We’re recently back from The Tour of the Battenkill – what a great race.  Congrats to organize Dieter Drake for putting on a uniquely American event, (with a touch of Euro-flavor). We hope the race continues to grow, and it’s something we’ll look forward to on the calendar each year.

We were up north in support of the Champion Systems p/b Stan’s No Tubes team, and the squad didn’t disappoint (and neither did their tubeless tires). Dan Chabanov, in his first pro UCI race, came in 37th, in the main group of finishers. Chapeau Dan! Our colleague Chad Butts of enduranceWERX came in 19th in the Masters 30+ field, and while we don’t want to rub it in, we think he could have come in first were it not for an ill-timed flat inside 5k to go.

Here’s a list of some other notable finishers:

Allan Rego 7th (in his first race as a newly-minted CAT1. Wow!)

With this sticker, you're in good hands

What do all these folks have in common?, you may be asking.  They all had their race bikes prepped by us! While each racer has their own story as to how they got their result, we’re immensely proud to be part of their effort. Congrats to them (and to all the finishers) on a great race. See you next year!
