Meet Our Sponsors

Gravitas is proud to represent some of the best brands in Northwest Arkansas and the bike industry. Without their support we couldn’t go racing.



Bike Rack Brewing Company got its name from the life style of the biking community. Just as children congregate at the bike rack before or after school, a bike rack symbolizes a meeting place. Fast forward to the current bike scene, after some hard (or friendly) competition on the trails, or a satisfying weekend work out, what better place to ride in for refreshing locally brewed thirst quenchers and some great conversation. Bike Rack Brewing Co. has two locations with the original at the Hub of Bentonville; right on the bike trail in the heart of the newly rezoned Arts District. Opened in May 2017, our second location is a part of the 8th Street Market; a community focused food hub where tenants and merchants serve each other as well as the larger community.

8th Street Market – 801 SE 8th Street, Bentonville, AR 479.319.6593 
Arts District – 410 SW A Street Bentonville, AR 479.268.6648

Welcome to Bentonville. Our towns are the heart of America. Some say that they’re gone, moved on, or simply faded away. But there’s a new American town on the map. It’s a town with a big heart and even bigger ambition. A town where modern progress meets rich history, where the arts meet innovation, and where companies meet communities. A town you can explore with all of your senses: from fresh air in the Ozarks, to fresh cuisine on your plate. That town is Bentonville, Arkansas. A town to visit, to see, to breathe, and to discover: “Now this is a great town.” Visit Bentonville — a new American town.
