Ascending into the clouds, every pedal stroke - every breath - proved more difficult than the last. 100% humidity, serious altitude, and two days spent on the saddle, led Fernwee and the Ride Beyond Crew to reach new heights in Colombia.
As the full moon illuminated the surrounding scenery, the Atlas Mountain Race participants set out from that start line. Hiking his bike down the infamous 4km mule track, Allan Shaw made it to the first checkpoint of the race just after 5 AM in 52nd place. With sunset at 7 PM and sunrise at 8 AM, the riders had no choice but to battle it out in 13 hours of darkness.
Today CANYON//SRAM Racing and CANYON//SRAM Generation are thrilled to announce the selection of Hammerhead, innovators of cycling technology and makers of the Karoo 2, as their cycling computer partner for the 2023 season.
Cycling represents something different to every person. For a long time, all it represented to Hammerhead ambassador Beau Marksohn, aka @DadBod_Cyclist, was an unapproachable sport that was for people that look nothing like him.
The Solstice represents a shift in momentum and an opportunity for inner transformation. To celebrate, Hammerhead is offering a Limited ‘Solstice’ Bundle so you can pursue all your goals for the upcoming season.

125 years ago the Buffalo Soldiers, an all-Black regiment of U.S. soldiers stationed at Ft. Missoula, Montana, rode single-speed bikes 1,900 miles to St. Louis, Missouri over 41 days. Their objective was to test the feasibility of replacing horses with bikes in military operations. While the trip was fairly well-documented, upon completion the soldiers received very little recognition for the massive accomplishment. In fact, several of the soldiers were eventually buried without gravestones and their names are still unknown.
The inaugural 2022 Basajaun event has ended, leaving its finishers feeling euphoric - and exhausted. From July 30th to August 4th, riders had the opportunity to take on this unassisted, non-stop, single-stage gravel race. The route, which covered 760 kilometers of Spanish terrain and about +15,000 meters of climbing, showed how extreme the contrast of climate is in Europe.
