We’ve been doing a ton of work and planning for this year’s CX Team. But we’ve also had a lot of help this year from our sponsors. In the first installation of thanks, we’ve posted some pics of the components and products that have come in our hands the last few weeks.
It was great seeing our riders out this past weekend, working all the bugs out, and shaking off the rust for a new season. By the Gloucester Gran Prix, we’ll have new CUPPOW/Geekhouse Riders, Kits, Tent all ready to rock! Thanks again to CUPPOW for stepping up as title sponsor this year, and enabling us to create an epic Elite Squad!!!
As also, thanks to Thomson components for all the support over the years, and for continually making an amazing product! We use Thomson components on our bikes year round so it’s great to have them be part of our cross team as well.
Velocity really came through this year with some amazing Major Tom and A23 Wheelsets for the Elite Squad. Disc or Canti, these rims are now made in the USA. Super light, super strong. You’ll see these wheels on the majority of bikes we build.
Paul Components is stepping up the the plate this year with Canti and Mini brakes. I have to say, I’ve been running the Mini-V’s for almost a month now, and I’m in LOVE!
Who doesn’t love a GU 30 min before a race?
Conti came through with a pair of X-Cross tires for the entire squad. I have to say these are my favorite clincher race tire. I’ve also been starting the season on the File Treads for dry and dusty courses, and I’m loving them more and more.
Kind bar also came on last year as a team sponsor. While Brad and I try to hoard as many of these as possible, they are a great pre or post race snack. And also great on those longer rides in the back of the jersey pocket.
I might have used the word Love a few too many times in this post. But we’re excited to work with our sponsors because we love their products, spec them on our personal bikes and use them just about every day. We don’t support a company if we don’t LOVE what they make. Thanks again guys, and see you at the races!
