“I’m so excited to be taking this journey with the Fuji family for the 2018-19 cx season,” said Jeremy Powers. “The team at Fuji believe in the riding and racing scene that I’m so passionate about. They’ve followed my career for many years and have been a dream to work with.
“I’m very much looking forward to working with such an iconic brand with deep history in our sport and showcasing these incredible bikes at the races and events we do this season and beyond.”
For the 2018-19 season, Powers has a full calendar of UCI races throughout North America that he’ll be attending including UCI Cyclocross World Cup races in Waterloo and Iowa City, GP Gloucester, and Northampton International Cyclocross.
