Company Spotlight Video

Though former Swiss national downhill champion Claudio Caluori is a few years removed from competition, bikes still occupy the lion’s share of his time. As if managing the Gstaad-Scott Bikes World Cup Downhill Team, doing his amazing ride-and-describe world cup course previews and helping produce Red Bull’s Crashed Ice downhill speed skating events weren’t enough, the affable Caluori also spearheads Velosolutions—a company that builds pump tracks and bike parks all over Europe.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
