A few weeks ago, on June 2nd, the Austin cycling community came together to help out a local racer and bike messenger named Luke, who had broken his wrist in a crash while racing. Beat the Clock Cycling Club threw one of the biggest alleycats I’ve been to here in Texas to raise money to cover his medical bills (yay America!). Local businesses like Flat Track Coffee, The Liberty and Cycleast showed their support and people from all over Texas showed up on a sunny Sunday afternoon to RACE…

Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Kodak Portra 400
If you live in Austin and like to race bikes, this might be your only chance to win a race. Why? Because the dude who always wins races (road, alleycat, ss cross, whatever) is out of commission. Luke Kalloch broke his wrist a few weeks back in a road race and has accumulated a hefty surgery bill. To help him out, Beat the Clock Cycling Club is throwing a benefit race and after-party. Luke is one of the nicest (fast guys) you’ll ever meet, so come out and show your support.
I can guarantee this will be a rad event!
This will be the first year where I won’t be in attendance at the Mash anniversary race. I’m sure Mike and the crew will have more information coming along for the three-year anniversary race on May 5th, but for now, this is all I’ve got.
You’ll just have to sit on their blog til then.

Kyler Martz drew up this sick flier for the Ups & Downs benefit alleycat race in Seattle. All proceeds will go towards Jake Ricker’s medical bills after his wife was attacked by dogs last year.
Mash just posted a great profile on one of their riders, Kyle Murphy. I was at the Mash Twin Peaks Time Trial and the 1 Year Anniversary Alleycat to witness Kyle in action.
Head over to Mash to check it out!
The second annual Mile High Messenger Challenge is coming up on Saturday, February 23rd in Denver, Colorado. Check out more information at the event’s Facebook page.
One of the first alleycats I raced in was Monster Track. At the time, it was one of the most exhilarating experiences I have had. It’s crazy to think that this race is in its 14th year and has influenced alleycats the world over. Check out the details for Monster Track 14 at the Facebook page and pick up one of these Cinelli shirts exclusively at the race.
Colorado seems to be the place to be for alleycats this year. Here’s a video recap from the Boneshaker Winter Alleycat. Don’t miss out on the next race from Denver Chain Chase!
