Kozo Shimano to join Spokesmen at Interbike

Shimano/YouTube comp shortlist revealed. A Mr Shimano joins judging panel.
Publish date:

The Shimano/YouTube competition had 134 entries by the close of play on August 30th. These 134 have now been whittled down to a shortlist of nine, viewable from here. The finalists will be judged at Interbike by Tour de France TV commentators Phil Liggett and Bob Roll.

The other judges are members of industry podcast The Spokesmen, including David Bernstein of the Fredcast, Tim 'Masiguy' Jackson, Donna Tocci of Kryptonite, BikeBiz editor Carlton Reid, and Tim Grahl of the Crooked Cog Network.

And now joining them at Interbike is Kozo Shimano of Shimano USA and Interbike's Rich Kelly.

The competition videos had to be short and had to be "great images of cycling that could make Joe and Joanna Public get out there and ride...for the sheer fun of cycling."

The competition winners get Shimano schwag, including top-end components. The competition is also sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Co. of the US, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale. A touching, pro-cycling video from New Belgium was used in the Shimano/YouTube competition video, seen here.

An announcement about the winning entries will be made from the first day of Interbike, September 26th.
