipating growth for the 2019 edition.

Rahsaan Bahati, says, “the Grand Fondo season is here and we want to continue to produce high-level events that are affordable for all. Our job is not only to host the event but to provide an exceptional experience to everyone in attendance. We understand that many options exist and we are pleased to get local riders from the area to participate. It means a lot to us that they support our ride when they could ride these very roads for free”.

The Circle of Doom is a cycling event that has been going on in Southern California for over 7+ years. It started out with a group of riders being lost in uncharted territory, which quickly turned into a free, self-supported annual ride. After much success, M2W decided to legitimize the ride which has taken it to the next level.

New to COD is the custom event jersey and bib shorts manufactured locally by Eliel Cycling along with competition Strava segments throughout the course which add a competitive feeling and an option of the “Half Doom” which is 78-miles and 5,000ft of vertical gain.

The Circle of Doom is known as “the most challenging group ride” in Southern California. Riders can expect to experience a route that provides an European feel and climbs that can challenge the most experienced rider. Following the Doom, participants are treated to a vendor area with catered lunch, spirits, music and awards.

COD is the best Gran Fun Ride where we take care of you before, during and after. We offer an experience for all riders and hope that you will consider the Circle of Doom for one of your Gran Fondo experiences. In doing so, you help M2W to support the Bahati Foundation’s mission to GIVEBACK. 10% of the proceeds from COD go to their annual Bike and Holiday Tree giveaway & Health Expo.

Principal Ken Vinson is excited with the partners and supporters they have assembled. It’s a clear indication that they see value in our event and believe in supporting the cycling community.
