Update: And the random winner is…Ryan McCary from Texas! As luck will have it, McCary might be the perfect winner, as he’s been curious about the sport and is excited to try it. Thanks to all who participated.
Over the years, Blue Competition Cycles’ cyclocross and gravel bikes have certainly gotten a bunch of press, whether it’s Jonathan Page’s National Championship-winning carbon Norcross ride, the Norcross AL when the company made its comeback, our preview of nearly the entire line at Sea Otter, our spotlight on the bright green, race-ready Di2-equipped Norcross EX, or our look at the company’s new Prosecco gravel bike.
Now you can be part of that press, as Blue Competition Cycles has offered up its versatile Norcross AL cyclocross bike as a prize for our latest giveaway. It’ll be an early Crossmas for a lucky reader.
What’s up for grabs?
Blue describes this versatile, value-oriented machine as:
“The Norcross AL is Blue’s all-purpose cyclocross and gravel machine. A sturdy, lightweight frame built from our custom 6061 double-butted aluminum means less less weight, but increased stiffness as you power around the course. The Norcross AL features internal cable routing, tapered head tube, disc brakes and PF30 bottom bracket.”
Our ride impressions have validated this, as we found the previous iteration to be “a stable, versatile ride that does well on the trail, cyclocross course, or gravel road.”
