A new Scuderia Film Series from Pinarello, The Depth of Calm, follows cyclist Brennan Wertz and dives into the company’s backstory and dedication to family.

In part one, “The Power of Home,” viewers meet Wertz as he prepares for his first season as a professional gravel rider. Wertz, born and raised in Marin County, California, grew up riding bikes but took a hiatus when he discovered rowing, a sport he pursued through college. When injuries halted his rowing career, though, he returned to cycling. In this film, from The Road West Traveled, we explore Marin County and how Wertz uses his home terrain to train for the upcoming season.
