"Making the Team"
March 15, 2010
Now in its third year of giving back to the endurance community, Team Evotri once again wants you to be part of the journey.
This spring, the team will be adding another teammate from the endurance sport community. Along with joining the family, the new recruit will be awarded a prize package from the Team Evotri sponsors: SRAM, Robbie Ventura’s Vision Quest Coaching, CycleOps Power, Zipp Speed Weaponry, 2XU, Headsweats, and new sponsor for the 2010 season, Specialized Bicycles!
Over the next few months the team and sponsors will be looking for an individual who embraces the spirit of triathlon: someone positive, enthusiastic, and dedicated to giving back to the community. Triathlon experience is not a deciding factor in choosing a winner, but passion is. Do you have what it takes to make the team?
Winners can rest assured their performance will undoubtedly be taken to the next level with the following prize package:
Trusted by world champions like Chris McCormack and Melanie McQuaid, the veteran racing professionals at Specialized will provide the winner with an unbelievable race package. Be prepared to light up the course with none other than the fiercely designed and wickedly fast Transition Pro Time Trial bike, technical helmet, and racing shoes.
Ever innovative CycleOps Power will provide the winner with a cutting edge Joule wireless Powertap SL+.
The endurance experts at Vision Quest Coaching will take the winner to the next level with a dynamic professional coaching package.
SRAM will outfit the Transition Pros with world-class Force drivetrains, engineered for top performance.
The velocity doctors at Zipp Speed Weaponry will provide 606 wheelsets, cranks and bars for the excellence in endurance sport trifecta.
The winner of the 2010 Team Evotri slot will receive a wetsuit and race gear from 2XU, the industry experts in state-of-the-art style.
To top off this incredible package, the 2010 team slot winner will also receive a collection of custom racing hats and visors from the industry leader in endurance accessories: Headsweats.
