Mountain KhakisÂ®, a premier outdoor-lifestyle apparel brand â€œBuilt for the Mountain Lifeâ€, proudly announces their title sponsorship of the 2010 GamJams Cat 3 Cup bicycle racing series.
Some series have a leader’s jersey. The GamJams Cup has leader’s khakisâ€¦ Mountain KhakisÂ®.
Roadies like Mountain KhakisÂ®. They also like fast bikes and fast coffee. We could go on, but best not. So how does a â€˜hips down’ apparel brand based in Jackson Hole, WY – with roots in the outdoor industry â€“ get so much love from the road cycling community?
There are, of course, several reasons. Paramount among them is the fact that Mountain KhakisÂ® is a brand that resonates to the core enthusiast â€“ whatever the passion. Cult-like in their fanaticism, roadies are an Ã¼ber-athletic faction that eat, sleep and drink their sport. They are anything but spectators. Their lifestyle involves a multitude of cross-training endeavors, only to support a faster time on the clock, measured in minutia. And they know a core, authentic product with bomber quality when they see it. Enter Mountain KhakisÂ®.
So when the folks at GamJams, the Mid-Atlantic amateur cycling network portal and go-to site for over 10,000 racing enthusiasts, asked MK if they would climb aboard for the 2010 Cat 3 Cup series, they agreed with fervor.
According to Mike May, GamJams Publisher & Leading Man, â€œWhen we’re not on our bikes and we need to cover our smooth and expertly chiseled gams, best to do it in pants that – like us – would rather be outside. Mountain KhakisÂ® fit the bill perfectly. I’m thrilled they’re supporting the GamJams Cat 3 Cup, and helping us figure out who wears the pants in amateur cycling.â€
The series’ event leader will receive a new pair of Mountain KhakisÂ® pants or shorts after each event. Winners of each race in the series will receive a Mountain KhakisÂ® cap, belt or other accessory (in addition to whatever the purse is at that race). And the individual series winner takes home a $200 Mountain KhakisÂ® gift card. That’s a lot of khakis on the course. But wait â€“ there’s more! The GamJams Series’ winning team will pedal away with $1000! Thank goodness they’ll have all of those pockets in their MK’s to stuff cash intoâ€¦

Since 2007, GamJams.net has been making amateur bicycle racers feel like pros, covering local races and the amateur cyclist lifestyle through dedicated reports, course analysis, featured photos, exposes, unique coaching tips, interviews with local heroes and guest commentaries. GamJams.net is the hub of the GamJams Network, which knits together over 100 racers’ blogs, team websites and regional cycling hubs, ostensibly to allow advertisers one-stop access to competitive cyclists across the country, but mostly to give all of GamJams’ audience more cycling blogs to read. GamJams believes that the podium-as-media model is rapidly giving way to amateur racers who create their own media â€“ through blogs, photo galleries, tweets, videos and other forms of social interaction online, and that the logo soup found on most jerseys has no nutritional value. GamJams also finds bicycle racing to be a perfect metaphor for life, and gladly takes its turn in the wind. You can pull through at www.gamjams.net.
