Hoopdriver Bicycles, gold sponsor

We're stoked to be working with Hoopdriver Bicycles on this tournament. They've sponsored our tournaments in the past, and for this one they're getting Brooks saddles laser-engraved for the podium prize table.

Hoopdriver is home to some top-notch mechanics and they'll be court-side to represent their shop with tools and a few commonly needed parts. Megs will be there all day Saturday at the tournament while Martin holds down the shop, and Martin will be there Sunday. Feel free to leave them tips!

But you should make it a point to stop by the store on Saturday when you're not playing, cause it's closed Friday for Canada Day, and Sunday and Monday. They're at 1073 College St, a two minute bike ride straight south from Dufferin Grove Park. Martin's got an incredible selection of parts from Brooks, Paul's, Velo Orange, Nitto, crammed into the display, and some vintage randonneurs hanging from up high.
