CX World Championship Week continues!
C.A.R.N.S. is hosting a contest. Pick the Men's Elite podium correctly and you will be in the running for a limited edition CyclistsAreNotRockstars.com Rapha tee shirt.
The Swiss sure know how to take advantage of a mountain alp....

Here's a great way to start your work week....
2012 Claymore Challenge - Best Trick from Lucent Productions on Vimeo.
This video is sure to tug at the tear ducts. This little kid is well onto his way of becoming a Rockstar.

After a bit of a delay the 2013 Team Kit review is here. The off season was a quiet one in comparison to year's past. A bit solemn as well with some long running sponsors peeling the graphics off the team buses for the last time. It is going to be a transition year of sorts for pro-cycling. As such, kits designs, sponsors, and equipement took a little more time to finalize. And it still is being sorted out as of the time of this writing. (Whoever handles the graphics\kit for Team Katusha no-doubt deserves a raise. )
Here goes... The good, the bad, the Rockstar.
|Black continues to be the "in" color for the peleton.|
Team Eurocar looks a little less green goblin for 2013
and in the process, puts themselves in the running for most improved.
Grade - B+
|Lance Armstrong confessing and this jersey still being around.|
2 things that no right-thinking individual would believe 2 years ago.
Somehow tho, the AG2R "argyle" looks better this year than last.
The brown color is still off-putting to say the least.
But hey, if there's anything the last couple of weeks have taught us, it's that the French may deserve more credit than they are given.
Grade - B-
|Only minor changes to the BMC Walt Disney's Tron kit.|
They dump Hincapie and take on Pearl Izumi as manufacturer.
Still one of the better ones out there.
Grade - A-
|Meh. Call us when Petacchi retires.|
Grade - C+
|Any longtime fan of C.A.N.R.S. knows we've been hard on Rapha |
in the past, but the site is going on the record here as saying
that it is long overdue for them to be involved
in road-pro jersey design. The Sky kit, as does the team in general, plots a course to where few can follow.
If we hear another person ask if the all black is
going to be too hot for the summer, we are changing the name of this site to
to seek out more intelligent readers.
Grade - A+
|NetApp will be a strong team, mark those words.|
The kit however, tries too hard to be
fashionably-black and swiss-smart.
Ends up looking like a chinese designed Omega Pharma kit.
Grade - D+
|Minor changes for the team that snagged the Manx Missile.|
The high-tech black to teal fade is a great touch & the designers of the kit found a way to make it work with the all white sections.
Grade - A-
The Tour of Cali's leaders jersey is a bit revamped.
Less TDF, more MS Charity ride.
Stay tuned for the annual C.A.N.R.S. Pro team kit review!
Fans of NYC will be disappointed to hear that the velodrome in Brooklyn has been shot down due to the extreme costs involved in the proposed plan... Here
This video is sure to be an early hit in 2013.
We like it because it pulls attention away from the Rockstar and focuses it a bit more on the process.
