Mazda CX-50 Crossover SUV – Life Time Grand Prix



The Mazda CX-50 is joining the Life Time Grand Prix2 cycling series—one of professional cycling’s biggest and most exciting off-road race series. With its demanding courses through some of America’s most beautiful landscapes and host cities, the series invites cyclists to nature’s most incredible paths. Because of Mazda’s belief that we are more human in nature, launching the CX-50 with this partnership is a perfect fit. The design and performance of the CX-50 enables drivers to follow their passions and experience the benefits of being outdoors.

THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
 
This series of six iconic off-road races invites 60 of the most seasoned professional cyclists to tackle uniquely challenging courses across multiple types of terrain. Cyclists applied to compete in the series, and just 30 men and 30 women were chosen to move forward. With a combination of gravel events and mountain biking specific events, the Life Time Grand Prix2 series challenges professional cyclists like no other race series. Each event varies in location, distance and elevation gain, making the series a true show of the athletes’ ability to adapt.
 
The Life Time Grand Prix2 presented by Mazda also rewards professional cyclists like no other. A $250,000 total prize purse with equal payout for women and men is on the line. For these professional athletes, taking home the prize purse means an increased likelihood of sponsorship and more opportunities to continue their cycling careers.
