2017 Best Racing Kit


After 10 days of hard battle and tons of votes, Orica-Scott's kit has been elected the best 2017 racing Kit. Congratulations!!!
This is just another trophy in 2017 for the team, which seems to have started the season in the best way.
Caleb Ewan has dominated every single sprint during the Tour Down Under and now everybody is curious to see him in action again in Europe.
Milano-Sanremo? Why not! In recent years it has been a race for Aussies and I think Caleb will be happy to continue the tradition.

Just a quick comment on the two worst kits of 2017: Bora-Hansgrohe's and Uae Abu Dhabi's.
There is nothing to say, the two kits are horrible but, while Sagan's vitories will comfort Bora-Hansgrohe, who will help UAE Abu Dhabi?

Neoprene Cycling Gloves (Bontrager Trek Factory Racing)


I've tested these gloves the 31st of  December, It was -4° C and at the end of my training my hands were boiling.
The Bontrager Trek Factory Racing gloves: 100% neoprene with a bit of silicon on fingers and palm are an incredible product, one of the best I've tested so far.
They are incredibly comfortable and easy to slip on and slip off.
The gloves present a little padding that makes them confortable even on cobblestones; the silicone part on fingers and palm allows you a better bike handling.
The gloves are completely waterproof, even in the worst weather conditions.

Sir Bradley Marc Wiggins: The End


"I have been lucky enough to live a dream and fulfil my childhood aspiration of making a living and a career out of the sport I fell in love with at the age of 12. I've met my idols and ridden with and alongside the best for 20 years. I have worked with the world’s best coaches and managers who I will always be grateful to for their support.
What will stick with me forever is the support and love from the public though thick and thin, all as a result of riding a pushbike for a living. 2012 blew my mind and was a gas. Cycling has given me everything and I couldn't have done it without the support of my wonderful wife Cath and our amazing kids.
2016 is the end of the road for this chapter, onwards and upwards, "feet on the ground, head in the clouds" kids from Kilburn don't win Olympic Golds and Tour de Frances'! They do now."

Great Climbs Around The World: Ghisallino

Ghisallino is a nice climb that leads you to one of the most iconic places of the Cyling World.
If you are a cycling fan and lover you can't miss this little trip to the Madonna del Ghisallo Sanctuary.
The climb starts in Asso, Lombardy, Italy and after 9 Km with an average slope of 4% you reach the top of the hill of Ghisallo and you can breathe pure cycling.
On the top of the hill there is a little church where all the bikes and signed jerseys that the cycling champions have donated to the church are collected.
You can start having a look at the bike of Coppi, then the bike of Merckx, the bike of Pantani (just to mention three legends) and so on.
On the top of the hill there is also a cycling museum but the living museum and the iconic place is the little church mentioned above.
The hill is climbed every year during Il Lombardia but It is climbed on the other side, the harder one, the proper Ghisallo, that will be analyzed in a different topic.
Click here for a techinical analysis of the climb and here to join the club on Strava of this blog and compare your performances with the other readers.
Have a nice ride!
