Summer: The time of year where I start thinking about and longing for cold rain, slick mud and the smell of glue and wet grass.  The time has come release a new kit and to adopt a new name for this (non)team.  I learned a lot last year procuring skinsuits and kits for aspiring cyclocross racers all over the world.  This year, I've teamed up with Sommerville Sports to handle the entire ordering process.  For you, this means no more messing with payments, less time waiting for responses from me and faster delivery of the gear.  For me, this means less record keeping and sorting and shipping orders.  I found Sommerville Sports when they started sponsoring Jonathan Page, one of my all time CX heroes. 

Together, we designed a simple skinsuit and matching kit.   The pricing is straight forward and the gear looks awesome. The first order's cut off date is July 1st with gear expected by the end of August.


The new name stems from my love of CX racing, the lactic acid burns and blurry vision.  The Algea are the mythological spirits of pain and suffering, they are the daughters of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife. While we may not be as fast as the elite racers, we suffer just the same.
