KOM Tour GoPro Footage by Daniel Slotte

October 6, 2014 | By | No Comments

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.

Part 1 / 3: Col du Télégraphe

Part 2 / 3: Col du Galibier

Deux North: Hunt 4: #seekanddiverge Trailer.

July 14, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

I reported on my experiences as part of the the #seekanddiverge trip here; the build up to the launch of the bike continues with the release of the trailer, check it out…

Hunt 4 – Trailer from Deux North on Vimeo.

This summer, Specialized approached Deux North with an idea. They were planning to release a new bike in July, a bike built for every kind of road. They wanted us, Deux North, to sort of test their new bike on gravel roads, single track, up Mt. Tam, and along the coast from Morgan Hill to Santa Rosa, CA. We knew we needed a Hunt unlike any other before it to meet this new bike. So, we gathered the best group of people we could think of, picked a challenging route, packed our tents, left (more than) a few things unplanned, and caught a flight to California.

On June 4th, 9 hunters met in San Jose. Coming from New York, Vienna, Tucson, and California, together they made up the largest group that Deux North had ever put together. Over the following three days, we all rode from Specialized’s HQ in Morgan Hill together to Santa Cruz to compete in the King Ridge Hopper Adventure Series on the final day.

The Hunt 4 route included nearly 30% dirt roads, over 300 miles, 30,000 ft of climbing, and 24 hours of riding across 3 days and some of the most beautiful landscapes west America offers. Nights were spent at campsites and inside borrowed barns.

We will never forget this trip. 

Stay tuned for the full story and video on July 15th

MET: We are Italians

March 6, 2014 | By | No Comments

Our LDN sponsor MET Helmets was founded in 1987 and their headquarters are located in Talamona, a small town in the heart of the Italian Alps.

Lucky for them, Madonna del Ghisallo, muro di Sormano…some of the most iconic cycling roads in the world are just a bike ride away from their headquarters. Not bad for a lunch time/staff ride.

This is a short movie showing our friends Juliet Elliott and Dave Noakes riding cycling’s true spiritual home. Get inspired.

The RHC Series keeps giving…

The subject of the film, released in January 2014, will focus on the Red Hook Crit Milano. It will not only appreciate the qualities of pedaling riders but also to have their testimony on the Red Hook and cycling: Evan Murphy (Stanridge Speed Cycles), Kyle Murphy (MASHSF), Cooper Ray (Kingkog – Rosko).
These riders who come from all around the world to confront a sometimes dangerous and treacherous circuit are much more than more amateurs and imposes tough workouts for the podium.
We also have the testimony of Antonio Colombo, President of Cinelli and partner of the Red Hook Crit. And as is always a story of encounters, you’ll find people with whom we left, with whom we spent time after the race and the people we met on site.

Furious Cycling

November 27, 2013 | By | No Comments

Keeping the fun in cycling.

“Every sport needs a maverick. Furious Cycling follows one man and his quest to take road biking in a new direction. He shuns the mountain passes of the Lake District, and even traditional lycra, in exchange for a very different type of road challenge. We find out how his DIY training methods and gear fare against a notorious Cumbrian safety camera, and why he’s so angry.”
