Nadezhda Pavlova – athlete, triathlete & tri coach – our new deputy Editor in Chief
We’re delighted to announce our new kit partnership with eco-friendly U.K. sportswear brand PRESCA. This dynamic and growing brand will be providing our editorial and team kit, allowing us more freedom to bring you truly independent cycling information, that identifies with our own ethical approach.
Having sponsored leading men’s and women’s teams, both in the U.K. and Europe, PRESCA work tirelessly to show that stylish performance clothing can also protect the planet. Take a look at the PRESCA website and choose your own eco-friendly kit from their modern performance clothing.
There’s lots more technical stuff on our website this year, as we continue to work closely with brands like Elite from Italy, to bring you lots of advice and information about indoor cycle training and how it can help you to reach those far off and beautiful places. Elite make the very best interactive trainers, water bottles and other cycling equipment, and we’ve got a wealth of information for you, as Larisa and the team use their products to find out more.
As a mountain lover and competitive athlete since childhood, Larisa Chinces knows about kit and how it needs to both perform and look stylish too. This road and mountain bike racer from Romania has trained for a number of different sports at all levels, including international level speed skating, and she knows the balance between comfort, performance and style. If you’re looking for great kit ideas, then Larisa probably has the answer you need 🙂
