We have been involved with the Singlespeed Cyclocross European Championships for a few years now, and its always an event we have fixed in our diaries. Its not exactly a UCI event, but rather a competition for enthusiasts looking for some elbows out, shoulder to shoulder single speed racing.

Our team rider Stefan “Fish” Vis took part on his ARISE, to see what the bike could do on a competitive stage. The bike and Fish share quiet a lot in common: both are like a Swiss Army Knife, tough, dependable and versatile – they won the bronze medal, an achievement that given the competition and the hardware they were riding is a nice achievement.
