May 9-29: Beat Giovani

By | Events | No Comments
Last spring our friend Giovani came to Seattle to train for the 2016 season and specifically the 2016 Giro d’Italia while rehabilitating a sprained ego that ended his racing early in 2015. We shared his training with you during our “Meet Giovani, Beat Giovani” competition. Sadly, Giovani was recently informed he was not selected for this year’s edition of the Giro, hosted in his home country. So now he is back in Seattle leaving the Euro racing scene behind and seeking Strava KOM domination of our fair city.

Bike-less after abandoning his professional team in Italy, we have lent Giovani our limited edition Seven + CBS Giro Bike as he Strava hunts KOM’s on the climbs of Seattle.

In celebration of the 2016 edition of the Giro d’Italia, we invite you to ride three iconic climbs of Seattle, hash tag your efforts on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook, and show us you #BeatGiovani. Read More

For most, the constraints of life don’t allow the pursuit but from July 2  to July 24 we challenge/encourage you to ride a tenth of the Tour with us.
