Aston Hill DH Race Sponsored by Lezyne

“Over 250 racers signed on and bolted on their new number boards courtesy of Lezyne and hit the start line for just over two hours of practice before racing started at 11:00 sharp. Two race runs with the fastest time to count, all timed by old father time himself, Mike Gettleson of Mikrotime. Head down the track and amazing how many spectators lined the track from start to finish. Come those technical sections ….”

Core77 Features Lezyne Products!

Following our entry mentioning Birzman’s purty bike tools, reader Frank turned us on to Lezyne, a bicycle accessories company that’s just celebrated their 5th birthday last week. Lezyne’s products are borne from “a love for cycling [combined with] a passion for design—exquisitely designed, intelligently engineered, and functionally complete,” says the company, which was started by former triathlete Micki Kozuschek.

Although based in California, Kozuschek originally hails from Germany, explaining Lezyne’s striking, Teutonic aesthetic.

“‘In the old days, everything just worked. It didn’t look great, but it worked. Now some things look great, but they don’t last,’ Kozuschek told Velo News several years ago, when the company began expanding their product range. ‘We’re doing this differently.’ “

Lezyne Signs Remy Absalon for 2012

Remy Absalon

Superhero Enduro rider Remy Absalon signs with Lezyne for the 2012 season. We cannot wait to see where he goes and what he accomplishes this coming year.

Remy Absalon

Remy Absalon is a member of Commencal’s SUPERTEAM and has recently joined up with Lezyne. He is an extremely talented and well-versed enduro racer. He has a staggering list of accomplishments and is without a doubt a top contender in every enduro race that he enters, mixing it up with the likes of Nico Vouilloz, Fabien Barel, Jerome Clementz, Mark Weir, Ross Schnell, and Rene Wildhaber Lezyne couldn’t be happier to work with Remy in 2012 as he will, without a doubt, be putting up some really great numbers and pushing the envelope of what is possibly on and off the bike. The “enduro” race format is gathering so much momentum, especially over in Europe, that Lezyne is proud to be a part of the forward push. We are really excited to see where the sport goes in the future because this style of racing is so inviting to both riders and spectators.

Team UK Youth reveal 2012 kit and sponsors at Gran Canaria Camp and runs Lezyne

Team UK Youth reveal 2012 kit and sponsors at Gran Canaria Camp and runs Lezyne

Team UK Youth have revealed their full team line-up and new kit for the 2012 season at their recent training camp in Gran Canaria and are working with Lezyne tools and tech.

In 2012, the team will ride bespoke bikes from WyndyMilla and take on an increased programme in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world; spreading the message of charity UK Youth further afield.

The team will still be supported and sponsored by Formula 1 world champion Nigel Mansell CBE and headed up by Paris-Roubaix winner and Tour de France rider Magnus Backstedt.

“The camp has been an excellent experience for us,” said Magnus Backstedt. “The team are getting on well, I think we’ve got a strong and very powerful team here for 2012 as we look to race an increased and improved calendar as a UCI Continental team.”

Other key sponsors include Mercedes Benz and Rygor Commercials Ltd, suppliers of the team’s vehicles. Riders are powered by Maxifuel. Their WyndyMilla bikes feature Reynolds wheels, Continental tyres and Speedplay Pedals.

Riders enjoyed the chance to try out their new kit and accessories. The 2012 Team UK Youth team will wear adidas Eye Wear, Bont shoes, Tec helmets and use Lezyne tools and pumps.

Backstedt continued: “Gran Canaria provided a great backdrop for us to train consistently for two weeks, with some stunning and challenging climbs helping us prepare for some of the toughest races this season. The team looks fantastic and we’re just looking forward to representing UK Youth in 2012.”

The new Team UK Youth website has now been launched at www.teamukyouth.co.uk.

Founded in 1911, UK Youth is a leading national youth work charity supporting over 750,000 young people, helping them to raise their aspirations, realise their potential and have their achievements recognised via non-formal, accredited education programmes and activities.
