Although they are all the way over in Sacramento, you may have run across team TBB.cx. A rag-tag cyclocross gang supported by The Bicycle Business. Sporting NorCal’s own Emily Kachorek, and ex-pro roadie turned doctor Peter Knudsen, TBB.cx managed to take the Women A, Men A & Jr. overall Sacramento Cyclocross series titles last season.
Kachorek raced the this last season for Vanderkitten and the US National Team, but scaled back her late season racing in preparation for cyclocross. Kachorek, in conjunction with title sponsor Gheto, have put together a full cross schedule, and an impressive group of industry partners that includes: Rouse Bicycles, Vanderkitten, Oogie Wheels, Voler Apparel, Lazer Helmets, TRP Brakes, Osmo Nutrition, Brubar energy bars, Feedback Sports, Rocktape, Halo Headband, Ink Monkey, and Supacaz. Out of these conflagration of companies, #GHETOMOTO was born.
Gheto you ask? Take your pick of which acronym you like… Go Hard Every Time Out, Get Happy Every Time Out, G____ H____ Every Time Out (you can fill in the blanks). Gheto Labs as it is sometimes called, is all about indoctrinating more Californians into our amazing, non-UCI race NorCal cyclocross community (gheto.cx). Gheto is approaching this mission by building and loaning ragtag cross bikes to kids and cross newbies. Gheto puts on free non-traditional and virtual cycling events, selling affordable and creative clothing for the street and bike. By providing logistical, and race-day support to racers like Emily, Gheto enables elite athletes to compete successfully at the highest level. Gheto is all about having fun on two wheels; whether it is cross riding, exploring new roads on a fat bike, UCI racing, or just riding your townie to the bar.
Look for Emily Kachorek wearing her ridiculously bright Voler kits, and custom painted neon Rouse bikes, at the following events, and be sure to follow her on Twitter @EmilyKachorek / #GHETOMOTO / @ghetocx / gheto.cx
