It has often been said, the best way to see a country is to ride a bike through it. So when the invitation came from Rapha to take part in their Oslo Prestige event, we rsvp’ed straight away. It was an excellent opportunity to get an up-close, personal look at this majestic land far up north. We invited some friends and customers to join us on one of the two ENVE teams in the field. Included was Tour de France stage winner Edvald Boasson Hagen of the ENVE sponsored pro road team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung and 2x World FMX Champion Ailo Gaup joined us as well on the 165km adventure around the wooded roads that surround Oslo. In total, 26 teams of four took to the course and were treated to epic views and weather conditions along the route. It was inspiring to see so many kindred cycling souls out on the road and we enjoyed many conversations with the locals as they gladly shared their knowledge about many of the sights along the way. It was an adventure we will not soon forget.
