When we think of Belgium, we envision cobble classics contested in terrible weather where only the toughest cyclists, harden by training for countless hours in brutal conditions, stand a chance of stepping on the podium at the end of the day.

Compared to the original Fenix, the Fenix Disc also h...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
