When DTU athletes will line up on home soil this weekend, they will race in their brand new Castelli short distance race suits that were specifically developed to meet the demands of ITU racing. The weekend in Hamburg features an individual race for men and women on Saturday, plus the mixed relay world championship event on Sunday. It was also agreed to award the individual world championship titles for men and women at Saturday’s race. The German Triathlon Union will be the first national triathlon federation equipped by Castelli. We look forward to the weekend and the coming months towards Tokyo.

With the Olympic games postponed by one year, it’s all about reorganizing a clear course and timetable towards Tokyo. There is at least a small chance that athletes will be able to tackle a few races this fall. The Tokyo race suit is one of the first milestones of this new collaboration. It’s clear that the majority of the preparation is done in training gear. With a strong background in cycling, Castelli leaves nothing to chance when it comes to providing DTU elite athletes with excellent training apparel. As part of  the new partnership,  German amateur triathletes can also race and train in the official DTU x Castelli uniform from now on.

Eddy Merckx, History, News -

One of cycling’s biggest luminary, Eddy Merckx, turns 75 today. Gelukkige verjaardag Eddy !! Merckx turned professional in 1965 with the Solo-Superia team after a successful amateur carrier winning more than 80 victories along with the 1964 World Championships Road race. From there, Merckx would go on to win virtually every major race and Grand Tour event that lay before him. During his career from 1965 to 1978, Merckx proved to be unbeatable, with no fewer than 11 grand tour overall victories. And, upon his retirement, he had racked up a total of 525 wins – netting 445 wins out of the 1585 races he competed in. In 1971 Merckx won 45 percent of the races he started. Come up against Merckx during that season and your chances of victory as a rival rider were as good as halved before you’d even begun. On 25 October 1972, “the Cannibal” set a new hour record at 49.431km in Mexico City wearing a refined aero body-suit made by Amando and his son Maurizio Castelli (branded Vittore Gianni), and a specially constructed Colnago road bike with the same measurements as Merckx’s track bike. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EDDY !! Images: Foto Reporter Sirotti, Castelli image ...
