As summer in the northern hemisphere comes racing to an end, it feels appropriate that the Castelli Team chose to host their Epic ride on the “Chasing the Sun” route. I, like many I am sure, don’t want the end of the summer to come, but the inevitable dark nights are drawing nigh. Thankfully, we have Zwift and rides like this to look forward to and enjoy!
The August Castelli Epic is at its usual time of 7:25pm CEST/6:25pm BST/2:25pm EDT/11:25am PDT and you can join the event by clicking here.
As customary on this monthly Epic ride with Castelli, they will be giving away a premium bit of cycling clothing. In addition, given that currently the Vuelta a España is taking part around Spain, there will be stories from this historic race, to keep you entertained!
As customary, to win the jersey stay close to the yellow beacon and at a certain point on the ride, a snapshot will be taken and a winner selected. To be in with a chance to win, make sure that you visit and join Castelli’s Strava club.
About the Jerseys
Aero Race 6.0 Jersey
Both of these jerseys are premium items. I know my Aero Race 6.0 jersey only comes out of my wardrobe on special occasions! As Castelli notes, they have been “engineered for all-day comfort with excellent moisture management and comfortable fit.”
These jerseys fit snugly because they’ve been “engineered for aero efficiency at 30 to 55 km/h.” Key design features include:
- 3 pockets with drop tail, allowing perfect pocket placement while keeping jersey fitting well at waist
- Airflow shoulder construction
- Velocity Rev2 fabric on front and sleeve
- 3D mesh back for breathability
- Elbow-length stretch sleeves with raw-cut edge
- YKK® Vislon® zipper
Sign up and join an established and well-organised group ride, led by some of the best in the business, and be in with a chance to win some premium cycling gear.
