Something I haven’t yet mentioned is that All City has informed me that they will be sponsoring the race this year. This is pretty cool for me because I’ve been riding a few all city parts for quite a while now. I’ve been riding one of their rear track hubs for a long time, and recently got a pair of their new Deluxe double straps, which are holding up very well. The guys of all city have been producing some very hardy products out of bloomington MN for years now and things just keep getting better. Living in such a cold place is just a sign of what kind of quality these guys are dedicated to. They make things for themselves, because they are tough as nails riders who need components that are just as bulletproof. I’m excited to see what the guys have in store for us. Stay tuned for more info on them and what they send along to give away at the race.
