MFS Spring Classics: Cobble Gobblers Cobble Goblin’ Cobble Goblins


The 2016 Manual for Speed campaign begins with the Spring Classics. If there is a better way to start off the year, we can’t think of one. And if we can’t think of one, that means one doesn’t exist. But what makes the Spring Classics so classic? Hmmm, could it be that the races travel through ancient and medieval European towns teeming with drunk David Guetta zombies? Is is it the unpredictable and vengeful weather conditions that torment the riders with flashes of sun, wind, rain, snow, and hail? Perhaps it’s the format of the races themselves, one-day winner-take-all affairs where winning means putting everything you have have on the line? Yes, yes, yes—and more. These races are the equivalent of knife fighting over an open grave or biting off your own tongue out of spite. These are scratching, clawing, blood, sweat, and tears affairs. You fail, your bike fails, the weather fails and it’s over, it’s an entire year before you get another chance. All this means that these races present the opportunity for a truly transformative experience, a platform for the uncanny and the beautiful. A true spectacle, and we’re here for the spectacle man!!!

This year we’ll be hitting the Tour des Flandres (Ronde van Vlaanderen), Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallone, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. That’s right, we’re covering all the big dogs, the Classic’s Classics, nah’mean? Of course we’re not just going to Europe to cover the races. We’re talking about Fan Clubs, MFS Cribz, Chillers, Barricade Butts, Barricade Pups, Casual Baguettes, and everything else you’ve come to expect from Manual for Speed and more, what exactly more is for the time being.
