ibis mojo hd 2010 full suspension mountain bike 1   Ibis Mojo HD 2010 Full Suspension Mountain Bike

The Ibis Mojo HD 2010 is the older brother to the Mojo and Mojo SL, due to the 160mm of rear wheel travel, 20mm more than the other Ibis Mojo’s. Ibis Mojo HD 2010 Full Suspension Mountain Bike is constructed of carbon, and was first introduced in 2005, but the HD for 2010 allows riders to have another level of skill and to tear up whatever the mountains throw at you. The Ibis Mojo HD frame only weighs 6.3 pounds, which is a half pound more than the Mojo. Two different geometry setups are available depending if you want 160mm or 180mm of travel, and much like the previous models, the HD utilizes new molds and layups for the front triangle and swingarm. Comes in white, matte black and clear carbon finish with the links featuring red, blue and black and a more…

Robbie McEwen Satisfied With His Return to Racing

Cyclist Robbie McEwen is the most successful sprinter in Australian cycling history, with 12 Tour de France stage victories, he’s a former Australian road champion, all in a career which began back in 1996. However, his 2009 career saw more recovery than racing, after he hit a street sign at the Tour of Belgium in May, which fractured his shinbone and tore through ligaments in his leg. “It’s on my mind 24/7,” he said. “Every time I do something with it, whether I’m getting out of bed, sitting on the ergo or out on the road doing a sprint, I’m constantly thinking about how my knee is feeling. It’s the same today; I’m seeing how it feels using big gears, small gears. It’s just something that’s unavoidable. It felt good, no pain, no stiffness, so I think with a few more races in it, it will just…

German cyclist Sebastian Lang is less than satisfied with his performance last year, he stated at Omega Pharma-Lotto‘s training camp in Benicassim, Spain in the middle of December. He first moved to Silence-Lotto in 2008, his first move of his eight-year career. “After seven years with Gerolsteiner the change to the Belgian team was good for my motivation. Despite illness and a number of falls, I repeatedly had the inner drive to get me to work my way out of any lows,” Lang said on his personal Website. “Yet, the disruptions have greatly influenced the entire year. Even if, as a new rider, I was able to go to the team’s most important races of the year, the Tour of Flanders and the Tour de France, I am not happy with my season. I did not manage to demonstrate my time trial ability or produce a…

Michael Rogers Wants Australian National Road Race Title

michael rogers wants australian national road race title   Michael Rogers Wants Australian National Road Race Title

Australian cyclist Michael Rogers wants to take a break from time trials, and has his sights set on winning the Australian national road race on January 10th as his first goal of the season. He wants the title so bad that he will not be defending his national time trial title, so he can focus only on the road race. Columbia-HTC teammates Matt Goss and Leigh Howard will be joining him at the race. “It’s a very tough course, not overly long but long enough, and although there’s just the one climb, we do it 16 times and it’s usually very hot, too. It’ll be a race of attrition. For the Australian amateurs, the nationals are their last event of the season and they’re all in great shape, so it’s very hard to control. And of course, if they beat the professionals they get a lot…

Omega Pharma-Lotto opens up the new year with a new name, among other things. They also got a new Website, for even more freshness in the new year. They have adopted the full name of their co-sponsor, Omega Pharma, in hopes to publicize the company rather than its products. General manager Geert Coeman said that the team got off to a “a (rather too) slow start” last season, but eventually got rolling in the right direction. With Cadel Evans leaving the team, Jurgen Van den Broek will be the go-to man for the Grand Tours, with help from newcomer Daniel Moreno. Looking back on last year, Sports Manager Marc Sergeant said that 2009 “brought us all sorts of miseries and problems as well as disillusions by results and by men, but I prefer to remember the fantastic moments we lived through our riders.”…
