Team CMT Gear

This is the design for the triathlon top.  Also working on designs for shorts and a tri suit.

This is the design for the short sleeve bike jersey. Also requested a design for bike gloved, sleeveless jersey, long sleeve jersey and arm warmers.

I  have asked the company to set up an on-line Team CMT store. I hope to offer hoodies, baseball caps, polo shirts, warm-up jackets and other items. I will let everyone know once the store is set up.

The team members doing triathlons and cycling events have been asking for event specific gear. Sorry it took me so long, but I finally have the ball rolling.

I have also requeted a quote on running singlets and shorts. If you are like me, you need more than one singlet.

Visit Champion systems and if there are items you see you would like me to add let me know.  Go to their Charity section of their on line store and you can see items other teams have chosen. That is where I hope to have us listed.
