Thanks to Jeff Kerkove and the folks at Ergon USA I will be sponsored by this great company for the 2007 season.
I have been using Ergon grips 100% of the time since last spring. At last years 12 hours of Razorback, I had problems with hand blistering and numbness/fatigue in the wrists. When I got home, I put on a set of Ergon grips I had received at the 2005 TransIowa race. Wow, what a difference! No more blistering and much less fatigue in LONG races (12/24 hour and 100 milers). In fact, the Ergon grips helped me to a 3rd place at 2006 24 Hours of Big Bear in the solo category.
For 2007 Ergon is coming out with some great new products including lighter carbon fiber grips, gloves, saddles and a sweet looking hydration backback. Check out their new products here. I can't wait to try them out.
Other Ergon USA athletes for 2007 include the Sologoat, Harlon Price, Danielle Musto, Scott Cole among others.
