Several of the big names in cyclocross have indicated that if they win the National Championship in Kansas City this week and are selected for the World's Team, they would decline due to road season obligations. Well, we know one youthful competitor who isn't turning down invitations to Europe. And while he hasn't been selected to the World's team yet, he has been invited to Euro Cross Camp.
Chris Wallace just finished up the USGP Series as a Junior and is actively raising the funds for the camp, which is an important step towards a National Team slot. Chris will be selling some cool shirts and cowbells at Nationals, thanks to some help from his sponsors. Click on 'read more' for the press release.

Chamois Butt’r helps send Junior racer to Euro Cross Camp!
Paceline Products Donates Products to Help Fundraising Efforts
Pleasant Valley, Missouri (December 8, 2008) Chris Wallace, KCCX/Verge rider and one of the top contenders for the USGP Series for juniors 17-18 years of age, has been invited to attend the prestigious Euro Cross Training Camp in Belgium and Paceline Product’s Chamois Butt’r is helping him raise funds!
Paceline Products has generously donated Chamois Butt’r t-shirts and water bottles for Wallace to sell at USA Cycling National Cyclocross Championships this week in Kansas City. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to helping Wallace go to Belgium.
“We are very excited to be in the position to help support a local young rider! This is a very open ended donation, he can sell as many t-shirts and water bottles as he is motivated to sell and the money will go directly to his travel fund for Belgium! I hope he sells 300 of them!” Curt Shelman Paceline Products Operations Manager.
The National Cyclocross Championships are being held at Tiffany Springs Park in Kansas City December 11-14, 2008. During the event Wallace will be available in the Chamois Butt’r tent selling items for requested donations of $5 for t-shirts and $3 for water bottles.
