Hello all, a bit of a mix and match article this time. A lot’s been happening at HQ and a quick look around our favourite news websites would indictate that everyone seems to be up to something!

First and foremost is the official news of PBK’s race team for 2010. James is the manager of the tem, and is joined by a very well qualified team. As Mark has said:

“This is a great opportunity for ProBikeKit to be associated with some of the best of the UK’s young breakthrough talent. Our focus as a business is on providing the dedicated road enthusiast with all their riding needs, so the chance to support talented riders on their journey to the top flight of road cycling is a natural fit with the PBK brand”

We are all excited here (especially about the spring training camp – the ultimate scive?!) and wish them a good winters training. Your kit is on its way I promise!

Next up is the sad news of Frank Vandenbroucke died on monday.

However controversial his career this was a sad day for cycling. More: here

On a happier note, and one that helps us to remember the sunshine enjoyed this summer, the 2010 TDF route has been released. It looks as entertaining as ever, with Morzine-Avoriaz featuring which many will know for its skiing, and after spending a year there it’s sure to be an eventful stage – who’s going???

After playing around on the electric skateboard instead of clearing the warehouse in preparation for the 2010 range, we have a large Sidi sale on at the minute. Have a look here if you’re after some new shoes. There is  up to 70% off some models providing they’re still in stock and as everyone says, they do get better with age.

There should also be a fresh stock of Ritchey stems, bars and seatposts on the system today (wednesday) With the ‘wet’ finish featuring heavily and looking very nice.

That’s all I can think of right now, we’re all digging out our arm and leg warmers here with the winter thoroughly beginning, and our site is full of everything you need to get through it.
