20 days in Cali

We were lucky enough to get to escape the worst and darkest part of the Swedish winter and head over to California for a few weeks to get to do some training without any snow. 
It was a great time both on and of the bikes with moto-action, supercross and a visit to the Specialized HQ. 
Some of it got caught on tape so we managed to get this edit together that hopefully can help you get through the rest of your winter!
Big thanks to everyone that made this trip possible!

San remo


Nu finns det äntligen något vettigt att skriva om igen.

Vi är just nu i San remo och får lite sista minuten träning innan det bär av till winterberg för säsongens första riktiga tävling.

Hela gänget här är rätt slitna just nu efter att ha gått på rätt hårt med träningen dem senaste dagarna, så idag passar det bra med en vilo dag och vi hade tänkt ge cyklarna lite kärlek samt försöka ta en sväng till Monaco och kika lite.
