SUMMER RACE SERIES: PEDALER’S WEST 500 


These are just a few of the faces who showed up to race in the Pedaler’s West 500 last night at Encino Velodrome. Every rider has been top notch and the spectators ain’t afraid to cheer them on. With three out of six events down, I couldn’t be happier with how this year’s Summer Race Series is going. Big thanks go out to all the racers for sweating it out, the crowd for yelling it out and of course our awesome sponsors for handing it out.

RIDE THE BLACK LINE SUMMER RACE SERIES 2012 

Yes, it’s been pretty quiet around here the past few weeks.  Unfortunately, the internet has had to take few steps down on my priority list with everything going on in my life this year (I’m getting married!) so blogging has been a little slow non-existent.

That said, we’ve been working hard at putting together another fast and furious Summer Race Series at the legendary Encino Velodrome — and I’m super excited about it!

Once again we have been teaming up with some of our favorite bike shops in Los Angeles to bring a unique and special track racing event every other Wednesday night from June 27th to September 5th.  Expect to see some great racing, awesome prizes and all around good times.

Details on each event will be coming shortly.  Just click the banner in the upper right corner of this page for further announcements, flyers, recaps and results.  Stay tuned and SPREAD THE WORD!

SUMMER RACE SERIES - PRE-RECAP / THE CRAWL


Well I’m in the middle of one of my heaviest work weeks of the year at my “real job” so I haven’t been able to post much lately. I will be trying to catch up on everything over the weekend. I promise!

In the meantime, the Golden Saddle Grand Prix last Wednesday was nothing short of AMAZING. We had over 60 racers and almost 200 spectators at Encino Velodrome and everyone had a great time. The races were fast and exciting, the grill was serving up delicious food and there were tons of prizes going out to both racers and spectators who bought raffle tickets. The boys at Golden Saddle Cyclery really hooked it up and made this an event to remember. Their raffle alone raised nearly $1200 for the velodrome! We are all astounded at how the event turned out and want to give a huge thanks to everyone who came out to support. I will have a full race recap coming shortly plus lots of photos.

This video was the Crawl Race between all the sprinters who didn’t qualify for the tournament. They had about two minutes before they were allowed to cross the finish line and then it was a one-lap sprint for the win. Thanks to Pat Benson for filming.

If you weren’t able to make it out last Wednesday, you can still show your support by grabbing a Save The Track Bike t-shirt available in BLACK or WHITE.
