You may have already seen the SugarCRM girls riding around the Los Gatos, Cupertino and Bay Area and up through Napa Valley on the beautiful 2009 Blue RC8. Courtesy of Blue Competition Cycles and Cupertino Bike Shop, the women's elite team will be aboard these stunning machines for the entire 2009 season.
Resplendent in a red and black livery that closely matches the SugarCRM colors, these bikes are made of high modulus T700 carbon fibre and are light, stiff yet vertically compliant. (the frameset comes in at 1080g for a medium- all of the girls bikes will be sub 1kg!) Decked out with complete SRAM Force gruppo and Ksyrium Elite wheels, the RC8 is strong enough to withstand the finishing kick of Karla Kingsley and Mary-Ellen Ash, and light enough to dance up the mountains under the guidance of Kim Fong and Lindsay Myers.
Whats better, is that if you want to ride the exact same bike as used by the SugarCRM/ LGBRC Women's Elite Team, then you can check out Cupertino Bike Shop or any one of the dealers across the USA listed at http://www.rideblue.com/
