High Peaks Cyclery at the Kingston Rollerski Races

With all of the great things happening at the 7th Annual Kingston Rollerski Races, with all the continued support of our sponsors, probably the biggest news this year is the addition of High Peaks Cyclery to the event. For the first time, we've brought the largest rollerski event in the northeast with the largest and best nordic ski retailer in the northeast to work together at the same event. High Peaks will bring over $20,000 worth of merchandise to the Kingston Rollerski Races and offer the best prices of the season - Team prices. They will be featuring the products of our sponsors (Toko, V2, Alpina, Salomon, Polar, Accelerade, EarMitts, Nathan, One Way, and Rossignol); but, have other products available for sale.

Additionally, High Peaks will be using the Rollerski Race as an opportunity to offer significant discounts for that day only on stone grinding of skis. Regularly priced at $70. For one day only, Sunday, November 21st, they will be offering their stone grinding services for only $50. What could be easier than bringing your skis to the race and dropping them off with High Peaks? Arrangements will be made, at the time of drop off, for the return of the skis. Other services like refurbishing of skis and flex testing also will be available for very low, one day only prices.

Two additional new items need to be mentioned. We've always offered great, complimentary food and that will continue. However, we're also offering pulled pork boxed dinners of a pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw, baked beans and a soda for $10 each. So, have lunch at the race and bring dinner home with you. Lastly, we're holding three baskets for raffle with themes of "Skiing", "A Cold Winter Night" & "Holiday Fun". Each basket will have a value of over $150. The drawing will take place at the race.

Come early. All of us will be ready by 10am. Do some shopping at High Peaks. Take a chance on a raffle and pick up dinner. Great day for all. Hope to see everyone next Sunday and bring a friend.

Spnosors for the Kingston Rollerski Race

Quite a few companies have stepped up to help sponsor the 7th Annual Kingston Rollerski Races. Over the years, many corporations have been asked to help and these are the companies who have been there in the past and are there for this year's event.

So, when you choose your ski equipment and supplies, please remember who supported this rollerski race and please support them as much as possible.

Toko has been with us since the beginning and has been very generous in their contributions over the years.
Whether you're looking for wax supplies or ski clothing, think of Toko.

Alpina also has supported the races since year one. Consider them the next time you need a new pair of skis.

V2 is the final company that has been involved since the beginning. Their rollerskis are great and Kingston will be buying a new pair right after the rollerski races.

Salomon has been a sponsor of 5 of the 7 races we've held. Their boots and bindings are used by many and their skis are quickly becoming a favorite.

Accelerade has been the only ports drink company to become involved with the races. If you've tried their drinks and gels, you know how good they are. Last year, you received a packet of their drink powder and this year, you're getting one of their gels.

Polar is in its 3rd year and there's not much to say about them. Their equipment speaks for itself.

Nathan also is in its 3rd year and we're extremely happy to have them involved again. Their hydration systems are great and take a look at their reflecting vests. As safety becomes a larger and larger issues for rollerskiers, first we all adopted helmets and now we're looking at vests. Keep safe on the roads.

EarMitts is in its 2nd year of sponsorship and if you've ever tried to rollerski when it's below freezing, you know how difficult it is to keep any type of hat on your head and keep your ears warm. EarMitts are your solution. They're also great for biking.

New this year are One Way ski poles and their US distributor, Rossignol. We welcome them with great appreciation for their support.

Please support these companies when you're buying new equipment.

See you on the 21st.
