TPH Racing does the Giro d’Italia!

As we all probably know, the Giro d’Italia has started. An Individual TT Prologue got things going. A mere 8km. So what’s the fuss? Well the last 2 km are straight up. Up a wall. A wall of 10% average and 16% at max. Nice.

What you may not know is that us mere mortals can ride that Prologue stage. Zwift have recreated it exactly on their virtual riding/racing platform and for the first 3 days of the Giro you can pit yourself against the Pros (and your ride buddies). Being a “non-competitive” bunch, some of TPH Racing have given it a nudge with the remainder of the team being “nudged” to give it a go also!

As it stands Rob has bragging rights, but with Adam, Stu, Alex and Molly still to have a dig and with Keeds giving it another go will he stay on top?

If you are on Zwift, give it a go yourself. There’s one common words to everybody’s description of the stage. “Brutal”. The hardest 8 km you’ll ever ride? You decide.

REILLY CYCLEWORKS GRADIENT FRAMESET

gradientV2_blkframe_1_grande.jpg

The REILLY Gradient is an unprecedented engineering achievement. Combining a Hydro-formed REILLY AXIS 3AL-2.5V titanium tube set with hugely flexible geometry, Mark Reilly/Damon Fisher designed an all in one package of pure indulgence.

Mark designed the Gradient to be very progressive with an ultra-secure disc 12 x 142mm rear thru axle and a stunning but subtle REILLY AXIS multi-facet Hydro-Formed titanium tube set, just like the favourite steel tube set Columbus Spirit HSS

It doesn’t stop there. Clearances for 700c 44mm tyres with guards, and 650b 47/50c without guards, flat mount disc and thru axle. The new REILLY AXIS tube set is incredibly stiff but wonderfully comfortable making it ideal for fast gravel riding. The Gradient also represents great value for a high quality titanium frame at only £1,599.

Road, Gravel, Audax, Tour, Cyclo Cross, this bike has it all! Come and see our demo bike in store, or give us a call to arrange a test ride on 01473 828129.
