our friends over at Orme will be releasing a photo book of the 2010/11 cyclocross season in Italy. It will features photos and words from the Single Speed cyclocross series which we unfortunately were unable to take part in... With the rest of you we will have to wait for the book to be released to experience the series in full-four color glory. Until then I leave you with some really dirty bike porn...

National Championships

this weekend there are some important titles on the line, title to decide who will have the honor to wear their national colors for the next twelve months as cyclcross champions of their nation. But one title has already been given, no I am not talking about the US title, this is something far more important (sorry Todd). Yesterday under grey skies and muddy conditions - ideal for 'cross - the Single Speed Italian Championships took place in Rockville. Reports are just now trickling in (probably due to the large consumption of alcohol following the race) but it seems good times were had by all in attendance.

Here are some images from the race (top 2 photos - our main man Martin from ertzui film/ 3 photo Luca Bassi took 3rd/ bottom photo the aftermath - photos courtsey OrmeTV):

turning it up a notch

Shortly after my last cx race back in November I turned my bike in for boards - both single and double planks. This winter has been good, really good. Some nice snowboard powder days in Austria, cruising the groomers from my front door on the skate skis and getting back into telemark skiing. Beside my aspirations in some upcoming nordic events, laying some solid base and body work for the ensuing cycling season.

Occassionally I throw a leg over the trainer to spin the legs out but pretty much saving for the snow these days.

The boys up in one of my favorite parts of the world, Dresden will be throwing it down middle of this month at the Goldsprint Massacre II Those looking to prove their bravado will have some stiff competition and surely a good time waiting to be had.

When: 15.01.2011
Registration 14 Uhr
Start 16 Uhr
Where: ALTES WETTBÜRO DRESDEN, Antonstrasse 8 – 01097 Dresden

 We are a proud supporter of this event and look forward to seeing and hearing about the after math.

Speaking of aftermath, the Italian's are have their own version of mud-wrestling to crown the single speed cx champion. Our own Luca Bassi is flying the Crema colors in his campaign to be king of the mud hole on top of Spiedo's IF PX. Make us proud Luke!

Luke stylin' our skinsuit. We will be showing off our new teamkit very soon along with some other goodies...

Stay tuned and enjoy the ride!
