Karla up front
"My favourite win of 2018 was Rad Race Last Woman Standing, it was unexpected and very emotional, having friends and the Schindelhauer Bikes crew on the sidelines."
"Red Hook Crit Milan was incredible, especially being the oldest female starter in the field competing with the best fixed racers in the world and finishing in the main group. Placement was secondary for me, the atmosphere made me hungry for more."
"For 2019 I'll be looking at starting at international races. I'm looking forward to racing the Fixed Nation Cup in Dijon and hope for the return of Red Hook Criterium in Europe”.
Following Brooklyn, both took the start in Berlin at Rad Race Fixed42, with Adrien attacking the bunch several times, which later awarded him title for "Top Antagonist" of the race. Just one month later, Adrien took part in another race within the Italian Fixed Cup in Lissone, ultimately finishing third in the series. Yvan competed in the same races as Adrien, but with a less aggressive style by nature.
Despite some good results in the book, Yvan, always a perfectionist, was hoping for more:
"Performance-wise it didn't go as planned for me, but the trips throughout Europe and the people we met made it all worthwhile. We hope to take the Züricrit further in 2019, the first fixed criterium in Switzerland, which we successfully introduced in 2018."
The third of our Zürich riders, Dylan Longridge, will spend 2019 in New Zealand pursuing his Geology degree, doing research on submarine vulcanism. But he won't be staying underwater long, as he's taking his Hektor bike with him, hoping to compete in races in the New Zealand fixed-gear scene.
