HUGE Thanks!!!

With two weekends and 3 races left in the Zanconato singlespeed series I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all our great sponsors, racers, supporters and promoters for making the series so rad! This all was dreamt up almost a year ago at Ice Weasels after a few too many beer handups during the 1/2/3 race. Watching 100 singlespeeders get totally rad at White Barn farm made a bunch of us ask the question why can't we do this all cross season? I mean seriously. So we did it. Mike Zanconato put so much into this. And for that I am gonna give him a huge HUP hug at Ice Weasels! He was the mastermind behind this. And to be honest we are just getting started. This was just a test to see if it could work. Next year will be even radder trust me.
For now, again, thank you. Thanks to our great sponsors: Zanconato Custom Cycles who donated the Grand Prize a handbuilt tig welded team frame; High & Mighty who provided beer for every race; Lazer Helmets who donated two gorgeous helmets to the raffle, Bikereg,, All Hail the Black Market, Chrome, Castelli, Andy Ewas and New England Athletic, Bellwether, Feedback sports, Mad Alchemy, Squirt Chain Lube, Recycled Sports of NH, Derek Griggs.
Thanks to the racers and promoters who backed us. Huge thanks to all the teams that supported the series. I can't say enough how great it was seeing Newbury Comics, Geekhouse, NEBC, HUP, Zanconato, MRC, Cambridge, Quad, and the entire NECX just get so stoked to try and have fun racing singlespeeds all season long. The series has been amazing. Each race has had its own flavor and that has been so cool. Can't wait to see you all at Ice Weasels and to crown the first ever King and Queen of singlespeed CX in the NECX! And who will win that Zank frame? That is going to be off the charts. Who ever wins it will freak out I guarantee it!

I want to personally thank Roger Cadman for rocking so hard, Pete Smith for making it rain glitter this season, Abel, Derek Griggs, Rob Bauer, Mike Zanconato, Scott Rosenthal, Matt Aumiller, Russ Cambell, Gary David, Colin Reuter, Uri Halevi, Thom Parsons, Sara Bresnick, Katherine Snell, Kurt and Mike and Ted, David Wilcox, Andy Ewas, Chris Smith, Stevil, The crew at Landry's in Norwood, Matt Myette, Jerry Chabot and all you cross freaks out there in the NECX...
