F5 Pista Custom : Tony

For those that don’t know, Tony was our first workshop assistant hire back in 2011. He built himself this wicked F5 Pista custom with chrome lugs, deep metallic purple tubes and glossy black decals. Paired with some serious kit, he’s been riding this bike everyday for 3 years.

The checkpoints for the race were released just 30 minutes before the start and about 130 people participated. Overall distance covered was about 40km. Six checkpoints with a seventh hidden checkpoint. To find the hidden checkpoint, all other checkpoints had to be reached and then a final package had to be collected and delivered to the hidden checkpoint and then back to the start. Factory Five took 1st, 2nd and 4th in the non-local categories.
