As correspondents, artists, journalists and publishers both inside the in the field and out, we have special needs. #microsponsors are those brands and products that help to meet our ever-evolving, ever-changing, ever-transmogrifying needs.
Please buy products from these people, they support us. We endorse them.
Head / Mental Acuity – Stumptown Coffee: We hold Stumptown Coffee accountable for our fringe hour brain fitness. Their vibrant caffeinated beverages keep our lights on in the dead of night; their elixirs electrify us throughout the insipid early mornings. If you hope to achieve anything remotely close to what MFS has, you will drink Stumptown Coffee.
Body / Future-Sartorial Garb – Outlier: MFS understands the future, we GET IT, and therefore we wear clothes that are prepared for the inevitability of the next outcome. Looking good is not a secret, it’s Outlier.
Camera Clothes / Photographer Specific Ute Vests and Luggage – Billingham: Photographers know that it isn’t the camera, the lens, or even the end result that sets true professionals apart from the pretenders, it’s their camera luggage. For MFS the only choice for camera luggage is Billingham—for those in the in, this is an obvs.
Crowd Appeasement/Chiller Containment – Danner Boots: Manual for Speed is constantly being put in a position where we need to quell the fervor of our clambering fans and ease the disquietude of all the world’s hopeful #chillers.

Feet / Foot Aware – Nike FlyKnits: In 2015 we would like to make Nike FlyKnits our official footwear sponsor, on account of they are hella tight, hella light, and fantastically functional for all orders of business.
Water / Effervescent Hydration – Perrier: Water, plain water, is fine. And fine is fine if you are fine with fine, but fine doesn’t get you to the next level road racing spectacle coverage. Fine doesn’t get you an insider look at what makes the global cycling spectacle tick. What we’re getting at is that we are not fine with fine. We strive for excellence; we intend to tame the untamable. To do that, we won’t settle for plain water, we demand water with something more, because that’s what we intend to give you, something more.
