So one of the fun things that we get to do here is work with great racers. Every now and then – say when the Garmin-Chipotle team is in town, or one of the many bad-ass racers in Boulder needs something they stop by and grab some Hudz, or get some tech info, or just give me a hard time because it’s fun to do.

Today one of the most frighteningly talented women in US racing came by – Amy Dombroski. We sponsor her Webcor team, so when she was in need of some new brake hoods for her cross bike she had her superstar race mechanic ‘Double-D’ get in touch to see if we could take care of her. Of course.

If you don’t know Amy, she is a savage both on the road, and especially on a cross bike. She podiumed at TT nationals this year, raced all over the world, and then started cross season by picking up some big wins including Gloucester – cross world’s of the east coast. Oh, and she’s barely old enough to drink legally.

So watch for Amy cleaning up at a national ‘cross race in your neighborhood with some of our new SoftGrip Hudz on her Sram-equipped Kona cross bike. They’re blue, and if I do say so myself, look the business.
