Yes, I’m doing it!
Turin, here I come…

I have written this blog post about my focus on Torino Nice Rally for 2022. To keep me busy I’ve started this kit list and I will probably write a page dedicated to the route as well. If you have any other ideas to keep my mind occupied while I wait, please drop me a line!

Gear

  • Specialized Diverge Carbon Comp 2021
  • Tailfin (with extender) with bungy
  • 2x BBB Feed pouch
  • Apidura toptank – 1L
  • Frontbag with sleeping kit
  • Evoc hip bag with 1.5l bladder
  • To be decided:
  • Apidura mini frame bag vs or full frame bag
  • Mini side panniers… do I need them?
