Details about Pre-Ordering Team Z Race Kits (and other store info)

Team Z Fit Kit at RNR, Pre-orders for Team Z Jersey’s/other

Race season will be here before you know it. It’s time to start thinking about what Team Z race gear you need! New Zs ”“ not everyone races in the performance gear. Many people use the tri shorts but ride/run in the green running shirt. Remember ”“ these are things you can wear/use after you leave the team as well. So think of them as just a new set of workout clothes. Nothing is required, but I do honestly believe that at a minimum you will want to have the green shirt as well as maybe a hat or something. Everyone wants to feel a part of the team. J

It takes 8 weeks to get a jersey from a pre-order from Pearl Izumi. So if we submit  by End of January (we will), we should have them by April 1 and we start racing in April.  

  1. Take a look at what items are in the sale section, you never know what you might find.
  2. To find out what Team Z race gear is in stock look in the performance gear section ”“ if the size you need is in stock it will display.
  3. If you look in the performance gear section and the size you need is not available then you will need to go to the Pre-order section and order the item.

Don’t know what size? This is very important:

* At Fast Track you will find a men’s and women’s Team Z fit kit. A fit kit contains every size available of the performance gear. This ensures you purchase or order the correct size. The main reason we pre-order is that we can’t afford to buy and stock inventory like a retail store. It would cost us several (many) thousands of dollars to stock 5-6 jerseys of each size for men and women. Then you have everything else!

  1. When you pre-order an item and it is not the correct size you want to return it and ask for a refund.
  2. This directly costs us the price of your jersey until someone else buys it.
  3. That refund does not come from Pearl Izummi ”“ it comes from our pocket.
  4. Please try your best to order the correct size. Ask your mentor, and haul tail to Fast Track (we will be there for clinics and things too).
  5. Let me know if you have questions AFTER you try on the gear.

Delivery of items purchased/ordered:

When you order an in-stock item you have two options for receiving the item. You can have it shipped to your address or you can pick it up at fast track.

Patti (wrote this email and manages our store) drops off orders at fast track once a week. When you are checking out and paying for your item you can select the option you prefer.

It takes 8 weeks for the pre-order to arrive once it is placed with Pearl Izumi. The plan is to submit the pre-order items by the end of February. GET YOUR ORDER IN NOW PLEASE! This will mean an early May arrival date. Pearl Izumi minimum order is 6. This means 6 men’s tri tops, 6 women’s tri shorts, 6 women’s bike jersey, etc. When the items arrive, we will let everyone know and run through the “mail” vs. “pickup” process.

Please take a look at the online store and order what you need. I will send out reminders before the end of February so you do not miss out.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. You can reach the lady in charge –
