Thousands of you entered, with most of you taking advantage of multiple entry opportunities, but only one could win our contest for the RXC Pro Disc carbon ’cross frame.
That lucky randomly drawn winner is…Rick Hickman out of Tampa, Florida.
Rick looks like exactly the type of racer Raleigh was looking to give a hand-up to. He just finished his first-ever season racing ’cross and is hooked for life, and the new Raleigh frameset will be replacing an eBay used bike he picked up to try the sport. Quite an upgrade for the new racer.
Raleigh’s hand-ups have a pretty good track record…2012 Midsummer Nights racer winner Allen Krughoff went from contract winner to racing the World Championships, and Nicole Duke and Russell Stevenson have done quite well since winning their own Raleigh hand-ups.
A little about our winner, Rick Hickman:
- Hometown: Tampa
- Occupation: Webmaster for Sheriff’s Office
- What got him to try cyclocross: Saw a local race at the park near my house last year and immediately thought I have to do that!
- Racing experience: Five months
- First ride on the Raleigh will be: Probably the Tampa Riverfront ’cross course. It’s where I do most of my ’cross training. I will be excited to see the difference in my lap times with the upgraded ride.
Congrats to Rick, and we can’t wait to see what he does with the new rig next season!
About the contest:
Last week, the Kent, Washington-based company teamed up with Cyclocross Magazine to give one lucky reader a RXC Pro Disc carbon cyclocross frameset, valued at $2200—the very same cyclocross frameset (with an ENVE disc fork) that USA Worlds Team member Allen Krughoff and his Raleigh-Clement teammates raced this season. The carbon disc brake frameset is ready for any cyclocross action you can throw its way, from local grassroots racing to World Cups and World Championships.
