Manual for Speed is unmatched when it comes to documenting behind the scenes randomness within professional cycling. Their latest in the American Criteriums series is on Housing. Head to MFS for more!
This is the video Brian Vernor made, documenting both the Argonaut disc gravel racer and the Rouge Roubaix. We were in St. Francisville for three days, where Brian and I did our best to document the bikes in action, before and during the race. His interviews offer insight into what makes the Rouge Roubaix tick, while opening up the personalities of the race officials and local vernacular.
Let’s just say he captured it all perfectly and it was an honor to work next to him that weekend!
I really love the special edition jerseys that Rapha produces, especially when it’s for a man like Marco “the Pirate” Pantani. Now, Pantani was by no means a saint, but as a key figure in professional cycling’s history, Rapha is commemorating him by donating proceeds from the sales of this jersey to the Pantani Foundation.
Pick one up at Rapha and check out more details below!
Manual for Speed continues their coverage of American Criteriums with an interview of Evan Murphy, a favorite of mine! See the full story at Manual for Speed.
No controversy here… just a drug-free, three time Tour de France champion fixing a flat at NYC Velo in Manhattan!
I’m gonna have to try that pizza hand up…
Oh yeah… there’s a video for this project too!
Is it wrong to think that there aren’t many pros who would do something like this? Or at least, we wouldn’t read about it. This story is so good:
“It’s easy to get wrapped up in the details when it comes to cycling. Distances, wattages, victories and other measures often lead us to forget the simply joy of riding a bike. Brothers Gus and Lachlan Morton (yes, the one who races with WorldTour team Garmin-Sharp), got back to basics in an attempt to recover the lost magic of the sport. This is their story about the 2500km journey from Port Macquarie to Uluru in just twelve days.”

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?

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!
