Spotlight on Sponsors: Soma
Soma is a San Francisco-based maker and importer of bicycle parts. They are most known for their selection of frames - the star of their line up being the Soma Rush, a fixed gear frameset. Browsing the other models one gets the sense of a varied set of hobbies: there are dirtjumping frames, touring frames, cross, hardtails, and even a mixte (!). They also stock the Pake frame, which is a "track frame" with some comfortable upgrades: water bottle bosses (because we need to stay hydrated!), brake holes (because we often need to stop!), and Tange tubing (because we like when costs are lower!) make for a supremely versatile ride that will not break the bank. Soma and Pake have donated a wonderful prize to this year's race - a one-off Soma Rush frameset with a sleek rainbow tie-dye colorway! They also threw in some stylish caps!
