Dassi Bikes put on a fantastic event this weekend, hosted by the flagship Oakley store in Covent Garden.
There had been qualifiers building up for months and a huge prize for the winner. Obviously I was disappointed to come second... as there are no prizes for second place!
This is obviously a motto that ex pro - Matteo Carrara lives by. A great guy who rode for 12 years as a professional for the likes of Vacan-Soleil. He showed he's still got it with an awesome time on the hill climb.
I guess i'll have to wait a little longer before I get to ride a Dassi on the roads!
Over the past few months, passionate cyclists from companies such as LinkLaters, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, RBS put forward the cream of the crop for the Dassi #citychallenge. Participants were tasked with virtually competing against each other along with Matteo Carrara (former pro-cyclist). Giving it their all, to set the lowest time possible on a 900m hill climb and be crowned King or Queen of the mountain. The ‘mountain goats’ from each qualifying event were then invited to the Grand Final held at the Oakley’s flagship London store, on Friday 11th December.
