2019 MI DUOLE TEAM SPONSORS
Mi duole Cycling expresses our heartfelt gratitude for the sponsors who make this team possible.
Mi Duole and Barbacoa go together like Scotty Pippen and Michael Jordan. We are peanut butter and jelly. This partnership is 15 years old and keeps getting better and better. The team is grateful to call Barbacoa home and even more grateful for all of the food they so generously provide. Thank you for fueling us!
From their website, “At Barbacoa, you’ll always find quick, fresh, guilt-free food at a fair price. No wonder we’re a favorite of people with active lifestyles, including professional and college athletes, bike racers and other top performers. We are not the biggest quick casual Mexican restaurant company, but we believe our relatively small size allows us to better serve our customers common sense food....because we believe that you deserve to eat well.”
One of the strengths of Mi Duole is that most of the sponsors are also riders on the team. Jones Waldo comes to us from long time team member Ken Jones.
“For nearly 150 years, Jones Waldo has worked with clients that have enriched the economic, social and cultural climate in Utah. We were there for the transition of Walker Bank to Western Bancorp and then again as Wells Fargo took the reigns. We have represented Ballet West, the Utah Food Bank, Utah Symphony/Opera and many other nonprofit organizations. The Salt Lake Tribune has been a client for many years and the firm was instrumental in the formation and growth of Mountain Fuel Supply (now Questar). We were also privileged to have Calvin L. Rampton (three-term Utah governor) with us from 1976 to 2007.”

Hangar 15 Bicycles was founded in 1993 by Draper resident Mike Pratt, under the original name of Canyon Bicycles. Mike was a passionate cyclist at an early age. While serving as a Marine, Mike got a lot of his friends into cycling. One of his friends thought it would be fun to ride his bike home when he was discharged later that year. At the time they were stationed on the coast of North Carolina & his friend’s home was in Nevada. Mike joined his friend on that adventure across the country. It was on that bike trip across the country that Mike decided that a bike shop was in his future.
Mike has come a long way from the original 1800 sf. space in the Hidden Valley Shopping center. Hard work and long hours were only part of the recipe. It was Mike’s passion for cycling and an understanding of what customers wanted that set the store in the right direction. Fast turn-around on repairs, knowledgeable and helpful service and sales staff, and a reinvestment in Inventory were key elements. In July of 2017, Hangar 15 Bicycles made a name change to Hangar 15 Bicycles and has Utah’s largest selections of bikes & accessories. Hangar 15 Bicycles is the oldest retail business on 12300 South today.
Mike and Hangar 15 Bicycles has always been involved in the cycling community. Mike, along with friend Scott Miles, hosted a race series for several years in the mid-90s. Many trails they built for those early races are still in use today. Hangar 15 Bicycles has both a road and mountain team, along with a junior development team. The Hangar 15 Bicycles – Shimano Elite Road Team gives local racers the opportunity to race on a bigger stage. The team is currently one of the best in the county. Along with a commitment to high school mountain bike league Hangar 15 Bicycles also provides the use of Cyclocross bikes for free to junior riders.
Although it’s hard to catch Mike on the sales floor today, he is just as involved as day one. Still working six days a week trying to ensure Hangar 15 Bicycles offers the best customer experience possible. Mike said, “although we are the number one bike shop in the market based on volume and selection, we are not perfect so there is always a reason to work harder and strive for improvement”.
New for 2019, Hyland’s will power the Mi Duole cycle team. Hylands’s is a 114-year-old family-owned homeopathic company based in Los Angeles. It produces a number of pain relief products, as well as an anti-cramping tablet. They are the “Official Cramp Relief Partner” of Mi Duole! Hyland’s products will be part of our team rides, team events, packet pick-ups, races and any other place those legs start cramping up.
“Hyland’s is celebrating over a century-long commitment to making safe and natural homeopathic medicines. During all these years, we’ve never lost touch with the reasons why our founders started this company – beginning with the pharmacist and visionary George Hyland back in 1903. We have always been driven by the simple scientific proof of how the body can call upon its own natural defenses to heal and restore balance. This is the basis of homeopathic medicine. So even during times when cultural and political factors have pushed homeopathic medicine from the mainstream, Hyland’s has solidly stood its ground with integrity and wisdom, knowing that as sure as the sun rises each day, our medicines are effective, virtually free of side effects and able to be taken by nearly anyone at any time, from infants to the elderly.
“Today, as countless conventional medicines developed by others prove to produce complicated or even harmful side effects, the need for natural homeopathic medicines that work without side effects is increasing. Hyland’s stands as a leader in innovations that answer to the changing health needs of our modern world. From master athletes who use Hyland's Leg Cramps on their 3000 mile adventures, to toddlers who can’t yet walk but have the capacity to send their parents running to fetch one of our Baby Oral Pain products – Hyland’s medicines share the milestones of people’s lives. We’re there when legs are needing a rest, when aching ears need drops, when noses need unclogging, and when little bugs in the hair become big problems for everyone. Hyland’s is for all ages at all times. It’s an honor to play a role in your lives and we’re grateful for your trust and interest in who we are.”
Voler have been our gear specialists for years. They have incredible customer service. Their gear advances and changes each year with better fabrics and designs. The team loves being outfitted by Voler.
Voler was founded in 1986 in San Luis Obispo, California. What began as a small operation producing windsurfing bags and cycling helmet covers quickly morphed into creating top-notch custom cycling apparel for teams, events, and other cycling brands. By 1996 Voler moved to Grover Beach (15 minutes south of SLO) and ramped up production in a much larger facility. We added on to the facility in 1999 and started the Voler online Store (previously Velowear) selling our non-customized branded apparel direct to consumer.
New for 2019, the Larry H. Miller Dealerships will be a title sponsor of the Mi Duole Cycle Team. New rider, Zane Miller, has brought the sponsorship to the team and we couldn’t be more grateful.
