#5thMallorca 2016

August 28, 2016 | By | No Comments

In the past few years Mallorca has become a mecca for cyclists across Europe. Times for Sa Calobra, Puig Major and Sóller are compared over coffee more than the big alpine classics and it’s easy to see why; smooth tarmac, long climbs, stunning scenery and sun – all just a couple of hours from London.

For me though, these were just rumours. It was my first visit to the island and time to see if it lived up to the hype…

Red Hook Crit London 2 by Reece Wood

Alex qualifying in Group 2

George and Reece qualifying in Group 1

As Alex, George and I line up alongside one another on the starting grid, there’s an air of apprehension amongst the riders; we’ve just witness an amazing ride from Dani King who obliterate the entire field in the women’s race, was the same thing about to go down here in the men’s event?

London Nocturne 2016 by Alex Blomeley – Photos by J.Baines

June 7, 2016 | By | No Comments

London Nocturne 2016 and from our perspective the best one yet. A few gripes about the organisation, the lack of pubs surrounding the course and what classes as a critical mechanical failure but on the whole a super successful day. We really liked the St.Pauls circuit it being narrow, technical and flat which makes for fast, heart poppingly strung out racing. The stuff we love and your friendly neighbourhood team in green were out en masse being strongly represented in the LeighDay, Mango Bikes and both the headline Elite races.

First of all, there was no running in this race, so this report should be nowhere near as sour as the last one on CX Nationals, so sorry if it disappoints.

5th Floor vs Giau

December 15, 2015 | By | No Comments

Fucking Giau. That’s what we re-named this climb.

As I said in #5thDolomites Part I, this was “the hardest physical thing I’ve done in my life” and I stand by that. I genuinely thought I was going to have to stop and get off my bike.

On the approach, we were met by Pasquale’s good friends and photographers Francesco Rachello and Eloise Mavian. Just weeks before they’d been at the Giro D’Italia so it was an honour to have them capture the pain of Fucking Giau.
