For us, one of the biggest revelations of the 2018 pro cyclingseason has been that of Astana's Michael Valgren. He started off the seasonwinning one of the first classics at the Omloop and followed it up a few monthslater snagging the notoriously lumpy Ardennes classic in Amstel. We're not surehow much his FRC Astana Team Mid Socks factored in with those victories, butone thing is for certain, you can wear the same socks Valgren wears. These particular versions sport the Astana livery butpossess all of the features that make the FRC Mid Sock some of our favoritefoot covers, particularly its 6. 5-centimeter height for adequate coveragethat's constructed of Meryl Skinlife yarns. This nylon blend yarn not onlydries quickly keeping your feet cooler and less sweaty, they are supremelydurable and possess anti-static and anti-bacterial properties. Its contoureddesign means it fits your feet better contributing to more comfort during thoselong hours in the saddle, with reduced friction and irritation so nothingdistracts you from launching your own race winning move.
