Fabrizio Von Nacher has spent several weeks training in Mexico after he competed in the Mexican National Championships, where he placed 2nd. He was able to race, and win, a road race near his home this past weekend. Fabrizio’s family has a rich cycling background and one of the big perks of racing at home is that he can race alongside his dad! We asked Fabi several questions about the race, which landed the teams 17th win of the season!

The course was a technical 6-turn 1km loop with narrow sections and rough pavement.
