Continental Mtb - Thank You!

A big thank you to Continental Tire for continuing to sponsor our team this year.  The team is going to be rocking the X-King 29x2.2 Protection tires for the early season as they grip on anything, and the Black Chili compound rolls extremely fast and sheds mud exceptionally well.  Not to mention the tires have great flat protection.

These tires worked awesome last year and were my go-to for just about every event.  I got a full season out of one set, with zero sidewall tears and only one flat (a 5 inch metal spike through the tire that I pulled out, sealed with a plug from Genuine Innovations and kept riding the tire for another 800 miles therafter).

2013 Kit Design

Kits should be arriving for the start of the 2013 season.  This year, Bart wanted to mix up the colors a bit in the Hincapie clothing kits for the team.  We're going with black and pink (maglia rosa pink - think Giro d'Italia color!) which will stand out from the crowd.

John - H2H Series - 3rd Overall

After a long season, John had the honor of finishing third overall in the Pro category in the 7-event Campmor H2H series.

He was recently honored at the season-ending awards banquet.

Congratulations John!

Season results are available here.
