Our friend, all-around cyclist, and veteran crit rider Marco Sartori has outfitted a Stelbel Ortica for the upcoming Red Hook Criterium races this coming September in Barcelona and in Milan this October. Like all Stelbel frames, the Stelbel Ortica is custom-made to order. This particular Ortica is the perfect balance between wheelbase and bottom bracket height, just right for racing track bike criterium.
With the skill level increasing exponentially each year, Marco hopes to be able to pass qualifiers, and be able to participate in the final race. Like most crit riders, Marco’s main aspiration is to survive the fast-paced mayhem that makes the RHC so exciting. Check out the shots of Marco on a test ride just outside Torino. We wish him the best of luck this year in Barcelona and Milan.
