Bont used to be a brand name not well recognized until they aggressively entered the US market from Australia in 2009. And even then we didn’t pay much attention until local bike shops started picking up the line. I found them on display and my curiosity piqued after getting a pair in my hands. At...

Lance Armstrong versus Astana

Lance Armstrong versus Astana
Photo from stage 1 of the 2009 Giro de Italia starting in Venice, Italy. More than two things separate Lance from his team Astana: his helmet, his gloves and those nifty Nike shoecovers for a more aerodynamic time trial. The Nike swoosh is on the same side of each foot. Interesting.
