Arizona– October 31st – Today VeloVie announced that they have created a partnership with Mix1 Racing for 2008. Mix1 Racing is a Boulder Colorado based, ACA-registered bike racing team. The team was established to support the growing demand for competitive amateur racing in Boulder County, and to help evolve excellent bicycle awareness and stewardship within the community.
Mix1 Racing is focused on men’s Category 3 racing and will compete primarily in the Rocky Mountain States of Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico. Lisa Fitch, former European Pro rider and certified USA cycling coach, is coaching the team.
“Working with the Boulder Velo Racing has been a pleasure for Velo Vie executive team,” said Homayoon Farsi of Velo Vie. “We are delighted with the team’s final selection of Velo Vie and Vitesse 300, one of the finest performance frames on the market.”
Mix1’s squad of 20+ riders hopes to replicate last year’s success in 2008 with podium finishes in road races, criteriums, hill climbs and time trials. The team will also undertake local outreach programs in the Boulder community, including support of the Davis Phinney Foundation. Races for 2008 will include Deer Trail, Koppenberg, Boulder Beer, Dead Dog Stage Race, Salida, and a slew of criteriums throughout the season.
“The cherry on top of our sponsorships is Velo Vie, who will be providing the Vitesse 300 framesets for the Elite Mix1 Masters Team,” said Marcel van Garderen, Mix1 Sponsor Coordinator and Director. “The people at Velo Vie have been a pleasure to work with; going above and beyond to make things work for us. The team consensus is that with the Velo Vie Vitesse 300 in the line up, Mix1 will be the envy of the peloton!”
