It is with great sadness that we make this announcement. Yesterday on Wednesday April 18th, 2018 we lost what might have been the greatest visionary innovator in the history of cycling. Andy Rihs, the co founder of a company called Phonak made his fortune in the hearing aid business and invested heavily into his passion, Cycling. In the year 2000 Andy took over the reins of a little swiss bicycle company called BMC, it was his vision to turn his brand into the Porsche of bicycles. Andy's vision came to fruition over the years with BMC continually setting the bar for the industry standard of high performance bicycle frame innovation, design, and integrity. Andy wasn't just into building an amazing brand, the swiss entreprenuer was a massive supporter of professional cycling, and invested heavily in fully funding his own team for the previous 18 years from Phonak through to BMC Professional Cycling Team. 75 year old Rihs passed yesterday at a hospital in Zurich, surrounded by his Family. We truly appreciate all that Andy did for this sport. RIP Mr Rihs.

Luis Leon Sanchez wins stage 4 of the Tour of the Alps and Astana continues on their streak of utter domination!
The race for the stage win went down in epic fashion as the race leaders tested eachothers nerves setting a furios pace on the final descend. Attacks were launched from the likes of Froome, Lopez, Bennet, and then finally Sanchez who broke free with just over 2km to go. Pinot of FDJ still sits in the overall race lead with 15 seconds advantage over Domenico Pozzovivo of Bahrain Medrida. Superman Lopez of Astana sits in 3rd also just 15 seconds back. Astana had 5 men in the lead group, and it will be interesting to see what kind of fire works go down tomorrow with 30km of climbing inside the final 50km of racing.

Impunidade não é luxo só do Brasil. Mallorca, ciclistas são atropelados por "motorista" (1 vida ceifada) e vai embora em seu lindo porsche. 😞
Vamos dar menos relevancia ao 💰 e muito mais a vida!
