2010 Cross Season Beckons

Ok, so this ones just coming to an end but I'm already planning for 2010.  Hopefully by September, if the Italians come back from their holidays, the Sidi disco slippers will be here for those of us  in the race team who have sent in shoe sizes.
To further our efforts next season I'm working on a bike sponsor.  Simon's pink VeloCake Velo seemed to cause a bit of attention  so I decided to run with it. 
So, behold... The 2010 VeloCake race team bicycles will be...

taa daah!  


 Thank you Serotta.

Dear Velocake,

I've been a good boy this year, can i have a Serotta ti- max, T-max and steel cross bikes please.

Thnak you, Al.

Simon said...

Santa doesn't reward greedy children and I don't think velocake rewards people who are too lazy to race for us ;-)

Al said...

How dare you!

Which bit of "i eat cake for the team" do you not understand?

I'm going all the way to Italy in the morning to eat cake on your behalf. You don't hear me complaining about the lack of cakey action shown by you so called bicyclists!!

Al ;-)

Simon said...

Enjoy Italy!

I have filled myself with jaffa cakes this evening - perfect race fuel for tomorrow.

trio said...

I love it!

VeloCake said...

would you like one Trio?
you'll have to race under the 'Cake flag though. will you be wanting some team issue Sidi's too?

come......join us......

VeloCake said...

Alan, i know you're in Venice but Serotta have emailed, they'll make a dessert trolly for you out of True Temper tubing.

trio said...

I'd race for anyone who gave me a pink bike, even without cake ;-)

VeloCake said...

okey pokes what size would you like? and would you like some sidi's to go with it?

trio said...

I am short, ride 49cm/50cm bikes. Oh and dancing slippers of course, bet they are not pink ;-)

VeloCake said...

right thats the first one on the way, any other takers?
Trio,they will make the sidi's in pink, but they come with flowery velcro straps, would it be a problem?

Simon said...

Yes please. 52.5cm ett, 2 x bottle cage bosses, mudguard eyelets, clearance for 38mm tyres please.

Size 45 disco slippers just in case the other email went astray.

Ta!

VeloCake said...

Simon, they said the won't make one with "fender mounts dude" and asked why you need two bottle mounts as its for racing one hour cross racing. Then they said something rude and anti british.
Sidi have also writen, apparently they don't do 45 (il sasquatchi, their words not mine)you'll have to bind you feet until they shrink.

Simon said...

The one in the picture has 2 bottle cage mounts ;-)

VeloCake said...

they're not "bottle mounts"
they're for carrying hip flasks and that sort of thing.

Simon said...

Well I have a hip flask cage somewhere :)

trio said...

Flowers can be coped with in pink ;-) Feet are size 38.

Simon you don't need a hipflask for an hour long race!

VeloCake said...

of course he does, it gets cold out there.
