Feeling the heat: Racing fixed across the globe

Biehler-Il Magistrale is a Dutch fixed gear crit team that has its origin in the highly successful Team Wit. The group of five travels the globe, from Amsterdam to Hamburg, and from Zurich to San Francisco, to not only take part in the most iconic and renown fixed gear crit events, but also, and equally important, to spread the lifestyle that makes the scene the one it is: a pumping and ever-thriving one.

Biehler-Il Magistrale is a Dutch fixed gear crit team that has its origin in the highly successful Team Wit. The group of five travels the globe, from Amsterdam to Hamburg, and from Zurich to San Francisco, to not only take part in the most iconic and renown fixed gear crit events, but also, and equally important, to spread the lifestyle that makes the scene the one it is: a pumping and ever-thriving one.

Scope sponsors the team since its early beginnings. The collaboration has helped us to further develop our already race-proven rim and disc-brake rims and hub. And it keeps us connected to the scene.

Getting started

Fixed gear crits have a unique character and charm. Arguably, they’re also the most accessible of all cycling disciplines if one wants to pick up racing. And probably the most affordable one. From an equipment point of view, one only needs a fixed gear bike, a set of wheels, pedals and a suitable kit and helmet to take to the start of any given midweek crit. From there one can progress through the ranks and also take part in bigger events. It’s easy to see, that, in theory, the effort one needs to make to get started is a lot more uncomplicated in comparison with other cycling disciplines.   

The bike

All of the guys at Biehler-Il Magistrale have started that way. However, their first, relatively inexpensive, race bikes are a far cry from their current ones.

This year the team races custom-made Titici F-RT01 track frames, hand-sprayed by famous Italian painter Tony Spray. To match the outstanding artwork of the frame, we have designed custom decals for the R5 wheels the guys are using.

The bike is further spec’d with Ritchey cockpits, Ere Research saddles and bar tape and Lezyne computers.

The events

Besides a handful of local races, Biehler-Il Magistrale races some of the most iconic events of the international fixed-gear crit calendar. Starting from the Mission Crit in San Francisco, USA, the team also frequently travels abroad in Europe. Having raced the Fixed Nations Cup in Dijon, France, the Waterkant Crit in Hamburg, Germany and the Frit Crit in Lombeek, the Netherlands, this summer, the team recently went to Zurich, Switzerland, to take to the start at the ZuriCrit, as a preparation to challenge the overall of the Dutch crit league in the weeks to come.

Making the difference, tubeless.

No Excuse.
