Manual for Speed: Human Athlete Visual Showcase – Team Clif Bar x The Radavist
manualforspeed_2014crossnats_clifhavs-35

It was last Thursday morning, I believe, when Daniel and Emiliano from Manual for Speed hollered hard at me via SMS about doing a Human Athlete Visual Showcase (HAVS) with Team Clif Bar at our house. Bear in mind, there were about 8 people sleeping at my house during Nats, so it was a mess but who can say no to such adorable photographers?

Saturday morning rolled around and promptly at 11am, MFS and Team Clif Bar entered the house, made us all get into skinsuits and began to do their thing. The resulting photos and a short Q&A is now over at Manual for Speed, so go check it out!

Manual for Speed’s 2014 Photo Annual
MFS-FACE-SOFT-COVER-RENDER-1

I’m so stoked on this. I wish more photo-heavy sites did annuals and this one looks so good. Here’s how the guys are describing this book:

“Manual for Speed is about the vibe, man. It’s about the whole deal, the whole spectacle. In fact, if we could do it again we’d call this project Spectacle Of Speed. In support of, and in homage to, the sentiment that Spectacle is our premise, here is a catalog, a typology if you will, of The Best Shit we witnessed in 2014.”

Pre-order at Manual for Speed.

Manual For Speed’s Best of 2014
manualforspeed_usapc14_stage3-14

Yeah, you heard that right. The dynamic duo of cycling anthropologicalisms had one hell of a year and their Best of 2014 post is one of the longest scrolling articles in the history of cycling journalism. It’s like a 2000k brevet on a desktop.

Head over to Manual for Speed to see the whole thing!

Manual for Speed Does Jingle Cross
manualforspeed_jinglecross2-38

Cyclocross is, to me anyway, more visually interesting than road racing, especially when it’s through the lens of Manual for Speed. Jingle Cross lives in infamy for being a really, really, really, cold and tough race, both of which is evident in Manual for Speed’s Part 1 and Part 2 of their coverage… Check it out!

I want to call them crazy, but we already know that. Manual for Speed transcends crazy, like space pandas shooting lasers from their eyes… Kinda like these jerseys, for pre-order now, through November 2nd for a late December, early January delivery.

See more at Manual for Speed.

Manual for Speed Unveils the Space Panda Look Book and Kit
manualforspeed_rftdkit-15

Remember the Manual for Speed “Reach for the Dream” #SurpriseMe kit order that went up a while back? Well, the kits showed up to MFSHQ in Portland and have been shipped out to everyone that ordered one. Look, I know it appears that MFS are on drugs, but I know for certain neither of the conspirators even drink, so that’s not a possibility…

Maybe someone’s spiking their sparkling waters? I have no idea, but whatever the reason, these Space Panda kits are out of this world.

See the entire lookbook at Manual for Speed and no, you can’t order this kit. You missed out on all the pandaemonium.

Wow, just wow. Manual for Speed slays their new 2014 kit with, uh, gradients, duh!

“Manual for Speed and This Is Not Pete Morris met in the one & only place on Planet Earth suitable for showcasing our second-ever Team Kit offering: the Circus Circus in Las Vegas, Nevada. Why the Circus Circus? Well if its not obvious to you now, it will be by the time you’re halfway through this HAVS. Here’s a hint(s): Lights! Color! Action! And An Unfair Advantage! We needed a place that could deliver all that and more, and Circus Circus did just that…”

Pre-order one now at Manual for Speed!
