NAHBS 2015 to debut new award, ’cross race

Published October 28, 2014

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BRAIN) — For its 2015 edition in March, the North American Handmade Bicycle Show will introduce a new category, the Artisan Award, and a cyclocross race pitting framebuilders against one another.

The Artisan Award, one of more than 25 honors to be handed out at the 11th annual show, was created to recognize builders who fabricate as much of the bike as possible — or even the entire bike. This includes builders who make their own lugs or fittings, racks, fenders, lights and more. To be eligible, builders must provide photo or video documentation of the build and have it available to the public and the judges at the show.

The 2015 show will also mark the debut of the Framebuilders World Championships of ’Cross, which will be run alongside an additional race for others in the bike industry. Both events will be held at Eva Bandman Park and Cyclocross Venue, the site of the 2013 UCI Cyclocross World Championship. Details and registration information will be available soon, NAHBS stated.

NAHBS 2015 is set for March 6-8 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in downtown Louisville. For information on booth registration, exhibiting framebuilders, award categories, hotel reservations, sponsorship and more, visit the NAHBS website.
