NEBC is proud to renew its teaming agreement bringing the Speed Merchant Aero Research and Testing (SMART) Low Speed Wind Tunnel (LSWT) on as title sponsor for the 2016 NEBC Charlie Baker Time Trial (CBTT) Series.
The Speed Merchant Aero Wind Tunnel Test Labs (www.speedmerchantaero.com), now in its 6th year of operation, is a state of the art Aerodynamics Testing Facility designed with the needs of the Competitive Cyclist and Triathlete in mind. It is founded and operated by a group of Engineers and Scientists who just so happen to also be competitive cyclists themselves. Besides the scientifically accurate measurements of aero drag numbers, their experience as cyclists allows the tunnel’s clients access to a world of knowledge, experience, and advice that can prove invaluable to Road Cyclists and Triathletes looking to improve their position on the bike and to get faster whether racing on the Road, in Time Trials, or in Triathlons.
The SMART LSWT sponsorship of the 2016 NEBC CBTT comes with a great deal of benefit to all CBTT competitors. For every race entered ($5 for NEBC members, $10 for non-NEBC), each rider gets a $25 discount off testing services at the Speed Merchant Aero Wind Tunnel. The discount is cumulative and a rider can earn as much as $100 off the first hour of Wind Tunnel Testing and an additional $100 off the second consecutive hour of a single test session at the SMART LSWT. That’s right, for no more than 8 entries in the CBTT TT series for $80 or less; you can save $200 off a 2 hour test session. A CBTT Racer can also earn credits up to $100 total to use for the Expert Fitting Services for TT/Tri Bike setups. For those certain to “Learn to Fly with Speed Merchant Aero”, you essentially get your Charlie Baker TT race entries for free and even get money back to learn how to get seriously fast. Between NEBC, Speed Merchant and You, that’s one great partnership.
So Get SMART and Get Faster at the 2016 NEBC Charlie Baker TT Series!!!
