Subject: [CR] Criterium Racing For Steel Bikes

In case you might have missed it, a new racing series has begun featuring c lassic steel frame bicycles only.  We believe it is the first of its kind in recent years.  The first event is to held during the Athens Twilight Criterium in Athens, GA.  This was voted the #1 criterium in the country by Outside Magazine.  If anyone would be interested in participating, by either racing or just displaying their bike, please go to our website at ww w.MenofSteelRacing.com  The complete description of the event is there by linking to http://www.truesport.com.

Here is just one article that has been done about the idea.  http://www.b ikeradar.com/news/article/men-of-steel-racing-club-going-national-20803

The season will end with a bang with the Men of Steel National Championship s to be held at Mandalay Bay during Interbike.  Imagine 100 of the best t he best current and former racers on KOF and CR steel bikes.  It will be seen we have not had for over 20+ years. 

Our goal is to provide a racing platform to get these classic bikes back on the race course, and so far the response has been amazing.  We hope you all enjoy the site and what we are trying to do.  If you do, please tell your friends about us. 

Please feel free to call or email us if you have any questions.
