I’d say this is one of the few times a bicycle-mounted camera delivers some excitement. Check out team BMC’s inside look at the Tour of Flanders.
Bell Helmets continue their Spring Classics videos with probably one of the most famous: the Tour of Flanders. In this video, team LottoNL-Jumbo shares with us their thoughts on this race, just days before its kick off on April 5th.
Check out a bit more behind this iconic race, at Bell.
Mo, or “Meaux”, Bruno Roy was at the 2015 Cyclocross Nationals here in Austin, where I shot her Mudhoney Pro cross bike. Then, with all the madness that ensued after the postponement of the main event, I totally blanked on posting the photos.
That is until the news yesterday that Mo had retired from professional cyclocross racing. While she won’t be hanging up cross racing all together, her days of UCI events have come to a close. Now, I’ve only met Mo once but she seems like the type of person who is riding bikes for the love of the sport. Her and her husband Matt were so kind and generous, I can’t see her disappearing from their local New England scene. What I’m saying is, I doubt this is the last time you’ll be seeing this bike!
During the rapidly-approaching Spring Classics, Bell Helmets is running a give-away for each of eight races, starting with Milan San Remo and team LottoNL-Jumbo. Head over to Bell to find out how you can enter for the give-away, featuring Bell products and team gear.
Our friends at Manual for Speed have been spending months upon months working on a new website and all their hard work has paid off. The first post takes us to 2015 Paris-Nice for their anthropological cataloging of cultural phenoms. Or something. Head over to Manual for Speed for more!
To support Sir Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky this year at 2015 Paris-Nice, Jaguar just unveiled a CdM stripe-adorned F-Type Coupé. I don’t know anything about cars but this seems like a rather balleur statement for the brand. Check out more below.
When Manual for Speed does something, they go above and beyond. Now, above what or beyond where is open to interpretation, but one thing’s for sure: these cats are wild. Wild, but chill.. and that’s exactly what Kasual Klub is all about. Chilling. Well, that and this:
“What is Kasual Klub? It’s a Vibe, a Crü, and a Collection of Clothes For Sale. And a Klub, obvs. There are only two ways to get in the Klub: 1) Turn yourself into an exceptionally gifted World Class Human Athlete (or equivalent), or 2) buy a Kasual Klub clothing item now available for sale in our “store”. That’s it; one way is really fucking hard, and pretty much impossible, the other way means you just have to buy a cotton t-shirt or some insane technical socks.”
See some more Kasual Klub flicks below and check the lineup at Manual for Speed.
… well, I have no words. Two rap battle teams, headed by Sven Nys on one side and Matthieu van der Poel, on the other compete against each other. Like a sprint at the finish line, who will win this one?
Bradley Wiggins is without a doubt, one of the most iconic modern cyclists and his sense of style is only exceeded by his athletic prowess on a bicycle. As one of the most important figures in British cycling, this Olympian and Tour de France winner is partnering with Rapha on a Wiggins-designed team kit. As the first step on this collaboration, Rapha will provide a full kit for the Wiggins team for their forthcoming season as they prepare for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Personally, I can’t think of a better partnering for Rapha and am excited to see what is to come.
Expect more information as events warrant.

The first hint I was approaching Eastern Europe, was receiving a bath-size wet nap prior to takeoff on Air Dolomiti flight 1692 from Munich to Prague. Anyone who has ever whiffed a Bulgarian armpit or endured 34 rows of heavy built men who disavow deodorant can deduce how these would come in handy on a small airplane. As the pilot squeezed the throttle, our Embraer 195 headed east through light snow…
