MFG-fan Eric L. emailed us today with some information on the up-and-coming Labor Day CX race. This race date has been a Seattle cross tradition for years, and this year Eric’s company Confluence is co-sponsoring the event and working with Center Cycle to make it happen. Also check out the Samurai Noodle Team Comp!
Race information here.
Our good friends down in Woodinville at Full Speed Ahead are tacking on more goodness for us this season with the addition of Neutral Support at each MFG Cyclocross race. FSA’s neutral support program will offer free service, pit work, wheels, parts and general help.
“Our basic goal is to help provide support to the lower categories so they can feel like they are just as important as the Pro 1-2’s,” according to Matthew Bianchi, FSA Technical Dept.
Super generous on FSA’s part but don’t be showing up with kicked equipment that should have been fixed the week before. Do fix that stuff with FSA parts though.
Keep your eye out for the following setup when sudden tragedy hits your CX rig:
-The FSA Sprinter Van
-A full service area for repairs and tunes.
-Wheels, stems, bars, posts and anything that may break during a race including small parts.
-Random swag and goodies (Whee!)
