Temecula, CA - The 12 Hours of Temecula is a tri-annual mountain bike endurance race that takes place in the beautiful hills of Southern California near Vail Lake. Chris Fillmore and a few of his "moto-racer" turned die-hard cyclists friends set out for a day of amazing trails, blue skies, and friendly competition.

This 12-hour day of "good old time" fun brings together a group of some of the worlds best racers, Fillmore and the Bostrom brothers, Eric and Ben, along with competitive cyclist Oliver Hutchinson to race along side each other from sun up to sun down. What got Ben Bostrom – 1999 AMA Superbike Champion - into mountain bike riding? His brother Eric Bostrom, a former AMA SuperSport and Formula Extreme champion. Eric took Ben down the trail once and he's hardly stopped pedaling since.

"It was amazing. We ended up putting together 2 teams that were so damn close in time," says Fillmore. Not that winning matters when you're having fun with friends, but it sure does make the day a little sweeter… Suit up in your cycling chamois, grab a bottle of water and find out who wins the battle in episode 6 of Following Fillmore on
