DTCC are pleased to announce that sixºnorth , the Belgian Brewers of Scotland, are the new sponsors for Alford CX 2015. The Stonehaven-based company, who operate bars in Aberdeen and Stonehaven as well as their brewery, have close links to the cycling world in NE Scotland.
The brewery name comes from the location of Stonehaven, six degrees north of Brussels. The love of Belgium runs deep, both in brewing and in cycling, and makes the company a great fit as a CX sponsor. Last April, head brewer Bob Lindsay took off on a tour of 13 of Belgium's finest breweries taking part in the Paris Roubaix sportive and the Liege-Bastogne-Liege 100.
As well as their own beers (including Wanderlust Wheat, Hop Classic, Chopper Stout and their Tripel), the sixºnorth bars feature a variety of guest beers, guest brewery collaborations and music events, so if you're up in Aberdeen for the race (or Stonehaven for the finish of Ride the North this weekend), why not nip in.
The sponsorship deal with DTCC will see sixºnorth provide podium prizes for the debut CX race at Alford's Grampian Transport Museum in October. Look out for their merchandise stand at the event, and please support them and the guys at sixºnorth by picking up some of their fine wares.
Entry for Alford CX 2015 is available here.
