Rutgers University-Raleigh Cycling Team presented by Kim’s Bike Shop Announces its 2010 Cyclocross Season Sponsors

For the 2010 cyclocross season, Rutgers-Raleigh p/b Kim’s Bike Shop has lined up an exciting cast of new and returning sponsors to support its run at a fifth consecutive Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference Championship.

New Sponsors:

Raleigh USA has stepped up as co-sponsor of the team. Raleigh lends both their name and 2011 Rx 1.0 cyclocross bikes to the team. The team will be riding a mix of custom painted and stock Rx 1.0s. All the bikes feature revamped tube shapes to maximize both stiffness for out-of-the-saddle efforts and comfort over the challenging terrain of the cyclocross course.

Kim’s Bike Shop is the Rutgers-Raleigh presenting sponsor for 2010. Located in New Brunswick, NJ, Kim’s is a full-service bike shop offering Raleigh, Specialized, Litespeed and more. The shop is managed by Rutgers Cycling alumnus and fitting expert David Kim who is also the genius behind many of the team’s perfectly-fit bicycles.

Revolution Wheelworks is a new sponsor for the 2010 season. Revolution makes available high-end racing tubulars for the cyclocross team in both carbon and alloy.

Gaerne USA will be providing extra-special G. Ara carbon mountain bike shoes in Team Red for members of Rutgers-Raleigh p/b Kim’s. The shoes feature a stiff carbon sole for pedaling efficiency and grippy tread for times when you have to get off the bike and run.

Challenge USA is the new tire sponsor for 2010. The team will be using the Challenge Grifo tubular, open tubular, and clincher for training and racing.

Princeton Psychological Consultants comes onboard for 2010 to offer sports psychology seminars for the team to ensure a positive and competitive mental attitude.

Returning Sponsors:

Verge Sport, a long-time sponsor of Rutgers Cycling, returns again to provide team kit for the 2010 season. The Team will be using Skinsuits, jerseys, and jackets from the Verge Elite Collection.

Cycle-Smart, another long-time sponsor, Adam Myerson and his coaches at Cycle-Smart continue to offer coaching, clinics, and wisdom (along with a bit of wit) to the members of Rutgers Cycling.

Gu Energy Products will be handling nutritional duties for the team before, during, and after training and racing. The team will be using Gu gels, Gu Brew, and Gu Chomps.

SRAM drivetrain components will grace many of the team bikes this fall. The innovative DoubleTap shifting has won over the cyclocross team for its consistency and durability in all conditions.

Ritchey Components will again handle cockpit controls for Rutgers. Tested season in and season out, Ritchey has proven to be some of the strongest, yet lightest handlebars, stems, and seatposts for the discipline of cyclocross.

Rudy Project will be keeping the mud and sun from our eyes with their line of stylish and innovative technical eyewear.
