go big. do the croc.

THE ULTIMATE MTB STAGE RACING EXPERIENCE The Great Australian Outback, for visitors and locals alike, is what makes this giant island nation so unique. But the bush is just one aspect of Far North Queensland that makes the Crocodile Trophy arguably one of the most true blue experiences you could have on a bike. From sun-scorched trails through to lush rainforests filled with world-class single track and even a final stage along Port Douglas beach, this year’s eight-day Crocodile Trophy or three-day Croc Elements is one to seriously consider. Celebrating its 25th edition, this iconic event isn’t just for the die-hard off-road racers, the Croc is a cycling adventure that is about far more than just what happens on the bike. From the first night in camp – in your own tent,…

ed’s letter

Look up the list of Australia’s ‘must-do’ cycling adventures and South Australia’s Mawson Trail should be towards the very top. The 900km journey kicks off from Adelaide’s CBD and winds out of town towards the historic town of Lobethal – visited often during the Tour Down Under – before heading north to the Clare Valley and onwards to the Flinders Ranges. We only managed to squeeze in a week-long expedition (see page 42), but for those tackling it end-to-end, don’t expect to cover too much ground each day. We recommend signing up for BikeSA’s next Odyssey, which soaks up the trail’s entirety over three weeks – an Australian Grand Tour, if you will. Speaking of Grand Tours, this year’s Vuelta a España was top-notch. It was a race of firsts; a…

new dogma, new tricks

All the stuff that makes you glad to be a cyclist When the Dogma 65.1 first made headlines under Bradley Wiggins in 2012, the frame was a curvaceous affair that looked markedly different to its competitors. Its success in races meant that the distinctive design became intertwined with Pinarello’s brand identity, but then the F8 and F10 came along, and the Dogma’s flowing lines were pegged back a bit. In the new F12, though, the curves are back, and those distinctive tube shapes are in evidence once again – or an evolved version of them, anyway. Pinarello’s R&D coordinator, Michele Botteon, says this was key to improving the frame’s aerodynamics and stiffness. ‘It also had the pleasant side-effect of creating a more quintessential Dogma appearance,’ he adds. As the part of the bike that…

silca viaggio travel pump

$445, echelonsports.com Looking for the most beautiful and ingenious travel pump money can buy? Look no further. Packed down, the Viaggio occupies no more space than a rolled-up poster, but when assembled it will provide the stability and leverage of a regular track pump. Silca has achieved this by employing fold-out feet, eschewing a pressure gauge – instead relying on a claimed +/-1% accurate Bluetooth sensor that displays on an app – and devising a neat detachable handle that slots onto a groove in the barrel. It simultaneously reduces the pump’s size and neatly secures the hose. Plus, upon reconstruction it has the added thrill of making you feel like you are assembling an assault rifle, James Bond style.…

fizik r1 vento powerstrap shoes

Cycling shoe retention systems seem to change fashion more often than Australian prime ministers. One year it’s all about Boa dials, the next year it’s laces, and now it seems we’re back to Velcro. But Fizik’s Powerstrap is about more than trends. Powerstrap involves a central Velcro strap that wraps around the midfoot, plus a higher strap to secure the instep, which together offer complete control of the fit of the shoe’s upper. The design was originally found on the lower-cost Tempo R5 Powerstrap, but its light weight and improved comfort proved to be a hit with WorldTour pros such as Mikel Landa and Richard Carapaz, so Fizik has now introduced the system to its top-tier R1. That means the shoe includes a stiff unidirectional carbon sole to preserve power transfer, and…
