What does my week look like? No two weeks are the same, the training I do, depends on a number of factors and what my race calendar looks like, but I want to give you a rough idea of an “average” training week. Monday—Recovery The main thing for me on Mondays is recovery and planning the week, do laundry, a food shop, etc. I can focus on training and work the rest of the week. After getting my...

Ever since a particularly cold and snowy edition of Milan-San Remo in 2013, the Gabba has been the most sought-after jersey in a cyclist’s wardrobe. Inheriting the style and performance of their predecessors, the Gabba 3 and Perfetto Long Sleeve Limited Edition jerseys are back in Barbaresco Red and Giro Pink. Designed using Windstopper® X-Lite Plus and Castelli’s exclusive Nano Flex material,...

Canada’s Eastern Townships is a well-known region for his many cycling trails and bike-friendly towns. Surrounded by lakes and the Appalachian mountains, fall is without a doubt the best season to ride your bike. The light and the colours create a mesmerizing set for all cycling enthusiasts seeking for great rides. Fall cycling also rhyme with changing temperatures. And by changing temperatures...

The Dolomites have a lot to offer to cyclists: spectacular peaks and legendary passes. To race or simply to get a glimpse of one of the many rides that the Dolomites are offering, Sella Ronda is maybe one of the most reachable circuit with a length of 55 kilometres and a gained altitude of 1780 metres. We have gathered five women, part of our women’s cycling community, to experience the...

It has become the can’t-miss event for the brakeless, fixed-gear world. Today, the Red Hook Criterium is the king of the fixie events, and Milano just hosted the last crit of the year. Castelli was there too, not only with the official Red Hook jersey but also with two participating teams. Our women’s team partner LA Sweat was in the race, and the men’s team Cykeln showed off a violet and mint...

This year’s World Championship was packed with action and new records. Lots of athletes took advantage of the ideal conditions with mirror flat water and almost no wind on race day. Australian Cameron Wurf put everything on one card early in the race and set a new bike record. Like last year, Patrick Lange brought his strength into play on the concluding marathon and took the title and a course...

On Tuesday morning, I wrote a small post on my personal website about my first UCI race since January 2016. I had wanted to write it on Sunday night or at least Monday morning, but when disappointment hits, writing a post to tell the world about how badly you feel about a race, isn’t the first thing you want to do – or do at all. I spent most of the travel home and Sunday night being annoyed...

It was a brilliant week for the Italian national team at the 2017 UCI Road World Championships. Italy won the most medals in Bergen, with seven – all in the junior categories. Elena Pirrone doubled up for the gold medals in the time trial and road race.

The one-day race so many pro riders have been preparing for is finally upon us: the 2017 UCI Road World Championships elite men’s road race. The wild coastal landscape of western Norway will mark the start of the men’s race. The wobbly 267.5 km course should make for an unpredictable contest, compounded by the potential for tricky weather, or what some riders would call “Perfetto, Gabba”...

Hi all! My name is Margriet Kloppenburg, 29-year-old Danish cyclocross racer. Some of you might have seen me showing off some great wet weather gear in the past and current Castelli catalogues. If you follow bike racing, you might also have seen my name in some road and cross results over the years or even seen me pop up on your TV screen on the occasions where our races have been streamed or...

In winning, Team Sky captain Chris Froome becomes the first rider who won  the Vuelta-Tour double since 1978, and only the third ever after Jacques Anquetil (1963) and Bernard Hinault (1978) to win the French and Spanish Grand Tours in the same year. The Team Sky leader has now won five Grand Tours within the last five years. Enjoy a gallery of some highlights of three weeks of racing...

Past weekend’s IRONMAN France (Nice) was a total triumph for Castelli athletes, who took the women’s and men’s titles at Côte d’Azur. Carrie Lester (AUS) – who was opting for a Free Speed W Race Jersey to ensure good aerodynamics on the bike and additional sun protection paired with Free W Tri Shorts – crossed the line first in 9:27:53, 10:38 ahead of runner-up Annabel Luxford. Belgian Frederik...

Chris Froome wrote himself further into the cycling history books after securing a fourth Tour de France victory in Paris. The Team Sky rider was flanked by his team-mates as he crossed the line on the Champs-Elysees, and claimed the famed maillot jaune by an eventual winning margin of 54 seconds. Froome’s third victory in a row, and a fifth in eight years for Team Sky, came after three hard...

The Climber’s Jersey and Inferno Bibshort are designed for racing in the mountains or in hot weather. We didn’t want to completely ignore aerodynamics, so we used patterning similar to our Aero Race 5.1 Jersey, which we knew was fast. The resulting jersey is extremely cool and light and instantly became a favorite with our pro riders. The Inferno, our hot-weather short, features a highly...

IT’S WHAT’S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS On the inside it’s identical to what the Team Sky riders train and race in. On the outside, there are just a couple of Team Sky stripes and a small Team Sky logo to give away what’s on the inside. Life as a pro can be hard, but it can be pretty nice too when you have the right clothing. Riding in the Team Sky Inside kit you immediately feel how good the...

The idea for this glove came in the ridiculously cold and rain-soaked 2014 Milan–San Remo. Our pro riders had numb hands and couldn’t get their gloves on or off to eat, or to change jackets or gloves. So we worked with Boa to make a glove that’s easier to open up and thus easier to get on and off. We built it with OutDry technology for waterproofness and made it come high up the wrist so your...
