Rapha Says, “Keep Cross and Clash On”


Long-time friends and Series Sponsor Rapha are once again stirring things up for ‘Cross 2011 with their Keep Cross and Clash On campaign.

The premise is simple:  Celebrate cross and give a nod to the “race within a race” that we all know goes on, week in and week out.

For the 2011 MFG season, we’ll be playing along with Rapha in support of Keep Cross and Clash On by inciting a Naming of your Nemesis at each event.

You know that fellow racer who just pips you at the line each week, and no matter what you do, you are always within a place or two of this person?   For Randy Salomon, his nemesis is of course Andy Salmon.

Starting this weekend at the Rapha-Focus GP, you can visit the Rapha tent, name your nemesis*, and you’ll be awarded a Kill-Sticker at the following MFG event.

*Your nemesis is chosen by you.

*The naming of your nemesis does not have to be mutually agreed upon by both parties.

*The spirit of the battle is that it’s a close race; choose appropriately.

*You can name a new nemesis each week, but it’s probably more fun to battle all year.

*Rapha Kill Stickers are awarded for battling in MFG races only.

    How do you assign your nemesis?
    Rapha- can you please whip up a NEMESIS jersey plz? I’m thinking something similar to the Twin Six Motor except with “NEMESIS” across the back (yoke) of the jersey. Just a thought. Thanks for the race today!
