The Kerstperiode in Belgium ended on 01 January with the GP Sven Nys in Baal, where Cross Spikes™ ambassador Katie Compton had a fantastic victory in a complete mudfest. As this intense period of European racing ends, we are excited to turn our attention to the upcoming USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships, in Reno, Nevada. The USA’s premier cyclocross event kicks-off on the 09 January with Non-Championship races, and culminates with the Elite championships on 14 January. In between, there will be some of the most competitive age group championship racing to be found anywhere. Rancho San Rafael Park is the site of this year’s race, and following the success fo the 2017 championships in Hartford, Connecticut; the Reno community has pulled together a fantastic event.
Horst Engineering will be there supporting the event, exhibiting at the Expo, and sponsoring the Mechanics National Championship. Later this week, we will post more details about on-site sales of our patented Cross Spikes™ product line.
Pre-orders are welcome and you can arrange to pick-up on site at the race. For pick-up in Reno, order online, select Pick-Up as your shipping method, and then e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make detailed arrangements. In the next week, we will post information regarding on-site sales at the Expo and race venue.
Also look for our Reno edition Cross Spikes™ newsletter during the week of 01 January. Who knows what conditions we will face? It could be muddy. It could be snowy. Regardless, the steep run-ups and off camber sections will require traction. Be prepared. Our patented designs, precision machining, and thread rolling processes make our toe spikes the best you can invest in. Cross Spikes™ are available in Stainless Steel and Titanium as individual sets, but also in Kits and Pro Kits.
So many of our ambassadors will be racing in Reno, including reigning national champions Katie Compton, Stephen Hyde, Ellen Noble, Adam Myerson, Matt Timmerman, and Lizzy Gunsalus. The best cyclocross racers in the business count on Cross Spikes™ for traction.
See you in Reno!
