Sampson recognized among cycling’s Class of the 1990s

Glenwood Springs resident Eric Sampson was among those featured in a pictorial highlight of key individuals who have been influential in shaping today’s cycling world.

While the vast majority of names won’t be recognized by those outside the bike business, enthusiasts will certainly recognize the brands that they represented. The key players from Shimano, Sram, Sachs, Giro, Ringle, Yeti, Ibis, Raleigh, Cannondale, Rock Shox, Specialized, Ritchey, Fisher, Schwinn, Nishiki and Trek were represented in the publication’s look back into what it called the Class of the 1990s.

Sampson notes that like most of his associates from years ago, he is far from riding off into the sunset (so to speak) and has a long list of new products set to be released in the coming months. Sampson was one of the bigger clipless companies for years and has pioneered many technologies and concepts in bicycles and components.
