SRAM has been a major sponsor of cyclocross in recent years, and this year is no different, continuing on as a major sponsor of the USGP for a sixth consecutive year. The premier cyclocross series here in the United States, the USGP consist of eight races, in four locations, spanning from September to December. The event features the nation’s top cyclocross talent, such as Katie Compton and Jeremy Powers.
SRAM recently caught up with fourteen of their top athletes and profiled their bikes. No, none of them are running hydraulic disc brakes… yet.
