LA VELOCITA’ E’ UNA PREROGATIVA
Nell’aria c’è tensione, tutti i concorrenti sono pronti e stanno aspettando il via. Quale tattica utilizzare, quali gruppi si formeranno e quanto saranno preparati gli avversari? Tra pochi istanti si farà sul serio. Sei consapevole del tuo grado di allenamento e sai che potrai far pieno affidamento sul tuo mezzo. Chiudi gli occhi per pochi secondi e fai un lungo respiro per trovare la giusta concentrazione. Una volta infettati dal virus del ciclismo, è difficile sbarazzarsene – il nostro manager, Erwin Rose, è qui un fulgido esempio. Da decenni un ciclista attivo ed un promotore di questo avvincente sport. La sua esperienza e l’esperienza dei corridori del team ROSE sui campi gara è la chiave di tutti i traguardi raggiunti in questi anni – come la serie X-LITE e le XEON CRS/RS. Siamo affascinati dalla competizione sportiva uomo contro uomo, squadra contro squadra e dell’uomo contro se stesso. Il concetto che il ciclista più veloce è il migliore è affascinante ed allo stesso spietato. La passione è la nostra forza!
