Spotlight on Sponsors: Super Champion
Tyler Lepore first opened Super Champion Bicycle Shop on Main Street, across from the police station, in Downtown Vancouver just two short years ago. Since then, they have been the catalyst for the track and fixed gear population of the area and provide not only an exceptional selection of hard to find track parts, but also a staff of mechanics that know every single type of bike around, from the cruiser to the highly specified track bike. They have a boutique atmosphere with very clean displays, and despite the neighborhood being a bit rough around the edges the people who staff the shop are as friendly and helpful as can be. The shop has a track racing team and has been placing nicely in many events in the British Columbia area, and they also sponsor the largest and best alleycats in town, not to mention helping the newly formed "fixed gear freestyle" crowd. Super Champion is a shop without pretense that caters to anyone with a passion for two wheels.
