Following two World Cup seasons of testing by the Santa Cruz Syndicate, the full carbon Santa Cruz V10c is officially ready to roll for 2013. The bike has been refined in dozens of ways, the weight savings are huge, and the strength is still through the roof. Join us on our trip to the small Italian bike village of Massa Vecchia to experience this exciting new bike firsthand. - Photos by Gary Perkin, Brandon Turman, and Sven Martin
