The Aero Race Advantage.

For competitive cyclists in the Pacific Northwest, the powerful winds that howl through the Columbia River Gorge are well-known and greatly respected. During a stage race, a smart team will search for any way possible to fight the wind, primarily by team tactics on the road but also by its choice of equipment and apparel. 

Throughout the three-day Cherry Blossom Classic, the Lenovo Amateur Cycling Team could be seen wearing the complete line of Aero Race products offered by the Castelli custom division. Highly-specialized pieces such as the Aero Race Jersey, Bibshort, Glove, and Shoecover were selected by the riders for the clear advantages they provide in windy conditions. Lightweight and close-fitting, all of these products have benefited from rigorous testing in Europe by the Cervélo TestTeam in an attempt to maximize aerodynamics.

On the final day of the race, a criterium in downtown The Dalles, the Lenovo riders took to the streets in their custom Aero Race kits and made an impression with their pro looks. The team delivered strong race results as well, with rider Ian McKissick claiming a win in the time trial that morning before taking third-place overall in the GC at the end of the day.

With professionally-developed race gear by Castelli appearing on cycling teams across the world, more and more customers are demanding premium articles found in the Aero Race line to meet their design and performance expectations.
