We did not get many particulars on the time, however it will appear they made it onto this limited-run colorway Outback, and the blues we despatched regarded proper at dwelling!

I have been a Ritchey fan for properly over a decade now, and this inexperienced/yellow colorway of the Breakaway ‘cross frameset continues to be my favourite scheme to date- to me, it evokes Lotus Racing fashion with out being too overstated.
