Triton Brewing, SILCA to Sponsor Shamrock Cycles Cyclocross Team

The Midwest’s Preeminent Amateur Cyclocross Team welcomes two new sponsors, announces an August new rider clinic and a charity auction at the end of the OVCX season

Triton Brewing, SILCA, and NixFrixShun Products will sponsor the Shamrock Cycles Cyclocross Team for the 2016/2017 season.

The infamous Shamrock Cycles tent has become the place to be during the Ohio Valley Cyclocross season, entertaining cycling fans and offering both mechanical support and hilarious heckles to opposing racers. This season at the tent, Triton Brewing will showcase a variety of their award-winning beer, including Deadeye Stout, HometownHero, and Railsplitter IPA, at each of the 13 OVCX races.

Shamrock will also be using the award-winning SILCA SuperPista pump to inflate their tires this year. SILCA and the team plan to auction a brand-new SuperPista at the end of the OVCX season, with proceeds going to the Midwest Devo youth development team.

NixFrixShun handlebar tape will wrap every bar on the Shamrock team while their amazing lube and grease will keep things spinning smoothly . 

For Shamrock Owner Tim O’Donnell was ecstatic over the new pairings.

“Partnering with fellow local businesses that happen to make great beer and incredible bicycle pumps is a perfect match for Shamrock Cycles,” O’Donnell said. “We are excited and honored to have both Triton and Silca on our jerseys this season.”

Previous team sponsors Sundance Salon Spa, Broad Ripple Windworks, the Rehn Company, and Creative Machine Concepts will continue to support Shamrock this season as well.

“Hand built in the mountains of Indiana,” Shamrock Cycles’ award-winning custom steel bicycles are highly sought after by riders and collectors around the world. The Cyclocross Team has been a mainstay in the OVCX series since 2009, winning fans across the Midwest and the nation for their fun antics as much as their racing ability.

Scott Baumer and Will Sherman will once again lead Team Shamrock, competing in the OVCX elite wave. O’Donnell, Janet Sherman, John Wheeler, Fred Iversen, Jimmie Foster and Robert Annis will also be competing in Shamrock’s distinctive green and orange kit this season, just a bit slower.

To celebrate the new partnership with Triton, Shamrock will be hosting a beginner’s skills clinic at the preseason kickoff party 6-9 p.m. Aug. 21 at Triton’s flagship Fort Ben location. Both kids and Cat 5 racers are invited to participate.

The team’s new jerseys will be officially unveiled at the pre-season party. A second, more Triton-focused jersey will be offered for pre-sale, featuring a more generous club-cut for the non-racers among us. Everyone pre-ordering jerseys will receive a 15 percent discount, as well as numerous kudos for their good taste.

About Triton Brewing:

Triton has been brewing Indianapolis’ best craft beer since 2011. Founded by Jon Lang and David Waldman, Triton has become famous among beer fanatics for their tasty creations such as Deadeye Stout and Railsplitter IPA. The beer is so popular, Triton expanded to a second location, Triton Tap, in Indianapolis’ popular Broad Ripple two years ago.

About Silca:

Silca believes in perfection, beauty, and true value. Founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi just outside of Milan, Italy, Silca was the world’s most groundbreaking bicycle-pump manufacturer for decades. In 2013, Claudio Sacchi, grandson of Felice, sold the company to former Zipp executive Joshua Poertner, who moved the company to Indianapolis, Indiana. In the years since, Silca has once again become synonymous with excellence, innovation, and beauty.

About NixFrixShun:

Offering lube, grease, handlebar tape as well as other various sundries, NFS has quietly become the go to lube for those that seek the “set it and forget it” approach to maintenance.  Shamrock is thrilled to have NFS product on our chains, in our bearings and on our bars.
