Our resident racing supremo (Dave) has just returned from the Castelli 24h race in Italy where he managed to grab an interview with Cervelo Test Team rider – Volodymir Gustov, who was polite enough to give up his time to speak with him in the pits. Dave described this race as “the best racing experience of his life” and bearing in mind he has raced and ridden all over the world for a number of different teams, this is a high praise indeed.
I’m back and recovering slowly from the Castelli 24 hour race and I have loads of video, photo’s and stories to tell. In the mean time however, while I whittle down the gibberish I was babbling at 2am in the morning from what is appropriate for a works blog, I’ve decided to grace you with a interview (remember folks I’m not a professional journalist) with Cervelo Test Team rider Volodymir Gustov.
