Champ-Sys/Tripleshot 2017 Kit-Fit Event Sunday, March 19, 3-7 pm, Oak Bay Rec, Bee Street

Tripleshot's Triple the Joy Event: Food, Drink and New Kit!

The good folks from Champ-Sys, led by co-founder Scott Kaylin, are coming to Victoria to showcase their 2017 clothing line for us. ChampSys has recently started dealing directly with Tripleshot, and become a key sponsor for the newly launched Tripleshot Performance as well as the youth Program. So here's your opportunity to meet the Champ-Sys team and for them to help you determine what kit you want/need.

Samples will be available so that you can check sizing in advance of our upcoming spring kit order. Fitting rooms with mirrors will be available. Will this be the year that you move up from club-cut to race-cut? ;-)

So drop in for snacks, a bevvie*, and endless discussion on the finer points of cycling kit. It's a cash bar, but there will be free finger food. Heck, if you get there early your kids can even swim (edit: not for free) (until 5 pm) while you nosh, drink, and discuss lycra.

The Tripleshot Management

*cash bar and full food service available if the hors d'oevres get you in the mood for more.

Oops, swimming isn't free, rates are below. Open swim until 5 though if you want to occupy others while you linger over performance chamois vs endurance. :)

Here are some guides to champsys clothing this year. But better to see them in person and ask questions. :)

Champsys is in the house today, 3-7 at oak bay rec, upstairs by the sportsview lounge. Swimming and gym open available to keep family occupied while you check out the gear.

This is a new jacket; stretch, breathable, water repellant, packable in a jersey pocket, and transparent so you can see jersey colours and race numbers through it. $80
