We are getting ready for RAD RACE Tour de Friends 2018 and this is what we got in our bags.
As always in life there are two sides of the same coin. Do you remember RAD RACE Tour de Friends 2017?
Scenario 1: Stage 3 from Brixen to Vittorio Veneto in pouring rain and temperatures at nearly 5 degrees in Cortina d’Ampezzo. On the other hand scenario 2 the day after: stage 4 from Vittorio Veneto to Jesolo with sunshine and a ride in beautiful mediterranean weather.
Lucky RAD PACK as we are perfectly equipped by our beloved partner Gore Wear who supports us with a huge product range!
Imagine scenario 1 and horrible conditions for a 200k ride- I would highly recommend the windstopper technology as used in the Gore C7 WINDSTOPPER Bib and the C7 WINDSTOPPER Jersey for staying warm and comfortable. You can add the Gore arm warmers and Leg Warmers for further equipment to keep you sheltered! And after experiencing last years hardest day in the saddle at stage 3 the Gore C7 Gore-Tex SHAKEDRY can rightly be called my life saver. Maybe sounds weird but this jacket is like a hailing port in the rough sea! It saved my body from becoming hypothermic and getting soaking wet.
Completely opposite the next day at the stage 4 to Jesolo in sunny weather. For this reason I changed my outfit and choosed the Gore C7 Jersey in combination with the Gore C7 Bib. Both characterized by tight fit and perfect ventilation to keep your head and guns cool at the final fast k’s to the finish line.
To give you a final advice for this years edition of RAD RACE Tour de Friends: Enjoy every second on the bike with 499 friends no matter the weather! (and just in case check your wardrobe or the Gore online shop!)
