Cycling Weekly Verdict

TICCC’s Race Bib Shorts performed well for intense efforts and over longer distances, with a chamois that did a good job at sounding out the road buzz while also supporting the right areas when tucked up in an aerodynamic position. However, the leg grippers felt disproportionality tight compared to the rest of the fabric. If you’re after a quality pair of shorts with environmental credentials, these are a good choice, but just make sure to try them on first.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
