Did you know that Criterium racing began in the United States in the 1920’s, at a time when track racing was extremely popular throughout the country. The USA CRITS website refers to crit racing as “American Street Track Racing”? Or that “Criterium” is worth 13 points in Scrabble and 16 points in Words with Friends?
Head over to Manual for Speed to read more at their introduction to American Criteriums!
So… Manual for Speed realized one thing covering the Vuelta al Pais Vasco: photoz r overz. People just don’t have the patience these days, or the attention span to sit through a gallery anymore. They want motion. They want action but they don’t want videos. Because, videos are boring too.
What did MFS do? They made a GIF documentary and my favorite is the helicopter.
It’s wild, head over to MFS to check it out!
Manual for Speed is absolutely killing it with their 2014 Paris-Roubaix coverage! Check out the coverage at MFSWTCHILLEUR.
In true Manual for Speed fashion that is… Head over to their World Tour page to catch stages 1-5, as well as a look into Team Garmin Sharp’s roster. Seriously, those portraits are too good!
Manual for Speed and Dan Funderburgh re-issued their popular Roubaix cobbles print in a new, frozen color scheme. This time around, the cobbles are frozen.
Pick one up at MFS!
Red Hook Crit is here! Happy face! Put on your happy face. Yes it’s going to be cold, wet and it’s going to suck. Yes, that happy face of yours is going to be sprayed by the fender-less track bike topping upwards of 30mph as you rip through slick corners. Yes, you’re going to fall. Hard. Over people. Yes, you will lose this race you’ve trained all year for.
But, there is good news. Two journalist dudes will be in your face with a camera, making you look cool. Or in this case, one journalist dude who kind of looks like me (Prolly). Or I kind of look like him, because technically, he was born first… Check out Manual For Speed’s Tales from the 2014 Red Hook Crit below!
Cinelli and Chrome have teamed up to form an elite track crit racing team, with quite the impressive roster.
See more photos below, along with the press release.
Look, Manual for Speed isn’t exactly your everyday cycling news or photo site. They’ve clearly transcended that into the world of the weird. Daniel approached the 2014 Red Hook Crit with relatively new eyes and made the connection between it and Critical Mass. Before you get upset, he has some valid points…
You’ve really got to go to Manual for Speed to read the whole story.
The boyz over at Manual for Speed have some restocked their bottles and added new designs to the mix. Head on over to scoop!
So there’s this new sports nutrition service called the Feed. It’s actually kind of genius. You subscribe to a series of “boxes” that contain everything from hydration, to nutrition and recovery supplements. Either purchase their selection, or make your own. Then, each month, a box shows up at your door.
To keep things weird, Manual for Speed did a photoshoot with Dan Chabanov, showcasing his Pro Athlete box. Head over to Manual for Speed to see the in-depth report.
Side note: Both Manual for Speed and myself have boxes on the Feed.
