Well it has been an awesome couple of days here at Ottawa Cross. Where to start?
I’ve been super fortunate over the past few days to secure a number of sponsors for the upcoming 2009 – 2010 cyclo-cross season. My thanks go out to the following companies:
Kingsbridge Disaster Recovery: once again Skip Williams of Kingsbridge has stepped forward to be a big supporter of Ottawa Cross and my racing and training season. Many thanks to Skip and the guys for believing in me and supporting me for the season. I really do appreciate it. Go check out the Kingsbridge web site. You won’t be disappointed. Did I mention that all the guys ride? Yep, not only are they big supporters of mine but they are all pretty good at ripping it up on the road and trails.
Clif Bar: thanks to Clif Bar, my pre-race, race and post-race nutrition needs are completely covered. I was lucky to benefit from a Clif Bar sponsorship last season and I can definitely say the Clif products are the way to go. I’m kind of addicted to the Strawberry Clif Shot Bloks and the Double Expresso Clif Shot Gels give that extra buzz I need on the start line. Hungry? Feeling a bit dehydrated? Go check out Clif Bar.
Outdoor Gear Canada: my head, feet, eyes, and wheels are all taken care of by the support of Outdoor Gear Company. Thanks to Outdoor Gear Company I’ll be ripping it up with a super smooth Giro helmet and glasses. My feet will be super styling and supported in the super fly yellow Mavic Fury mountain bike shoes. To top it off, I can train and race with confidence knowing that I’ve got the best in tubular wheels rolling under me. Thanks OGC!
Bell Lap Coaching: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I would not be where I am today without the fine coaching and training from Steve Weller of Bell Lap Coaching. Steve took me on when I was a “wannabe” and carefully guided me to where I am today – an elite cyclo-cross and road racer. Steve’s knowledge about road and cyclo-cross racing has been instrumental in developing training plans that work for me. Thanks Bell Lap Coaching, you give me the confidence to toe the line.
The Cyclery: none of this would be possible without the continued support of Vince Caceres of The Cyclery. Vince is one of the biggest supporters of cyclists in Ottawa. Thanks to Vince, I’m ripping it up on some fast Stevens bikes. If you need a bike, wheels, clothes, or a tune-up – definitely visit The Cyclery – you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Vince for the support!
