Staten Island Cross
We’re in the heart of the cyclocross season right now and Embrocation has been camped out at all the races recently, both supporting the team and selling our goods to the crowds. This weekend, we’ll be heading down to New York City to attend Staten Island Cross. This race is put on by our friends at NYC Velo and is the only cross race within the city limits of New York. We also hear our friends from IF are going to be there as well. We hear good things about the course and always like an excuse to hang around with the NYC Velo guys, so we’ll be there. And we’ll be at the after party at NYC Velo itself.
This week we welcome a couple new shops now carrying Embrocation Cycling Journal:
On Your Left Cycles in Louisville, KY
Billed as Louisville’s “smallest bicycle shop” On Your Left Cycles has has an impressive mix of high end products. Mark our words, with Cyclocross World Championships in 2013 and the gear up for that, Louisville is going to one of the up-and-coming cycling cities in the world.
Bicycles Outback in Waco, TX
There are two kinds of bicycle retailer websites in the world. Those that focus on the products and those that focus on riding. Check out the website for Bicycles Outback and you’ll see the latter. These guys ride bikes and love being around other people who do. They’re also the first official Embrocation stockist in Texas – Austin, if you feel embarrassed, you should.
New Product: Embrocation Podium Cap
To most people in the world this would be called a ‘baseball hat’ right? In our little world this is a Podium Cap, and we’re willing put our money where our mouth is. For the remainder of cyclocross season (that being from today, November 8th, though the National Championships in Bend, OR in December) if you find yourself on the podium of any cyclocross race, we’ll send you one of our podium caps for free. Just email us and include a link to your race results showing you in the top three for any field, your mailing address and if possible, a picture of you atop the aforementioned podium. Limit one per person, so all you sandbaggers who are in the top three every race are only entitled to one podium cap!
