I look forward to traveling to Lago Di Garda every year. It's an opportunity for me to see a lot of friends, ride great trails and eat the best food in the world. As I have attended the festival many times before, it has become a bit of a tradition to celebrate my birthday there.
These pictures show how important it is to have good grip with boots and pedals, especially in WET CONDITIONS! It shows I have managed to keep feet on pedals and land safely... Thanks FIVE-TEN!
Wow, what a busy trip in Portugal for the Santa Cruz Syndicate this has been! Landing in Porto, Portugal last week and having 20 pieces of baggage (large baggage at that), all arriving with us started the trip well. With Ricky Bobby and the brand new Peaty Syndicate van waiting curbside for us, we stuffed the van full and hustled down to Lousa to meet up with Cedric Gracia and his new Brigade rig. The mechanics and Santa Cruz engineers, Joe Graney and Josh Kissner went right to work to get the new Santa Cruz Carbon V-10’s ready...
The last few weeks have been a bit slow. The trip is nearly finished with only three weeks remaining. Chad took off on Tuesday and Dave went north to Sweden for a lecture/master class and myself? Im still here, in Avellanes enjoying the spring season. It's been a while so here is a small update
Therese Johansen, our newest 5.10 athlete in Norway, did her second 8A+ boulder today. When she is back at home and able to update her profile on 8a.nu, she will be ranked as the #1 female boulderer globally! And, her crusade has just started, expect big things from this 20 year old girl.
Five Ten® made a great appearance at the French Bouldering Championship in Fontainebleau last weekend. 5.10 athletes Francois Kaiser, Mathieu Serra and Alan Momirovic made us proud by taking the top three spots on the podium. Way to go guys!
