B$Z: Raleigh Bicycles is Official Bike Sponsor of CLIF Bar CrossVegas

Raleigh Bicycles announces its sponsorship of 2015 CLIF Bar CrossVegas. It will be Raleigh’s third year as the official bike sponsor of the annual Las Vegas race, held under the lights following the first day of Interbike.

“CrossVegas is the biggest cyclocross race in the country and we’re excited to be a part of the over-the-top fun,” said Larry Pizzi, Raleigh’s senior VP of sales and marketing. “We love cyclocross at Raleigh, and being the official bike sponsor for this iconic race allows us to show our support for the unmatched spirit of ‘cross.”

For the first time, CLIF Bar CrossVegas will be in the global spotlight as it receives UCI World Cup designation for 2015. One of seven races worldwide, it’s the first outside Europe to be named a UCI World Cup cyclocross event.

Check out the Raleigh Ramp, the biggest feature of the race, directly in front of the VIP area. Also be on the lookout for a photo booth, beer, costumes, and Elvis singing Viva CrossVegas.
