Shout out to the ladies

March 7th, 2019 - Katie Bolling

A few weeks ago, I was having a conversation with someone I’ve known through the span of my career in cycling and he asked me: “What do you think you’re best at?” Without too much of a pause, I replied: “I love building community and connections through cycling. I hope it’s something that people value, and that others would say I’m good at.” This Friday is International Women’s Day, and I’ve been thinking a bit more about that conversation in terms of the incredible community that I’ve found amongst other female cyclists.

Poli Ponders Ventoux 25 years on

January 7th, 2019 - Jim Merithew

“You’re right, Jim,” said Eros Poli, as we rounded another switchback into another blistering headwind. “This climb is stupido.” It was a vindication for my long-held theory that Mont Ventoux is in fact one of the stupidest climbs in all of professional cycling.

New year, new you, new FTP

January 1st, 2019 - Jim Merithew

It seems simple enough, I just want to go faster and further with less effort. I want to climb like Pantani, descend like Nibali and hammer the flats like Poli. I also want chat with my riding partners, while climbing 14 percent grades, about the weather or the foliage or the price of organic coffee beans.
