Hello Racers and Support folks,
Just a quick update for the upcoming November 15th race. There is lot of things happening for this race that has never happened before. We are hosting quite a few major bike industry companies out at the venue. For the first time that in a long time in SoCal we will have Intense Cycles, Ellsworth, and Turner Bikes all having full setups to include full demo fleets. It is an amazing event to have 3 of the top frame makers in the world available for our racers and spectators to demo and get on site info about. We will also have a couple of smaller more custom frame builders on site for demos and info. They are Vassago, Siren, and Russ Denny. Also on the card will be The Trek WSD ( womens Specific Designs ) tour and demo trailer.
I want to mention a huge contributer to the November race! Hammer Nutrition has come on full bore with unbelievable support for the racer series. We will have Hammer nutrition products all over the venue to help our racers and support crews survive and thrive the day! Look for Hammer Heed in the water station jugs and hammer gels and bars at the start finish area to help power you through the day!
