Mark Heithoff takes the bronze medal at the NY State Cyclocross Championships, held on Saturday November 13th, 2011 at Wolfes Pond Park on Staten Island. Dry conditions on a fast and technical course made for challenging racing and Mark came home with some hardware. Nice work!
With the 2011 season wrapping up, we want to give fans an inside look to see the incredible racing machines the team has been using this year.
The Parlee Z5 represents the the most advanced carbon fiber road bicycle available in 2011. Based on 10 years of refinement and evolution from Beverly, MA based carbon fiber experts, Parlee Cycles, the Z5 is one of the lightest bicycles available yet possesses amazing performance and all-day comfort. Available from the factory with custom, personalized paint designs and one of a kind builds, the Z5 defines what a great road racing bike should be. Light, strong, efficient, comfortable; the Z5 is a performance bicycle without compromise.
The special paint jobs were done in house at Parlee in Beverly Massachusetts. Just like our team kits, the bikes were painted a stealthy black, with slight white and pink accents.
We had Rockstar Games Logos painted on both the seat tube and fork, and Signature Cycles logos on top tube. Each team member was able to hand pick the various components (drivetrain, handlebars, etc.) that would be used for the final product. Some of these components included Shimano Di2 Electronic Shifting Systems, Aerodynamic Carbon Wheels, Michelin Racing Tires, and Ceramic Bearing Upgrades.
If you want to get a chance to see these bikes and their riders in person, check back to see where Team Rockstar Games x Signature Cycles will be during the 2012 racing season!
