Here is part four of our series of videos from Dr. Max Testa’s talk at our Greenwich Studio’s Passoni Bicycles introduction event. In this portion of Dr. Testa’s talk, he covers muscle coordination and pedaling efficiency, and how outright muscular strength is not such a great thing if those muscles are not coordinated in their firing sequence.
This is the second video in our series from Dr. Max Testa’s visit to our Greenwich studio. Andy Hampsten, ’88 Giro d’Italia, early sports science in the Pro Peloton … this is all great stuff!
As posted on Team Rockstar News …
We are thrilled to welcome the Gotham Girls Racing Team to Team Rockstar Games / Signature Cycles for 2012. This will be the first time that Team Rockstar Games / Signature Cycles has fielded a full women’s squad. We are happy to see our team grow in 2012, but we are particularly pleased to be able to support such a strong women’s racing team. As a CRCA sub-team, the team will be a constant presence at races in and around New York City, as well as traveling to larger regional events. We will be sharing their racing exploits right here so stay tuned throughout the season!
Read on for the press release by the Gotham Girls, and check out their website.
January 9, 2012 – Gotham Girls Racing, an amateur all-women cycling team, has joined forces with Signature Cycles and Rockstar Games to form a new women’s racing team in 2012. The team, racing as Rockstar Games/Signature Cycles, as a sub-team of the Century Road Club Association (CRCA), will compete in local club races as well as some of the premier races in the Northeast, including the Harlem Skyscraper Criterium, Tour of the Battenkill, Killington Stage Race, Tour de Millersburg and the Green Mountain Stage Race.
As part of our special event on both Monday and Tuesday of next week, which features Passoni Custom Bicycles and Dr. Max Testa as our featured speaker, we have extended the Italian theme throughout the evening.
The Study Fine Wines will be pouring Italian wine and prosecco for us during the event.
All in all, we think it’s going to be a fantastic event and we hope you can make it.

The reality is that we live in a fast paced city. We often get too caught up in the daily rush to slow down and just enjoy the ride. We choose the “ordinary” local rides, rarely exploring some of the great rides the NYC area can truly offer. In 2007, Rapha created the Continental program with one goal in mind: travel this incredible country and find roads seldom ridden, explore some of the little known wonders and some hidden gems in our own backyards.
