We knew right away we wanted to team up and share that passion. Plus, the timing couldn't be better with the release of our New Cross Disc sets and the Alpha 400 wheels.”
"They [cyclingdirt] have fostered worldwide prestige for American cyclo-cross,” said Richard Fries, Providence promoter and founder of Elevent Consulting.
“For us to have cyclingdirt showcasing us as one of America's most prestigious 'cross races is a testament to our hard work and commitment.
