There’s no denying the success of the recent UCI Worlds in Richmond, Virginia both in regards to the host city itself and the overall race. What an ending! For those looking for a more in-depth phototorial on the race, head over to Rapha for one of the best recaps I’ve seen…

From 2010 ’til now, Austin has been the homebase for the Radavist. In that time a lot has changed both on this website and in the city itself. Austin has grown. I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s outgrown itself however, it’s just opened up, unveiling new layers of idiosyncrasies.

Melbourne is a special place for me, with its unique riding and exceptional local cyclists. Recently, the Vanilla Workshop and Speedvagen took to the road, er air, to hop Down Under for an Australian Fit Tour in Sydney and Melbourne.
