GIRO TT PREVIEW VIDEO: I discovered riding in Italy's prosecco region in the Veneto as part of the Prosecco Cycling gran fondo. Vineyards, lush rolling hills, and a 19% climb will also feature as the major obstacle in the 2020 Giro d'Italia's stage 14 time trial from Conegliano to Valdobbadiene. Luckily I had the GoPro rolling for some stunning on-bike video of the climb, the ride, and the prosecco & scampi rest stop.
REVIEW: The Castelli “Unlimited” collection of jersey, bibshorts, gloves and more, is designed for riders who love both adventure, and road cycling. Here's a close look at the Castelli collection's features and performance.

I braved torrential rains and white knuckle driving on the I5 to make the 6+ hour journey to visit the Castelli USA headquarters in Portland. The rough weather set the stage for my visit - to finally see and ride the much anticipated complete RoS Collection - including jacket, gloves, shoe covers, cap, and the Nanoflex Pro 2 bibtights.
