“We are actually here celebrating my birthday.”

“You missed out. She is not riding her custom one right now.”

Instagram - One bad crash and the result

Instagram – One bad crash a year ago.

Photographer’s notes: The two are hard-core cyclists, riding both road races and cyclo-cross. I went searching for the frame builders and then stumbled across their personal Instagram accounts. If hard core is defined by suntanned legs with clear shorts barriers – and swollen faces from their occasional collisions – then this one makes the grade. This is what can happen when you fall in a sprint.

There is more in yesterday’s post about the two riders in the vignette. Their rides in Brussels, frames and sponsors…
