In July, 2010, Bob’s Red Mill welcomed Maureen Bruno-Roy, a charming vegan cyclocross rider, to our cyclocross sponsorship program. In the past three years, we have added riders and teams around the country to our program with product sponsorship and Bob’s Red Mill team kits. Maureen was the overall winner of the 2009 USA Cycling Cyclocross Calendar and the first professional athlete we have ever sponsored. We’re so excited to work with Maureen and have been watching her progress closely for several years.
Not only is she a great rider, but Maureen has been a long-time user and fan of Bob’s Red Mill. “I’m honored to have the support of Bob’s Red Mill during what I expect to be my most successful season yet,” said Maureen Bruno Roy. “Because of its energizing properties, I now start each day – whether it is going to involve training, competing in a race, or simply heading to work – with a warm bowl of Bob’s Steel Cut Oats, with a dash of maple syrup of course.”
Bruno Roy, who together with her husband races as MM Racing, also keeps a blog highlighting her vegan recipes at thevegandelicious.wordpress.com. For 10 years, she has worked as professional massage therapist specializing in deep tissue, sports, pre-natal and Thai yoga massage. She runs a full time massage practice in her hometown of Arlington, Mass., where she has worked with many of the top ranked domestic and international cycling teams.

Needless to say, we were overjoyed to hear that Maureen Bruno-Roy took third this weekend at the Verge New England Championship Cyclo-Cross Series presented by Cycle-Smart on Saturday in Williston, VT. Bruno-Roy fought hard for a podium spot against Sally Annis and Crystal Anthony, finally securing a podium spot with third place. The weather was picture perfect for the first cyclocross weekend of the season. Riders were out in force across the country to kick off the wet and muddy season in style. The Portland series kicks off on October 3rd, but series may be under way in your area. For more information, check here.
