PARCOURS AND PANACHE
This year’s edition of the Transcontinental Race was won by a little known German by the name of Fiona Kolbinger riding her first-ever unsupported ultra-race. TCRNo7, if you have to ask, was not a women-only race, nor did it make concessions to gender. Armed only with a big smile, preparedness and natural panache, a 24-year-old medical student won one of the hardest endurance bike races in the world against a field that included over 200 men. And she wasn’t anywhere near her limit.
FLYING HIGH, RIDING LOW
In August we had the pleasure of hosting our Tyax and Chill contest winner Euan Camlin and his + 1 Angus Croudace for a week of some of the best riding British Columbia has to offer. After overcoming the first obstacle of getting the lads here from Edinburgh, we picked them up at Vancouver airport for the scenic 1.5-hour drive north to Squamish. That is until the effects of a long day of travel hit, and the scenery took a backseat to some well-earned snooze time.
In the end, we all get to the same place. One moment life/bike is in balance, and then it’s gone. Nights are spent organising the weekend ride – where, when, how far? Days are for dreaming. Details are honed. For Christoph Döttelmayer, 7mesh rider and Head of Design at Dachstein footwear in Austria, falling hard for road cycling came through form, feeling and a search for simplicity.
