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.

Through the Valley and Over the Pass – Ryan Wilson
Hiking by moonlight

Through the Valley and Over the Pass
Photos and words by Ryan Wilson

On many occasions over the last couple of years I’ve gazed at the old, abandoned road that zig zags its way beyond 11k ft, above an already stout paved climb outside of Bishop, CA. Thousands of feet up these rugged slopes is a gateway to the John Muir Wilderness. I’ve made quick forays a little ways up it in the past (on bikes ill equipped for the condition of this particular road), but I knew that doing this thing right would require a bit of time and planning.

Bishop Bikes: Henry’s Road
HenrysRoad_02

Lugged, exceptional paint and a classic stance with modern technology propelling it onto banked roads. Henry’s road bike is a elegant example of the work Chris Bishop is capable of. See more at the Bishop Flickr!
