Kudos to fourth year sponsor Maxxis for their tireless support (pun intended) and bottomless supply of all things rubber. Among their many contributions as a silver level partner, Maxxis also provides heaps of schwag in the form of tires and tubes with distinctive orange markings that is often doled out to volunteers in recognition of their service, to student-athletes for on-time registration, and for other random acts of kindness.
Boasting a high quality product line that is diverse and deep, Maxxis is also associated with teams and athletes whose loyalty spans decades. Among those are NICA Booster Club member and multi-time Canadian Cross-country & Cyclo-cross National Champ Geoff Kabush, and the United Health Care Pro Road Cycling Team (long past the decade mark of sponsorship!). If it’s good enough for the pros, it’s good enough for NICA student-athletes!
Maxxis provides high quality rubber at prices that make sport participation more accessible. And rumor has it, you’ll soon be able to purchase a Maxxis-NICA branded tire! Thank you Maxxis for the past four years of traction as we go Coast-to-Coast by 2020.
NICA welcomes Athletic Event Supply!
Athletic Event Supply (AES), based out of Farmington, Utah, is one of NICA’s newest 2014 sponsors. NICA recently met up AES CEO and Utah League coach, Dan Stewart who, like many entrepreneurs, established his business to solve a problem he was facing. He said, “As a race promoter, I was frustrated by the lack of unified sourcing and one stop shopping for events. It had to be simpler.”
Dan founded AES with both convenience and great prices for teams, sponsors, promoters, and anyone planning an event. NICA affiliates (thats you!), receive even better pricing than Dan’s best friends. Why? Because NICA affiliates are making mountain biking a high school sport!
As the supplier of essential supplies for our high school mountain bike races, their commitment to getting more kids on bikes, reinforcing positive lifestyles and creating opportunities for personal growth is evidenced through their bronze level sponsorship. Thank you Athletic Event Supply for joining the high school mountain bike revolution!
