My main man Brook Watts who is one of the principal people involved in throwing the biggest kick off party for ‘cross in the world, CrossVegas, sent me this press release to share. Simon Burney’s new clothing company, Schlamm is ponying up to help sponsor CV! If you don't know who Simon Burney is, he’s Mr. Cross. Anyone who has been around the sport long enough has his first edition of his now famous book (in Third Edition) Cyclocross: Training and Technique. Our boy Tim Johnson was his ‘model’ for the 3rd Edition! Oh, and here’s how close I got to Simon once. I should have had him sign my breast:
UK based cycle clothing company Schlamm Ltd have joined the growing list of supporters of season-opener CrossVegas by agreeing to be the “Official Race Merchandise Supplier” of the event. Schlamm will provide official clothing to all event staff, race marshals and credentialed photographers, in addition to presenting a range of race merchandise that will be available before the event online, and at the event.
“CrossVegas has rapidly grown into THE place to be at the start of the cyclocross season, and a great place for all the Interbike show-goers to catch up after a hard day’s work and watch the stars of the sport beat the hell out of each other for an hour” says Schlamm director Simon Burney. “ Schlamm are delighted to be associated with this prestigious race, and whilst Vegas doesn’t typically have the ‘cross weather that our line of clothing was intended for, this will be a great place for us to start our winter season and remind people that it will get colder and wetter pretty soon after!”
"We're delighted to be able to offer both CrossVegas event spectators and the general public CrossVegas merchandise," commented Brook Watts, co-promoter of CrossVegas, "It's great to have them on board as a sponsor."
Schlamm specializes in clothing for cyclocross, and for training in those weather conditions you would rather not be out in, in addition to a great range of race and event merchandising, and casual wear. www.schlamm.uk.com.
