The 2016 Giro d’Italia starts with a flat time trial. At 9.8km, it’s unlikely to decide the race but it’s still a good opportunity for stealing seconds. Last year’s Tour de France stage 1, 4km longer than this, saw significant gaps between the leading contenders.
Last saturday, team Artivelo appeared at the start of the 2016 Paris Roubaix challenge.
We departed the Hilversum Media Park friday morning towards Roubaix. The racing bikes have been replaced by crossbikes with double handlebar-tapes and 28mm tires. The only thing remaining was that we needed to pick up the starting tickets at Roubaix’ Velodrome.
Since the start was located in Busigny, we drove straight to Saint Quentin where we spend the night. We did a quick bike check before dinner and had a early night.
Saturday morning we were at the start of the 170 km in the “Hell of the North“. The only Tour where you can take the full Paris Roubaix course including 52,5 km of cobbles like Wallers-Arenberg forrest, Mons-en-Pévèle and Carrefour de l’Arbre.
For some of us it was the third time. The 27 cobble sections slowly take their toll bit after 5 hours and 40 minutes we arrived at the Velodrome. The clock shows an average of 30 kph and we all gained a new experience. Anekdotes are shared under the legendary Velodrome showers as an end to a beautifull day.
The 100th edition of Tour of Flanders is at hand! You couldn’t have missed it. The Tour is the monument of the Flanders cycling sport. The day before the professional Tour, over 16.000 amateur cyclists ride the memorable hills such as the Patersberg, Oude Kwaremont en the Koppenberg. Team Artivelo avoided the crowds and rode the Tour of Flanders for the 10th time the week ahead of the Tour.
The Artivelo BikeDock is made in Holland. A strong 3 mm thick steel wall mount to store your bike and cycling gear.
We use a laser to cut patterns and designs.
Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.

Cycling Teams UWTC De Volharding were introduced to the press last friday.
Last friday in the Postillion in Bunnik there was a presentation of different cycling teams of UWTC De Volharding under great public interest. The hall in the Postillion was filled with family, friends, sponsors, media and other interested parties. The turnout was fantastic again this year. It is extraordinary to see how the team lives in the Netherlands. Not only did the riders and staff look back at a very succefull 2015, they also looked at the season ahead of them. The photographers were given plenty of time to capture the various Elite, Espoirs and Juniors, both as a team and individually. Edwin Driessen, who hosted the evening, called several team managers, riders and sponsors onto the stage. The rest of the evening was used to shine a light on the sponsors and their contributions. Wim Sluis presented the new cycling outfit to them. This year, 2Wielerspecialist Driebergen makes sure that the riders are equipped with Specialized bikes. The video of Toff gives you an impression of the fantastic evening.

Artivelo BikeDock gives your bike a permanent place in your home with a stylish look.
Team Artivelo at the start of Paris Roubaix Challenge 2016
On April 9, 2016, the tour version of Paris Roubaix or the hell of the North takes place. One day before the Pros start, is on Saturday, April 9, the Paris-Roubaix Challenge on the agenda. The ultimate challenge is to ride the 170k from Busigny to Roubaix, on the same course as the pros will do the day after. However, the routes of 141k and 70k will also leave you plenty of opportunity to get to know the tough cobblestone sections of the mythical Paris-Roubaix race. The full length 170km route features 28 sections of pavé, with each one given a star rating to indicate difficulty. Team Artivelo are riding the longest version with 51.2 km of illustrious paved zones, like the Wallers and the Carrefour de l’Arbre. The finish is on the famous Vélodrome André Pétrieux of Roubaix.
