FRFuggitivi & Giro: Italian Soul!

Custom embroidered FRFuggitivi cap

Yesterday's FRFuggitivi ride was a cold, rain soaked outing but at our well planned coffee stop I proudly handed over two custom FRFfuggitivi caps to Mario and Brian. It came in handy for Brian. He commented on how well the cap - notably the brim protected his eyes from the pelting rain. Not surprisingly, the cycling cap also works extra duty during times of inclement weather keeping the head warm. Our group didn't ride under our typical Italian rules (no riding when raining) but we did ride like hardcore Italian racers. If we were in Italy, I would like to think that the Tifosi would cheer us on. 

Today, the Giro d'ltalia is a rest day before the final week of high mountains (i.e. Stelvio & Zoncolan) ... so let's admire this collection of maglia rosas!

Lately, we have been receiving requests to make custom cycling caps for kids. Tristan (from the UK) contacted us wanting a King Dutch cycling cap for his son, Rory. Depending upon fabric availability,   the smallest custom cycling cap we can make is size XS (19.5" - 21"). Take a look at our shop for the styles offered. Production time usually is about 2 weeks. Rory is the little King Dutch!

As the Giro d'ltalia is in full swing, it's been exciting racing. Tomorrow is the first mountain stage and it promises to shake up the GC. Jenny is wearing our Corsa Rosa and looks to be set to watch stage 8 (we will too)...

Good news: We now have the material, from our supplier, to produce a new batch of Corsa Rosa cycling caps! We should have a new generation of Corsa Rosa caps well before the end of the Giro - check back soon for the re-launch of our popular Corsa Rosa cap!

Whilst our 3-season cycling caps are popular as ever, if you live in the Southern Hemisphere - namely Australia & New Zealand, and winter is approaching - our winter cycling caps are the popular choice. Our Antipodean friends are embracing...

Viva Il Campionissimo!

Viva la Bianchi! Viva Coppi!

Less than a week before the Giro d'ltalia starts May 9 in Belfast. We are getting ready for one of our favorite GTs bracing ourselves for the upcoming fireworks. It will be mountainous - 9 uphill finishes, 5 summit finishes in the high mountains. One rider that symbolizes the Giro is the Il Campionissimo... Fausto Coppi. He is legendary winning the Giro d'ltala five times (1940, 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953). The mountain classification three times (1948, 1949, 1954) and twenty-two stages. Our new Il Campionissimo cycling cap is a tribute to him... the champion of champions.
