The official sponsor of the ELITE WOMEN and B-WOMEN's events is Sheila Moon, fabricators of quality, American made cycling apparel.  Sheila is no stranger to cyclocross and is an accomplished racer herself!  In blending fashion with functionality, Sheila Moon is top notch apparel, designed specifically for women.

Pre-Registration for the race ends on September 6; t-shirt pre-orders end on 9/1.  So in other words, help me out by registering early (saves you time at registration) and buy a shirt while you still can!

Veloshine PRIMES!

Of the many things that the IthacaGP started off in the Michigan 'cross scene, start primes is one crowd favorite.  This year, thanks to our friends at Veloshine, each category will be competing for a package of bike wipes!
From the Veloshine website:

VeloShine Wipes are the premier cleaning product for eco-conscious cyclists who recognize the importance of maintaining a clean bike in an environmentally friendly way.  VeloShine is the only multifunctional wipe of its kind; specifically designed for cyclists to use on and off of the bike!

VeloShine Wipes provide a convenient, safe, and effective method for cleaning all of your cycling needs; from high-end bikes, helmets & shoes to your hands and face, VeloShine is the perfect product for any cyclist.

VeloShine is eco-friendly & 100% Biodegradable.   Additionally, VeloShine was developed from the outset to be a hypoallergenic product.  Why hypoallergenic?  Naturally, for cyclists to use VeloShine to wipe off their face, arms, and legs after every ride/race!  To freshen up before they are able to hit the showers.   Cycling clubs and teams love VeloShine precisely because of its multiple uses.

Each VeloShine package contains 18 extra large 8” x 11”, thick 100 GSM, which are 100% American made and packaged.  VeloShine is not a degreaser. Degreasers contain harsh chemicals and solvents capable of breaking down grease and tar… so degreasers can also remove the glossy finish and paint on your bike frame. Cyclists who use VeloShine wipes to clean their bike after every ride, lessen or eliminate altogether the need to use degreasers.VeloShine ® is a registered trademark of VeloWipes, Inc. VeloShine is made in the USA!
