Allan Iacuone, the peoples choice at the mens national road cycling champs

January 11, 2014

The Aussie mens road champs turned it on today, and with Gerro, Cadel and Porte on the podium - you can't get much better than that!

But we have to send out a huge congratulations out to Allan Iacuone and Adrian Jackson showing true grit finishing the 180km road race in style and panache... we are honoured to have such talented nice guys
rolling around on Curve Carbon wheels.

Alby (Allan) was the peoples choice and managed to stick with the 17 man breakaway for 15 of the 18 laps, even leading the youngens up the hill at one stage - it was unbelievable how many people where screaming out his name on course in support.

You just have to love how Aussies get behind such a great story... what a day!

Here, on the dry plains of the harsh Australian bushland, a single caucasian male of the Dutch tribe is experiencing tumultuous travels along the Big River Road. He, inspired by bike-packing photos and videos of members of different tribes and different lands, realises it's not all that romantic. There are dangers...

Once that air has been let out, they are comfy. On the rough bitumen roads I smiled and wondered how I have ridden the kilometres I have without these tyres or wheel size. There was no jarring or discomfort felt in the hands through the handlebars. By the end of the series I had no issues ie: numb hands or fingers A lot can be said for the bike (Curve Cycling GXR – Kevin of Steel) and setup/posture as well. The tyres provided a comfortable ride but not so comfortable as to give you the feeling of being delicate. Instead they give you a feeling of confidence and reliability.
