>Paris-Roubaix went really well for us. While we were were a place short of the podium, Martijn Maaskant rode brilliantly and with the support of the whole Slip/Chip squad, put together one of the team’s best rides of the year. There is no doubt this team is the real deal.
Just to give you a little example of how committed Jim and his crew is, for Paris – Roubaix Jim asked me what I needed to be competitive and I gave him the outlines for what is the perfect cobblestone bike and unfortunately for Jim he didn’t have a frame with that kind of geometry in stock, but he gave me his word that he would find a solution to it. He did have his fair share of work to get it done but no job seems to be too difficult for these guys. The result: a bike built exactly the way I wanted and a few little extras thrown in.
The new F1 Sprint is the first full carbon bike that I have ever been able to ride. It is the lightest stiffest most responsive bike that I have been on.
Most people say that if it works for me then it should be fine for pretty much everyone….. well it works for me! I put out about 2000 watts when I’m sprinting, so unless your beating that then you should be fine, if you are? Then I’ll give you Jonathan’s phone number. I look forward to you leading me out.”
