Rapha: the Longest Day Trailer

Here’s an interesting concept from Rapha:

“Rapha asked some of its riders to ride from sunrise to sunset across the reaches of the world, from France to the United States to Japan. One film crew flew from point to point to document the rides and learned that no matter where a long ride takes place there are common elements that unite.”

From the looks of this trailer, one of those common elements are insane landscapes. I can’t wait to see the full-length.

This is What Road Cycling Looks Like
Processed with VSCOcam with j2 preset

… in Central Texas, early-summer. I hope you all made use of the long days and open roads. We did a fun little century on Sunday, which took us by my favorite mid-ride dip. Josh had the right idea. Hopefully the trails are dry this week because I’ve got some shredding to do.

Riding in the Tetons with Mavic – Ryan Wilson
As far as bike paths go... this one is up there.

Riding in the Tetons with Mavic
Photos and words by Ryan Wilson

A couple weeks ago Mavic invited a group of journalists, athletes, and myself to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to put a few pieces from their revamped Ksyrium lineup through their paces in and around Grand Teton National Park. This was my first time in Wyoming and really my first time riding in the Rockies at all, so it goes without saying I was excited to see what the riding was like.

The 2015 Superenduro B-Road

I like the looks of this!

“Before the start no one had a clear idea of what would happen along those 110 km in the vineyards and hazelnut orchards of the Langhe territory. Many expectations and so many unknowns for the competitors, and everyone who was there.

The story telling of the first Superenduro B-Road was in the hands of the media crew, which moved fast on motorbike following the groups of competitors between asphalt and gravel sections, to document the race and spirit of this event.

Check the video report with the best shots from the race, good memories for someone and a little push for everybody else to don’t miss the second edition!”

A Quick Ride on Cannondale’s New Slate All-Road Suspension Road Bike
A Quick Ride on Cannondale's New Slate All-Road Suspension Road Bike

What do you do when an accomplished athlete backs you on a gamble and encourages you to do something different. Something that might change the face of “all-road” cycling forever? Or at least for a little while anyway…

The story of the bike goes back to March in 2014, when Tim Johnson and his wife Lyne were riding in Louisville along the bourbon trail. David from Cannondale put one of these bikes under Tim and watched the atavism take over. Tim hit every curb cut in sight, skidded around corners and sprinted like he was riding his EVO… Tim’s a cross racer through and through, so dirt and speed are his top priorities. Oh and fun. Having fun too. Right Tim?

Cannondale’s Got a Clean Slate

Here’s the full-length to that teaser I posted on Friday, featuring Cannondale’s new Slate suspension road bike on a ride from Park City to Ogden and Tim Johnson. Slate packs big 27.5 / 650b tires and the new Lefty Oliver road suspension. Watch it gobble up a 100 mile ride that hits smooth tarmac, gravel roads and into the back country of the Wasatch mountain range.
