October 23, 2009, NEW YORK — What’s better than 10-speed? ONE SPEED! Kona Bicycles and NYC Velo have teamed up with StatenCX 2009 with a very special incentive to pre-register for the November 29 event. All riders pre-registered by Sunday November 15 will be entered to win a Kona Major One frameset and, if that wasn’t enough… any rider who pre-registers for the Singlespeed Open/Tandem Open will receive an additional entry for two chances to win.
The promoters of StatenCX asked a few riders about the contest:
“This contest is so PRO.” Kyle Peppo, Toga/Gotham GS, New York City
“I am stoked to learn that Kona has given a Major One frameset to the people at SICX. The chance to win one of these puppies would open up the possibility to experience a new level of “Cyclocross Pain”. Racing on the Kona Major One would be an experience of epic proportions that few can understand but all can enjoy.” – Craig “Lebarrier” Lebair, Philadelphia Ciclismo, Philadelphia
“You can never have enough ‘cross bikes, especially if they’re free! Adding another incentive to race StatenCX is great. It already had the most to offer last year with the food, genuine cyclocross weather, and a super fun and technical course. I plan on racing both the B race and the Singlespeed Open race, since the course seems like it would be such a good time on a singlespeed! I love cyclocross!” – Sam Fiorino, Danny’s Cycles, West Chester
“Nothing says Staten Island better than Wu-Tang, White Castle, and Kona Major One. I’m stoked to be part of injecting some Cross Crusade love into the NYCX scene.” -Patrick Wilder, Cyclepath Racing, Portland
To enter the drawing, pre-register on BikeReg!. All entries are eligible for the drawing, which will be held after the Singlespeed Open event.
StatenCX’s 2008 event was the first cyclocross race in NYC in nearly a decade and featured Belgian waffles, courtesy of Wafels & Dinges, celebrity chef Matt Sigel of Hell’s Kitchen manning the BBQ, and plenty of food and drink from Wellshire Farms, Schaller & Weber, and Honest Tea Beverages.
