Specialized Is Official Bike Sponsor;
Will Provide On-Site Team Support

For the third consecutive year, Specialized has signed on as the Official Bike Sponsor of the 2007 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships.

The high-caliber race is hosted Dec. 13-16 at Wyandotte County Park in Kansas City, Kan., on a two-mile course packed with sections of pavement, grass, dirt, sand pits and wooden barriers.

Specialized Riders Club is playing a huge part in the event with a VIP tent this year - one that pulls out the red carpet for all riders, not just the pros. The Specialized Factory Team trailer will be rolling up on Thursday and the club will set up shop with a warm-up tent and trainers, the ability to make last-minute repairs and a great space for riders to meet up both pre- and post-race.

“We are extremely proud to continue our affiliation with the 2007 National Championships," said Tara Moeller, Specialized USA Marketing Manager. "Becoming the Official Bicycle of Cyclocross Nationals allows Specialized the opportunity to support the continued growth and popularity of such an interesting sport. We are excited about sharing the experience of riding with spectators and athletes."

Founded in Morgan Hill, Calif., in 1974, Specialized Bicycles is a company filled with passionate cyclists who are devoted to creating the best bikes and equipment for every kind of rider. In 2005, Specialized introduced the Tricross (specifically designed for cyclocross racing) and never looked back.
