In a world where, for most practitioners of any sport, time restrictions and weather conditions determine the number of hours we can spend doing what we like the most, online training platforms are undoubtedly a convenient tool and a very valid alternative. If we focus on the cycling sector, we can find several options that promote a virtual world in which to continue practicing our favorite sport. Following a different approach, within the current offer, there is a company that is focusing instead on the use of virtual reality and works very hard to bring the outside world closer to the insid ..read more

During our participation in the last GiRodeo, we met once again with the Argonaut team while in Girona and shared a few off ..read more

Around the beginning of February, many riders from the professional peloton officially start their competitive season. That might not be the case for cyclocross riders, as they are just finishing their fall-winter season, with the culminating point with the Worlds in Tábor two weeks ago. However, road-focused cyclists take the opportunity to improve their form after the winter preparation by taking part in small one-day or short multiple-stage races, which puts them back in the racing mindset.

Japan has a rich culture, with traditions and a powerful language. They have an extensive dictionary of words, some with a clear meaning and others that we cannot directly translate to another language.
