Breathtaking landscapes, wild animals, curvy and remote roads…Veronica and Leonardo from Life in Travel have been dreaming all of this since they started thinking their trip to South Africa. 2 months, from October 25th to December 31st. Stratting from Cape Town and arriving in Johannesburg: in the middle 3.000 km by bike, a L shaped route to connect the two cities with HoBootleg Geo, designed for offroad adventures, the GEO was developed and tested in the harsh desert of Iran in the Iranian Silk Road Ultratrail 2016 race.

Season Is Over

By | News | No Comments

Saturday October 1st was the Red Hook Crit Milano day. Bovisa is the last truly urban course, perfect for a proper Finale. It brings you back to the fixed gear roots, racing between walls, poles and manholes. Red Hook is going professional and impersonal, but in Milan there still a visceral vibe. People can feel it, and that’s why there were 10.000 enthusiasts watching probably the best race ever. Read More

No one like her

Last weekend Riccione, a small town on the Adriatic sea, hosted the Italian Triathlon Sprint Championships. Amongst all the athletes racing this distance (750 m swim, 20 km bike, 5 km run) there was also our Anna Maria Mazzetti, back from Olympics in Rio and World Championships in Mexico. With the aim to end up the season in the best way possible, Anna did a great race, always in the front group swim and bike part, in the 5 km run her solo brake away was worth the victory.
This is Anna’s 8th Italian Triathlon Sprint  Champion title in a raw!
An extraordinaire success for one of the most shining triathlon talent, with a great future ahead.
We are proud of you Anna!

Team Cinelli Chrome @ RHC London N.2

By | News | No Comments

After Brooklyn , Team Cinelli Chrome raced RedHook Series second stage in London last Saturday. The overall shape of the Team was excellent, they had been racing and getting podium at every race they took part.

Early Saturday, Team Cinelli Chrome experienced once again the new qualification rules, 5 groups and just 2 riders per team in the same group.

Since the early laps, riders found out that turn 3 was very slippery. During qualifying there have been a lot of crushes there, including Biganzoli and Petrache. Biga hurted his left hand quite bad, but both riders were able to avoid major injuries. There were many crushes at the same turn even in women’s field, slowing Ashley Faye and Jo Celso from getting their fastest lap. They qualified 11th and 13th.

The female final race was dominated by Danielle King, British pro rider, Olympic Gold medalist and World Champion in team pursuit. She lapped almost every rider but the 3rd and the 2nd. Nonetheless Jo Celso managed to get a solid 5th place, proving to be one of the most consistent rider of the fixed gear peloton.

The male race was very hard, Petrache managed to break away with Strickland but he spent too much during early laps and couldn’t keep Strickland wheel. He ended up 7th while Ravaioli did not find the right moment to sprint and got 4th.

Thanks to the points earned Team Cinelli Chrome is still in the fight for the 1st place in teams standings.

See you in Barcelona!
