Welcome to the Wednesday, August 22 Mid-Week Report…here’s what we have in store for you today…
PHOTO OF THE WEEK – IN YOUR DREAMS
THE VUELTA (AND BOBKE) IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
We just got a call from our favorite TV commentator, Bob “Bobke” Roll, who despite being fresh back from both the Tour of Utah and Colorado Classic was just a few days away from heading back east to commentate on the upcoming Vuelta a Espana. NBS Sports will be providing two-hour nightly coverage next week so be sure to check in on all the action.
TREK GOES COMPACT
Is it just us or has Trek committed their entire line-up of road bikes to Compact cranks? From the new Madone we got into chasing down bikes on the Trek Bicycles site, seems like everything is spec’d with Compact chainrings only. Strange. Here’s the full story
TEAM UHC’S COLORADO TWO-FER
The UnitedHealthcare cycling team took a huge, but bittersweet double victory at the Colorado classic when both their men’s and women’s Blue Trains took the overall victories.
While the wins were sweet, news that the legacy US squad will be going away for 2019 (consumed by their corporate sponsor partner Rally Cycling team) was indeed hard to swallow. (Photos: John Devich)
WIN A SWEET PINARELLO
For the second year running Carmichael Training Systems is promoting the Figueroa Mountain Gran Fondo taking place in the (beyond) beautiful Santa Ynez Valley (outside of Santa Barbara). And this year they are excited to announce that everyone who signs up for the 2018 CTS will be entered to win a Pinarello Prince FX with a Dura Ace drivetrain. Fig Fondo entry prices will be going up in just a couple weeks, so makes sure to sign up soon to get the best pricing. CTS Fig Fondo.
DO YOU WANNA WIN A NEW CROSS BIKE?
Do you love cross or just want a sweet new custom bike? Well, looks like this might be your chance to win a MAAP/Enve Team-Edition Cannondale SuperX with a Shimano Ultegra Di2 build. It will roll on Enve M525 G wheels and you can ride away with some MAAP gear too.
