TONIGHT IN LOS ANGELES


I’m proud to lend support and be a part of the Wolfpack Hustle Midnight Drag Race. Tonight, over 200 racers will sprint down the 2nd Street Tunnel in Downtown Los Angeles. The fastest 16 times (in each the women’s and men’s categories) will advance to a elimination tournament of head-to-head drag races. I’ll be there tonight making sure that all the racing goes down smoothly. This is going to be an epicly proportioned event with lots of vendors, exhibitors, sponsors and races filling up the entire tunnel with excitement. Don’t miss it.

Tons more details are over at Wolfpack Hustle.

SEAN MARTIN FOR AFFINITY CYCLES


My friend who runs TOLA and rides for CBNC laments his broken Affinity Lo Pro frame. Good thing he’s getting a brand new Kissena! Sean’s been killing it at the track during my Intro To Track Racing class lately and I hope to see his new frame rolling around the surface of Encino Velodrome soon.

MACAFRAMA x RED BULLETIN: ROADBLOCK!


Macaframa just droppped this rad video on my pal Roadblock and the Wolfpack Hustle Ride. Roadblock is like the godfather of urban bike culture around these parts so pay attention. If I remember correctly, I think he started Wolfpack Hustle almost seven years ago now and it’s nice to see a little credit finally come back to where it’s due.

GET THE MESSAGE


Been working around the world lately and this week I find myself touching down in New York City. So I’ve been riding around these streets remembering how New York messenger culture first got me into track bikes when I was hanging around here over a decade ago. It’s funny to think about how track racing influenced this generation of messengers who had a huge influence on me and my generation of track racers. I guess all that shit has to come around full circle. When you have a minute, sit down and watch this video. Consider it a history lesson.

This post is dedicated to my old friend Jayse — an ex-messenger I used to live with in Portland who introduced me to riding fixed gear. I don’t know where you are now but I hope you’re well and doing good things.

Thanks to John Prolly for posting.
