We’ve always worked hard to be a green company!

From the beginning we have always tried to be good to our planet by doing things like sourcing materials as close to home as possible, producing many of our products in our own warehouse, and having our pagacking produced with bio-degradable inks on paper with recycled content.

So, as Lizard Skins has grown we have worked to do even more to go green. We have replaced our 48 warehouse light fixtures from the traditional metal-halide lights to new high-efficiency florescent reducing our total electricity usage by 30%.

We implemented recycling programs diverting up to 66% of our solid waste, the program donates all cardboard recycling to a local specials needs program sponsored by the state.

We have redesigned our packaging to show the recycling emblem on all paper and plastic packaging. We use FSC paper for all the packaging we print in the USA since it is better for the environment. We also switched all our plastic packaging to #1 PET which can be recycled in more places worldwide than any other plastic.

We know there is always more that can be done which is why we have put together our future goals for going green.

  • Upgrade key manufacturing equipment to the most energy efficient products available on the market today.
  • We installed 39 solar panels reducing our energy consumption by 1/3.
  • Build or buy a “green” building.

Every day we continue to grow and we are making sure we are helping the environment while we do so.

Tour De France Stage 7

Cummins Wins After Masterclass Solo Performance

Read Story ...
Tour De France Stage 7

A dream 4th stage win for Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka at 2016 Le Tour de France

Steve Cummings won stage 7 of the Tour de France in typical Steve Cummings fashion, attacking from the original break of the day, to win solo in Lac de Payolle. Daryl Impey (Orica-BikeExchange) made it an even better day for African cycling as the South African finished in 2nd place. Daniel Navarro (Cofidis) was 3rd.

The 7th stage got off to a fast start with Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) attacking from kilometer zero. 10 other riders joined the Green Jersey contenders but the peloton weren’t content on letting Sagan and Cavendish get away. As soon as their group was caught, the counter attacks started and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka were fully switched on as Edvald Boasson Hagen made a new break with 3 others. Once again, a few kilometers down the road this break was also caught. The third escape would be the defining move of the day and 29 riders rode clear after 40km of racing, including Cummings.

Due to the constant attacking, nearly 50km were covered in the first hour and so when the break went clear, the peloton sat up for moment to regain composure which allowed the break to go 5 minutes clear. There were some big names in the escape group, with the yellow jersey race leader, Greg van Avermaet (BMC Racing) also present. With the stage ending after an ascent of the Col d’Aspin, the climbers in the breakaway like Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Navarro were definitely the favourites for the stage.

Cummings was not in favour of reaching the Aspin with this big group and so when Navarro, Antoine Duchesne (Direct Energie) and Matti Breschel (Tinkoff) got a 15 second gap on the lead group, Cummings rode across to the trio and injected some real pace into their attack. This caused a reaction in the chase and the big group split as 9 riders then tried to come across to the 4 leaders. The junction was just about to be made with 26km to go but before the chasers made contact, Cummings counter attacked and went solo.

The Col d’Aspin was a 12km category 1 climb that topped out 7km before the finish in Lac de Poyolle. The odds were stacked against Cummings as he was alone, being chased by 12 riders who were just 30 seconds behind him when the Aspin began. Everybody thought Nibali and Navarro would be able to bridge the gap to Cummings, and they tried, attacking on the very lowest slopes of the Aspin. Cummings held a consistent pace though and he was totally committed to the move.

In the end, Cummings even put time into his closest chasers on the Aspin. With the peloton still 4 minutes down on Cummings as he began the descent to the line, he just needed to stay upright to take an incredible victory. Cummings was able to do so with ease and the Brit was even able to savour the moment, crossing the line just more than a minute ahead of Impey. Another unbelievable day for our African Team, as we have now won 4 out of the first 7 stages, a feat we couldn’t have even dreamed of. Mark Cavendish retained the lead in Green Jersey points competition too, ensuring we had two riders on the stage podium today.

Steve Cummings – Rider:

That was sweet. After what has already happened this week, it is just fantastic to have won. Of all my victories, I think this has to be my best one. I wasn’t confident in that big group and putting pressure on them, I thought, was my best option. The Aspin is also a climb that suits my characteristics. The group behind was obviously on the limit so I just carried on, as you do, and I was able to win. I am really happy for the team and thankful that they believe me. I hope that people are really starting to get that we are racing to put kids on bikes with Qhubeka, it just makes everything that much more special for us and has put the team on a high.

334 kilometers


Heat and nerves were again the enemies of Nairo Quintana and Movistar Team in the 18th stage of the Vuelta.  The Colombian was well supported by Erviti, Sutherland and Rojas until the last three kilometers.

STATEMENTS:

Nairo Quintana:  " It was a nervous day with some wind, but resolved without problem, very attentive and the team backing me well. At this point of the race legs go well; There fatigue, it is end of season and feels everything we carry, but that 's normal. We hope to finish these days equally well and solve that challenge I have with myself, starting tomorrow in the time trial.

It gives me confidence the new Canyon Speedmax chrono and travel is not entirely flat; my opponents does not help them much about me a path where it costs more pick up the pace in places where you have steep slopes, curves ... It is still a weakness that we have before the match, but somewhat less. I hope not to have to rectify myself tomorrow, but I hope, sure, losing seconds, but do not lose minutes.

Every time we are closer: today another day saved, the stages are not dislike us-otherwise, are tours that come it very well and we will give everything for this jersey . "
