The Radavist Labs and Product Testing
Andre-1

One of the things I’m trying to do here at the Radavist is get more people’s voices in the day to day content. That includes product testing, specifically bikes. This afternoon, I pulled my intern Andre out to some trails to rip on the Wraith Paycheck disc cyclocross bike.

Let’s just say, he didn’t complain! More to come…

Wednesday Night ‘Cross Practice on Randall’s Island – Chris Lee

Wednesday Night ‘Cross Practice on Randall’s Island, New York City
Photos and interview by Chris Lee

Ride over to soccer field 70 on Randall’s Island in New York City around 7 pm on a Wednesday and you’ll be met with bikes rolling around in grass and dirt, someone yelling “come on you can do it!” and a group of 15 or so racers running drills around cones and trees. This is the home of the weekly ‘cross practices in New York City.

Evan Murphy, a cat 2 cyclocross racer, runs these weekly practices with his teammate, Kyle Murphy, a cat 1 racer, every Wednesday on Randall’s Island. The Murphy “Brothers” bring cones and homemade barriers to run drills and mock races. These practices not only build the skills needed to become a better racer but also helps build a community of racers in a city and in a sport where stepping out of your comfort zone is the name of the game.

Where Did Summer Go?
EndOfSummer

I’ve been trying to pull together a Gallery from all of the summer road trips (and rolls of film) shot this year, but am waiting for the weather to get much worse. Although, it seems everyone’s dealing with record lows.

Regardless, looking at photos like this make me miss sun burns and late sunsets…

Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Kodak Porta 400

We Wait All Year for This, Right?
The 2014 ATX CX Cup

“Cross is coming” “Cross is coming”.

All year, we wait for cross reason. Truthfully, it’s the only racing I actively seek out. Sure, if there’s a MTB race nearby, I’m not going to say no, but cross is the only form of racing I truly love.

CX-3

… and it’s finally feeling like cross season. Embrocation, thermal jerseys and good gloves. Ok, it was only in the mid 30’s yesterday but it still felt cold!

Jeff has been shooting a ton of cross races this year and posting them up on Bike Jerks (yes, I pay attention to you, Jeff!) and this one photo struck me as such a rad ‘cross photo. Handups are not a crime!

I hope everyone has a blast racing this weekend.

“People like to use ADD as a crutch, I think it’s a blessing.” -Jeff Tiedeken

This year, at the Red Bull Rampage, Jeff from Monkey Likes Shiny supplied the trophies. If you recall, Jeff made that super slick gravity bike a few years back. PinkBike has a nice story up of Jeff that you should check out for some insight into how Jeff’s hyper creative mind works.
