Kevin Hulick will be sponsored by Vanilla Bicycles for the 2006 cyclocross season. Hulick, who won the “A” category in the prestigious Cross Crusade series last year, will join accomplished racers Shannon Skerritt, Molly Cameron, and Rhonda Mazza aboard a swanky new Vanilla cross bike this fall.

Hulick, who went to school and raced bikes at Chico State University in California, now splits his time between Corvallis and Portland. He’s “pretty excited to be riding bikes built by Sacha,” and who wouldn’t be?

Sacha White, the former Portland bike messenger behind the southeast Portland based company, has become one of the most sought after custom bike builders in the world.

I raced with Hulick in California in my collegiate road racing days in the ’90s and he was fast then too. He’s a great addition to the squad and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more Vanillas than ever on cross podiums this season.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive. That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. If you see an inconsiderate or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan and Michael

  • […] Before breaking off into groups to begin the clinic, I bumped into an old friend, Kevin Hulick. As reported back in April, Kevin is the newest addition to the Vanilla Bicycles Cross Team and tonight was the first ride on his fine new rig (hence the smile). […]
