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...

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...

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...

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...

The Aero Race Jersey originates from a very simple concept that is representative of the Castelli DNA: enabling riders to go as fast as possible. The idea emerged when we realized that improving the fit of the clothing reduced aerodynamic drag, allowing the rider to gain precious seconds. If we consider that a professional cyclist in a race maintains an average speed of more than 30 km/h, even...

Based on the characteristics of the stage and the weather conditions, every rider makes his own clothing choices. It’s important to show up at the start with the “perfect” clothing, but it’s also important to select the right pieces to have in the team car during the race or in the team bus before the race when there will be a warm-up session on the rollers. Below Andrea analyzes the most...
