Our newest team equipment sponsor is the legendary Cinelli, who have gone completely above and beyond the call of duty to create these little honeys for us:
That’s right. You saw it correctly. Imagined and designed by our very own Jeremy Dunn; produced by Cinelli, these are custom painted Cinelli Ram integrated bar/stem units. Embrocation Team Edition custom painted Ram bars. You can’t get them – at least not yet, but we may be working on it… maybe. Anyway, enough words.
Hole Shot by Backyard Blam
We’ll be at it. And if you’re in the general Portland area, so should you. Go visit Amanda’s blog for updates on this event and to check the list of sponsors as they come in. We’ll be kicking down some Embro goodies for sure, so stay tuned.
JDK Design to do Soft Goods
Those who’ve been paying attention to the goings on here at Embrocation will know the name JDK Design for a couple reasons: 1) They were guest designers for Embrocation Volume 3 and 2) their CEO, Steve Francisco is an integral member of the Embrocation race team. As of this week, JDK will be our newest supplier for custom soft goods – T shirts, jackets, etc. They’ve already contributed to our lineup of clothing by designing and producing our special edition Dope shirt. Look for more goodies in the coming months lovingly produced by JDK.
We got a little care package in the mail the other day – a sample package from one of our new team sponsors: Pro Bar. If you’re not familiar with these guys, you should be. These are the best tasting, most satisfying and healthiest energy bars around. They’re food made from real food – read the ingredients and you’ll be shocked to recognize each and every one in the bar – no fillers, no chemicals; just delicious stuff. We’re busy handing these little beauties out to the team and should have some reviews on the team site before too long.
Team Schedule and a Special Deal
Cyclocross is coming. Can you feel it? Can you? We can, and we’re getting our gear in order, including our team bikes provided by Ridley. International Bicycle Center in Boston is our team’s official retail sponsor. They’re also one of the biggest Ridley dealers in the US and, come fall, they have one of the biggest selections of Ridley cross bikes you could possibly imagine. If you happen to bump into one of the Embrocation team riders in the coming months, you can score a special team discount card – pictured above. This card, when presented at either of the International Bicycle locations, will give you a discount on the Ridley of your choice. It’s a pretty good deal on some pretty great bikes, but you can only get this with the card; and you can only get the card from one of the Embro boys or girls. You can find them in the coming weeks at these events:
July 30th thru August 1st – Tour of the Catskills; Hunter and Windham, NY
August 1st – Norwell Circuit Race; Norwell, MA
August 4th – Gran Prix of Beverly; Beverly, MA
