DealerCamp, a bike industry trade show held at Deer Valley Resort, will open its doors to the public for the first time in its four year history on July 27, 2013. The event showcases the latest and greatest bicycles and gear from a variety of manufacturers to the nation’s bicycle dealers, hence the name DealerCamp.
DealerCamp Public Day is a chance for everyone to see some of this year’s and next year’s cycling gear. With bicycles, components, wheel manufacturers, accessories, apparel, protective gear, DealerCamp will have everything and certainly something for everyone. Demo bikes will likely be available to try from several manufacturers.
The event is free to the public and will be held all day at the Snowpark Lodge parking lot.
Additionally, the Ride 2 Recovery Honor Ride will leave from the expo. The ride (which requires an entry fee) has options of 20, 50, and 100 miles. The Honor ride is a self-paced, non-competitive cycling event that raises awareness and funds for Ride 2 Recovery, a nonprofit organization that helps injured veterans improve their health and wellness through individual and group cycling programs at military bases and VA locations around the country. For more information, see ride2recovery.com. There is no charge for injured veterans to participate. All are welcome.
DealerCamp is also host to the Raleigh Midsummer Nights Cyclocross, to be held on the July 25. With a purse of nearly $5,000, this event will attract cyclo-cross stars from Europe and America to Snow Park Lodge, Deer Valley Resort, in Park City, Utah. The event is free for spectators. In addition to professional races, there will be races for singlespeeders, cat 3-4 men and women, and industry. Racers can visit bikedealercamp.com for more information and to register. Races start at 4 pm, with the elite women off at 6:30 and the elite men at 7:30 pm.
“From the day we announced DealerCamp in late 2009 we have always had a public day in mind to further enrich the event. We felt the time was finally right to proceed and we are very excited about assembling a strong public day.” stated Lance Camisasca, Lifeboat Events’ president.
Camisasca continues “Deer Valley Resort remains one of the most grand riding experiences in the country and for a remarkable five years running, Deer Valley Resort is honored to be named the #1 ski resort in North America by the readers of SKI Magazine. Deer Valley Resort is proving to be a winning location for the bicycle industry.”
