I used these gloves exclusively for the USGP race in fort collins. Despite the muddy conditions, I did not crash (phew). The gloves did not fair as well. BOTH of the gloves had multiple holes in them by the end of race weekend!! The stitching is awful and the fingers are simply falling apart. DO NOT BUY these gloves!!
Back to the drawing board Castelli. If you are going to label something CROSS then make sure they are tough enough to fit the bill!
