To reach the top it helps with a topbike. If it’s a lot of climbing it helps with a light bike. If it’s technical you want tires to trust that is not getting of your rim and you want a fork that helps you as much as it’s possible. But racing at the top you also have to trust your equipment, nothing should make you slower or ruin your results, everything has to work. And it have to fit you.
Ghost Factory Racing Team knows this and Alexandra Engen knows how to perform at right moments. Win win you could say. And this is here bike that helped here to get up to 6th place at the Olympics in London, best result ever what I know.
