1270 meters of pure adrenaline. That’s what the Milan Bovisa Red Hook Crit. racing track is. We’ve seen plenty of watts put on that tarmac on Saturday for the awesome Milan stage of the Red Hook Crit. It was the ninth edition of RHC in Milan, nonetheless, the show and the fun are still the same. The very exciting atmosphere, street food, beer and strong women and men on bikes. You can’t ask...

Il Lombardia is the final Monument of the five in the cycling season and it is usually the last major outing for the pro riders before they take their off-season break. The ‘race of the falling leaves’ was a real battle that had been won by the great climbing specialist Thibaut Pinot who set a show with Vincenzo Nibali. But the real surprise was Egan Bernal of Team Sky who took the front of the...

As we head into the biggest race week of the year, we wanted to share some insights that Mirinda Carfrae and Timothy O’Donnell have gained over many years of training and racing, some humbling, some downright hilarious. We spent a day with them in Boulder at the end of August, and followed them during dawn laps in the pool, to the gym, out on the bike, and finally back home. We sat down with...

Castelli traces its roots back to 1876, when Vittore Gianni founded his fine tailoring business in the heart of Milan. That same year saw the first edition of Milano-Torino, the oldest bicycle race still on the calendar today, at 142 years. Now in its 99th edition, the 200-kilometer end-of-season cycling battle that has been won by great climbing specialists and puncheurs is set to put on...

Concerts all ends in the same way. The band plays one of the best songs and then disappears behind the stage, leaving a yelling public hoping they will come back for two or three more songs. Tim de Waele/Getty Images The cycling season is just the same, with the world championships being the best song played by the best band in the world — a peloton dressed up in national kit colors battling...

With the onset of Autumn and the racing season coming to a close the attention of the professionals turns to training.

Gianni Moscon is certainly one of the Italian riders to keep an eye on Sunday. The race might me too hard for such a rider, and someone doubts about him due to the long stop after the Tour de France. Truth is every national team will be watching him closely because he showed good condition during the recent Italian races and because he is so strong that leaving him five meters could mean seeing...
