new UK team to race on 'steel', possibly be 'real'

Madison Genesis Road Team Announced - News - Genesis Bikes

Genesis and Reynolds to collaborate on 953-tubed frames that’ll be light and tough enough for pro use. Hope they go the mirror polished route rather than painting them, a team on a fleet of those would look pretty badcore.

FWIW, Richard Sachs cx team ride on his steel frames. They seem to do ok, atmo.

As do the vanilla/speedvagen and geekhouse teams.

I’m pretty sure Molly Cameron won a couple of PDX Cross Crusades on her vanilla too.
