Chas and Lucas ride the Tour d’Afrique

This was an incredible opportunity for everyone involved. The Tour d’Afrique brought Lucas and Chas out to showcase just how insane/beautiful this annual adventure really is. Watch the video, sign up, and you could be doing this next year!


From Cinelli:

“Lucas Brunelle Goes to Africa” movie has been produced by CINELLI and edited by Benny Zenga.
Filmed by Lucas Brunelle while riding the new #BootlegHobo Cinelli bikes through the 1700km of the legendary Diamond Coast route, final stage of the Tour d’Afrique!

Hobo is a totally new steel bicycle, engineered and equipped for off-road rides on long distances. The
Tour d’Afrique has been an incredible test for our new bike as well as an outstanding way to announce Hobo to the world!

With such a cast a short introduction about our friends spotted in the video is a must!
Chas Christiansen, 100% pure San Francisco, is one of the top riders of the Cinelli Mash Team, iconic figure of the fixed-gear culture, always on the highest steps of Criteriums, Alleycats and Cyclo-Cross Single-Speed races podiums.
Lucas Brunelle is the famous video-maker who introduced the first-person point-of-view shooting technique in cycling races thanks to his great riding skills and the innovative helmet-integrated cameras-system with which is filming and reporting the most extreme race contests all over the globe since more than ten years.
Last but not least, Dario Toso couldn’t miss, explorer of the contemporary, historical ambassador of the “Bootleg State of Mind”.
