We thank you all.
Happy New Year to everyone and here is to an amazing 2015.
Cold, muddy and exhausting – watching cyclocross was hard work. Riding it looked even harder. Rudy and Pasquale were the ones brave enough to kit up and race in Round 11 of the London X League at Redbridge Cycling Centre.
Some photos from the South-Eastern Cyclocross Championship in Deal, Kent. Alex is still healing from his Red Hook Crit crash and was there to support Rudy and Pasquale, while photographer Jon Baines was there behind his lenses taking some great shots. Click read more below to see rest of the set.
As previously documented in the King of the Mountains Tour write up by Pasquale, 5th Floor made a foray into the Pyrenees, Ventoux and the Alps earlier this year as part of a 7 day tour. On the final day I shot some GoPro footage of Col du Télégraphe, Col du Galibier and Alpe d’Huez. These three short videos have lots of climbing, descending, attacks, stunning views and a dashboard view of my Garmin with full telemetry.

We were over the moon to be joined by Andy Bokanev for Rapha Supercross in Gloucester. This is the first half of the ‘Holy Week’ of Cross here on the East Coast and it was exceptional in every way apart from the continued heat and dust bowl of the season so far.
Despite the race being such a highlight of the season it’s almost overshadowed by the fun times in MA that accompany it having Andy there this year really added to it. Read last years account from our cat 4/5 perspective here.Part 2 of black and whites to follow tomorrow.
Despite riding thousands of miles a year as a team, days like Saturday still remain few and far between. The 101 miles Donalrey had envisaged for us soon became when 112 when we decided (like it was ever up for debate…) that we WOULD do the extra climb mid-way through up Sugarloaf. Endless sunshine, roads and dare i say it, pain made up what has to be my favorite day of riding this year. Click Read More for the full article.
