The SRAM Neutral Race Support (NRS) cars have once again taken to the road, but only after the all new custom graphics have been applied to each of eight beautiful Volvo XC-70’s. These rolling bike shops will provide neutral service to over 120 races across the United States, including the Amgen Tour of California, the SRAM Tour of the Gila, and the Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic Powered by SRAM.
The SRAM NRS program starts with a world-class staff that includes several of the nations premiere technicians. Butch Balzano, Jose Alcala, and Chad Contreras are the three mainstays. Each of their Volvo XC-70′s, capable of hauling up to six Specialized bikes, multiple sets of Zipp wheels, SRAM spare parts, as well as tools, pumps, wheels, coolers…a virtual rolling service course. When not on the road cars will find homes with Techs in Rhode Island, Illinois, Texas, California, and Virginia. Each car can expect to travel well over 50,000 miles.
