Today was the day our 2016 Kits were to be revealed to the team and our fans. Well, that didn't happen since most of the tri-state area was hit by our first snow storm of the year. This was no small storm with areas receiving over 28" of snow. I had all the new Castelli kits, Bontrager cycling shoes and new Lazer Z1 helmets ready to be handed out to the race team. Sarah and I were super excited to reveal the kits that took many hours to come up with the perfect design. I have to admit our Designer Cherylin Tiefel kicked butt on these. This years kit incorporated the green from Cawes and boy was I happy about that. I love Green!
Sarah and I decided to keep the team and our fans in suspense until our kit reveal day. With so many asking and wondering what they looked like we decided its time to get the kits out there for everyone to see. Plus we have our out of state riders racing in them this weekend as well.
I decided to have a little fun on this snow day to reveal the kits to my teammates and fans in an unconventional way.
Here I am contemplating which bike would be best to trek through 28" of snow, hehe see what I did there... I am also sporting my new Castelli Thermal jacket to keep me warm while I investigate the situation.
I decide to give my new Trek Emonda SLR a shot. Why not right? To keep me safe I am wearing my new Lazer z1 MIPS helmet.
With much disappointment and several failed attempts I knew the Trek Emonda was not cut out for the task.
A mountain bike would surely be more fit for these conditions so I grabbed my Trek Top Fuel.
I was so excited that I forgot my helmet inside.
Here I go!!!
It didn't work! :(
It was time to bring the Trek Top Fuel back in and come up with another plan!
Now what!? The only thing left to do was have fun in the snow.
Well there you have it. Our 2016 Castelli Kits designed by Cherylin Tiefel with the help of Sarah and I.
