Our friend Clem Shovel will be lining up on the start line of this year’s Transcontinental race and representing Bombtrack. Clem is an experienced rider across many disciplines but this will be his most challenging event so far. He will be riding one of our new models for 2016 called the “Audax“. It is perfectly suited to this kind of endurance event, with a more comfortable long-distance riding geometry, 28c tires, rack mounts and of course a compliant steel frame.

Few weeks ago Clem came to our office in Cologne to pick up the bike and ride it back to his home in Lille, France, its all training at the end of the day. We kept him company and filmed his day of preparation, his very own “Prologue” for the soon approaching 12-day race from Belgium to Turkey.
