Verge Renews Commitment to EuroCross Academy

December 19, 2023

NEW YORK, Dec 19, 2023 – ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE – Verge, the leader in innovative custom cycling apparel, proudly announces the continuation of its sponsorship of the EuroCross Academy, a junior cyclocross team comprising talented riders from the United States who will be competing in Belgium during the “holy week” of cyclocross from December 22 – January 1.

Known for their unwavering support of grassroots cycling and commitment to nurturing emerging talent, Verge is thrilled to renew its partnership with this exceptional junior cyclocross team. The team, composed of promising young athletes hailing from various regions in the USA, will showcase their skills and dedication in the highly competitive European cyclocross circuit.

Charlie Issendorf, Verge’s VP of Sales & Marketing, expressed the company’s enthusiasm for the continued sponsorship, saying, “At Verge, we believe in supporting the future of cycling, and that begins with investing in talented young riders. We are delighted to continue our partnership with the EuroCross Academy as they embark on their journey to make their mark in Europe. Our custom apparel is designed to provide them with the comfort, functionality, and style needed to excel in the demanding conditions of cyclocross racing.”

This is most evident in the victory at the prestigious Koppenbergcross last November by recent INEOS signing and junior wunderkind AJ August, who powered to the win in Verge apparel while riding for the EuroCross Academy. A clear demonstration that Verge clothing delivers the winning edge needed to conquer Europe’s iconic cyclocross events.

The EuroCross Academy is equally excited about the renewed partnership, expressing gratitude for the ongoing support from Verge. “As EuroCrossAcademy embarks on its 20th year of racing the toughest, grittiest kerstperiode cyclocross races in Europe, we continue to be incredibly grateful for our collaboration with Verge. Superior quality, extraordinary durability, like-minded passion and drive–all contribute to a super partnership.” said Geoff Proctor, founder of the EuroCrossAcademy .
