Alise Post has continued her announcement of new sponsors that will be supporting her for 2017. We learned about her joining forces with GW as her official frame sponsor, but the jury was still out on all the other parts and pieces.
As of today, Post will make her debut as one of the first Promax supported rider since Quality Bike Products (QBP) purchased the brand at the end of last year. Here is their official statement…
“Promax Components, which is distributed globally by Quality Bicycle Products, is proud to announce the recent signing of Alise Post as a sponsored rider for 2017 and beyond. Post is a 2016 Olympic silver medalist, the reigning #1 USA BMX women's pro, and a multi-time national champion. Post has been carefully looking for the right sponsors and, as a Saint Cloud, Minnesota native, was eager to work with a local company. QBP's recent acquisition of global distribution of Promax opened the door for Post's ongoing sponsorship.”
Dan Maier, Promax Brand Manager at QBP had this to say, “I'm thrilled to have worked out a sponsorship deal with Alise. She is an amazing athlete and a great role model for anyone involved with the sport. I'm excited to see what the future holds for her and for Promax.”
Alise will also join fellow Olympian Nic Long as part of the Promax Pro team. In the release Alise said, “I am really happy to announce partnership with Promax for the first time ever. For me, it's always about developing relationships and representing brands that truly support me and want to do more for the sport, so I'm grateful that they've acknowledged my successes and chosen me to be the face of their brand."
Alise is certainly off to a solid start and has garnered some top notch support to help her chase another USA BMX National Championship this year. For everything that Promax does not offer, Alise announced on her social media channels that she will equip her GW with BOX Components. Now that her team is in place, it is time to sit back and watch the season unfold to see if she can take another silver cup back home.
