When Jeremy Dunn called me and said Rapha was planning to hold a Gentlemen’s Race in Boulder, I was, plainly, stoked. I’ve always followed the coverage of the other races and hoped we’d have the chance to share our characters and terrain here in Boulder with everyone, too.

And… Here we go!

Rapha: Davis Phinney Connie Carpenter-Phinney Jerseys and Documentary

“This film, produced by Rapha and Ben Ingham, is about two of America’s finest and most inspiring road racers, Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter-Phinney. For anyone who saw them race, Davis and Connie came to represent the best in American road racing, combining bold racing with uncompromising attitudes on and off the bike. Their careers saw them move from domination of domestic races to international and Olympic success…”

Rapha and Giro Launch Cross Shoes
AW14-Rapha-Cross-Shoe-Packaging-14

Wait a second, what’s this? That’s not a cross shoe?!

“Continuing the partnership in footwear with Giro, Rapha are launching our first cyclocross-specific shoe. Built on the EC90 carbon outsole used by Giro’s current range of MTB/Cross footwear, the upper of the shoe has been developed for the rigors of racing with a rubberized heel and toe-cap and aggressive outsole cleats for getting through the mud. Aesthetically clean and refined, the colors of Rapha Super Cross are woven into the shoe’s upper.”

Don’t miss out on the Rapha Cross Collection and see more of the actual shoes below!

With the 2014-15 cyclocross season ramping up and the House Industries / Richard Sachs show at Rapha NYC tomorrow, the guys at House just posted some exceptional photos of Brittlee Bowman’s team cross bike to up the ante.

My favorite part of this project: it’s a damn race bike! Not a showpiece. Well, tomorrow night it will be. Make sure you RSVP for the show at Rapha and see more details below.
