// REGISTRATION OPEN! // It’s Europe’s 2nd biggest gravel event – taking place in an area, that’s probably not (yet) on everyone’s radar. the “Hautes Fagnes” is a huge nature reserve that lies within the Ardennes (Belgium) and the Eifel (Germany). The “High Fens” (british name) is most famous for its moorlands on a vast high plateau, its highest point is the highest point of Belgium at the same time with scratching the 700m. We attended the ride last year (made it in less than 10hrs) and simply lost our heart at that event. We’ve never seen that amount of beautiful bikes and nice people, we had a lot of great and inspiring chats while riding a faszinating area. If you’re into such rides and might be interested: head over to @dirtyboar or www.dirtyboar.be and register before its too late, the starters field is strictly limited to 500 – and it won’t take too long anymore until it is sold out. We keep you updated, but more than the half is sold already! #bombtrackbicycleco#bombtrack#crossiscoming#cyclocross#cx#gravelbike#gravel#querfeldein#crossallseason#bikepassion#dirtyboar#whatgoesdownmustcomeup#hautesfagnes#hohesvenn#highfens

This is the Costiera road ..🛣 Corresponding to the sea, starting from the ninety meters of Sistiana where we also find Portopiccolo new eco-sustainable village born from the redevelopment of a stone quarry abandoned from the seventies up to a slight descent to the sea level of Barcola junction Miramare. It is a very scenic road, with the rocks of the Carso a mountain and the views of the Gulf of Trieste to the valley, which can also be seen in some squares-lookouts that are located along the path, a peak on the sea 🌊

The end of daylight savings is drawing near, and that means #crossiscoming . This week's #letstalkaboutcx skills session will cover cornering in loose terrain, off-camber climbing and descending, and exchanges in CX pits - as well as our staple fodder of starts, dismounts and remounts. Join us at Guide Dogs Victoria from 6:15pm for a 6:30pm rollout (please bring lights). Newcomers are always welcome regardless of skill level or experience, so come on down!
One more from this week’s blizzard. You never know what’s going to inspire you to get out of the house and get moving. In this case, we lost power in the storm with a foot or so of snow on the ground, so it seemed like the right time to break in the new set of 38cm @ritcheylogic Megabite tires I’ve been sitting on. I’ve never had CX tires that handled so well in the snow, and I’m looking forward to putting them to the test in Big River this week.
I have a rule about not wearing black. Except when you turn up to course prep and then get a chance to ride the course, and your work clothes were black. And one of the other vollies papped you doing it. Otherwise kids, don’t wear black on the roads as the other peeps can’t see you. #crossiscoming#testrideonmtb#blackonblack#besafebeseen 📸 Mr @ewenthompson
