ABUS is once again supporting cyclocross in 2015. Kicking off the season at the 2015 CLIF Bar CrossVegas on September 16th, the opening round of the UCI World Cup Cyclocross Series, ABUS returns to the race as both a race sponsor and as a presenting sponsor of the BikeValet.
"We sponsored the BikeValet last season and it was great. This year, with CrossVegas hosting the first UCI World Cup Cyclocross ever in the US, we're sure the interest in being at the race will be higher than ever." said ABUS Marketing Manager Joan Hanscom. "We're hoping that by offering a safe option for fans to park their bikes we can get more people to the race on two wheels. There is an excellent route to the venue via the bike lane on Twain Avenue. It takes riders all the way from The Strip to the race where they'll be able to leave their bikes in a staffed, secured bike parking area. To make it even more attractive - anybody checking their bike into the bike parking will automatically be entered into a drawing to win ABUS prizes throughout the evening."
Race Director Brook Watts commented, "I enjoy how ABUS stepped up last year to make bike commuting to CrossVegas worry free and secure. It was a big success and I'm really pleased that we've teamed up to offer it again this year."
Hanscom continued, "We are looking forward to a great party and a night of incredible competition under the lights. Everybody at ABUS has a healthy competitive streak, many of us race ourselves, and we are looking forward to cheering on some of the top riders in the world and from our own staff in the Wheelers & Dealers event."
