In Issue 0 we published a picture taken by Brian Hodes of Veloimages of Alex Zanardi, a former Formula 1 driver, Gold medallist and medallist at the World Championships.

Alex has turned career ending injury into new victories. Please take a look at this video:

This is one of those ‘holy s**t’ type cycling videos. A bit like the feeling after watching Rapha’s 1910 video published a couple of years ago. You may recall in 1910, the Tour de France ventured into the big mountains for the first time. The 1910 video exemplified the message of how tough it was to ride the Tour in the early days.

In this video, Mike, with the assistance of Mavic, completes 1,012kms with 21,250metres of elevation in in a riding time of 50 hours 29 minutes (total time 53 hours 38 minutes). Those facts alone make this a compelling video to watch.

Amazing, Mr Cotty.

In this short film, you will meet Nick Geddes. Leukaemia survivor and rider.

Filmmaker, Leo Zuckerman says:

"More than a few late nights and weekends ago, Nick and I set out to make this little film. As an intermittent project, it had it’s challenges, but Nick’s an inspiring dude, and we’ve done our best to represent his story through this short vignette. Enjoy."

We featured the Red Hook Crit 2014 in Issue 3 of Conquista and also the beautiful Neversink race in Issue 4, brought to you by the same organiser.

Below is the video from the Red Hook Crit which is superb. There are so many aspects to this type of racing that are appealing. Firstly, it is off the grid in terms of not being sanctioned by the UCI. The second is the passion of the racers from around the world. Thirdly, it is riding a track bike on a street circuit. Fourth is the camaraderie which is something unique and understood by those of us that love the sport.

Love it.
