Race Tech from the SF Twilight Criterium

Martina Patella's VAC Blue team bike:
Interesting to note - Blue didn't set up all the riders with a full carbon bike. That's not to say it wasn't offered. Notice the carbon TRP brake calipers.

A Team Cliff Bar bike:
So, the interesting thing here was that a one of the Team Cliff Bar guys was walking down the street with a non Orbea bike (looked like a TIG welded aluminum frame) painted black with white block lettering that said "ORBEA" that looks like it had been printed out on a laser jet and cut out with an hobby knife. It would be interesting to hear the story behind racers that get sponsored gear but choose something else and then have to cover it up.
