For 2013, Specialized has introduced a number of new colorways for the Shiv. This matte black S-Works module is absolutely STUNNING. Several bike makers are now producing stealth black or nude carbon schemes, which I think is an absolutely fantastic choice.
The Vegas 70.3 World Championships has become one of the most hotly-contested races in recent years. Last year, the crown went to King Crowie, who became the first person ever to win the 70.3 and 140.6 World Titles in the same year. Tomorrow he and women's champion Melissa Hauschildt (formerly Rollisson) are back to defend their titles amidst stacked fields on both sides. It will be an incredible race to watch. Here's what we saw at the expo, and stay tuned for race-day photos and features tomorrow.
