RPM2: Latest News From the Cylance Pro Team

logo_full_sizeAs an official sponsor and partner with the Cylance Pro Team, RPM² is happy to share what these incredible athletes have been up to. The team has been busy participating in races and traveling across Europe. Following are highlights from their latest endeavors.

 Trofeo Alfredo Binda in Cittiglio, Italy

As the third event in the Cylance Women’s World Tour, the Trofeo Alfredo Finda will feature cyclists Shelley Olds (USA), Rosselaa Ratto (ITA), Alison Tetrick (USA), Sheyla Gutierrez (ESP), Doris Schweizer (SUI), and Rachele Barbieri (ITA).

What makes Trofeo Binda a unique race is its very steep climbs that test even the best climbing cyclists. The race is 123.3km long and its steep, hilly locale is arguably one of the toughest races for professional cyclists, a challenge that the Cylance Team welcomes.

Ronde Van Drenthe

The second Women’s World Tour event was held in the Netherlands. The Ronde Van Drenthe is a 138.3km trek that winds through the hills and climbs of Hoogeveen. Cylance’s Shelley Olds earned a 6th place victory and was the highest-placing cyclist from the United States.

Strade Bianche

The first event of the Cylance Pro World Tour kicked off with the Strade Bianche race. Cylance’s Shelley Olds finished in 17th place. Rosella Ratto earned a 25th place and Sheyla Gutierrrez finished at 44th. Strade Bianche is notoriously difficult. In fact, a third of the competitors were unable to even finish the race. The reason Strade Bianche is so challenging is that the 121km event features 2000m of climbing along with steep and patchy dirt and gravel trails.
