New Personal Best - Asics
We loved the new campaign from Asics & Mind to redefine what people think of as a ‘personal best’. The campaign, ‘New Personal Best’, wants people to focus on how exercise makes them feel, rather than on running stats, encouraging more people to move for their mental health.
Pink, yellow and RED
With the last victory of our friend Sepp Kuss at La Vuelta, SRAM sponsored athletes won every 2023 Grand Tour.
Three colours that mean a lot for every cycling fan.

Girona Hub - A running weekend!
Girona is becoming also a place for the running scene and this weekend we had two great events; Cursa Carrer Nou and the first Gina Backyard Ultra by Klassmark
Cursa Carrer Nou is a great popular race in Girona, unites fast runners and popular ones, a Sunday workout for everyone that wants to do 10K at their best pace. Shame to be a 2x laps loop, maybe someone on the council should level up and do the permits for a proper 10k race.
Gina Backyard instead it was the first edition and what a show! Runners went to Geieg Palau to enjoy this ultra format of running: Runners must consecutively cover the distance of 6,706 km in less than an hour, and every hour starts a new lap until last runner stands. We have been there having fun with the community.
