SNEAK PEEK INSIDE THE SECRET SPEED LAB. Castelli’s single-minded mission is to make the most innovative clothing for the cyclist seeking maximum performance. Just as @teamsky
, we leave nothing to chance and share the same drive for results-driven innovation in everything we do.
Our speed suit project doesn’t stop here, and we believe that we’re going to continue to see significant gains over the coming years. Team Sky's Body Paint Speed Suit is the result of CFD modelling followed by extensive pattern engineering and fabric research, then further testing in the wind tunnel and on the road.
Have you ever wondered if it would be possible to ride 5000＋ meters of climbing on little country roads in less than 120k?
Some call it fun. Some call it torture. @igortavella
, and @jeredgruber
throw the chance to ride the #YOLOmites5000
every year in September. An all-day adventure along the flanks of the Dolomites with a mix of gravel, dirt, and pavement. Not a flat road in sight and packed full of adventure.

The perfect morning ride? @CHPT3
were up with the sunrise last week taking in some of Surrey's finest roads with the occasional stretch of gravel, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Departing from @sigmasports
in the UK, @Millarmind
opted for the JJ, giving full protection from any morning chill, whilst others held onto summer with the Vueltadata ensemble.
The Nelmezzo RoS Jersey is our spring and fall do-everything jersey. It’s part of our Rain or Shine (RoS) collection of products, which are made to be your favorite garments for dry weather, yet provide significant water protection in case you are caught out in light rain.
Personally, I think is coming one of the best seasons for bike riding. Very looking forward to riding into the warmest colors of the year. #castelliwomen
Riding doesn't only mean performance.
It's also about discovering new places, authentic people, local traditions and unexplored roads at the best speed to experience them all.
That's what we like about cycling as well: clipping in your pedals being one person, unclipping being another, richer one.
Getting ready for a long weekend riding bikes in the Dolomites.
We are privileged to have some of the best riding spots that close.
Nothing better than finding the right rhythm on those descents.

What a great way to end a day! Just you, your bike, a road without cars and the #dolomites
P.S. If your day is starting... well: I wish you it could end in this way!

Although La Vuelta is far from over, and Worlds and Il Lombardia are just around the corner, some of us are already looking ahead to rainy fall days when muddy cyclocross courses replace the smooth asphalt of road season.
