Boombotix Alley Cow Race Recap

No better way to get to the 10th Annual SF Bike Expo than an alleycat race. This last Saturday was no exception- as the weather was prime, the pavement was hot, and the riders were fueled with beverages ready to propel them. Kicking things off at the Boombotix HQ with iced coffee and breakfast bites, riders lined up at the iconic ledge starting around 11am. For some, it was their first race, for others, this was standard business. Regardless, the route over the hill to the cow palace led to some interesting route choices and lines, and ultimately, a winner who outfoxed them all. See photos:

Jason Clary State Bicycles x Boombotix Pro Models

Jason ClarySince Jason Clary’s recent victory at Red Bull Ride and Style, he has been in constant motion. He recently inked a new deal with State Bicycle Company landing him an all new race setup. To compliment the new look, we built Jason a custom Boombot REX for his training rides.

Don’t mind the spandex laden cyclist below. Clary doesn’t have the kind of physique for that. You’re more likely to find Jason riding topless without his teeth.

Jason has bounced around with bike sponsors in search of a partnership that really extended his brand in the right way. It’s never really been an issue with equipment. Part of it has just been a constant struggle to manage the expectations between athlete and company. A number of our employees at Boombotix ride State Bicycles to work, so having a team rider shared between our brands is also a great thing. We’re stoked that he’s been with our bike team from the start and excited to see what he will be laying down on the pavement in upcoming years.

“In my heart, I’m a racer. Riding is my passion. Anything with wheels. As long as I’m on the bike my life works out right. Bottom line, I’m going to keep riding as long as I can.” Source: Wolfpack Hustle
