A Fool’s Errand: The RGR in Boulder
Words by Kevin Scott Batchelor, photos by Kevin Scott Batchelor and Jason Paul Stewart
When Jeremy Dunn called me and said Rapha was planning to hold a Gentlemen’s Race in Boulder, I was, plainly, stoked. I’ve always followed the coverage of the other races and hoped we’d have the chance to share our characters and terrain here in Boulder with everyone, too.
And… Here we go!
This one’s a ways off, but don’t miss this year’s Supermarket Street Sweep, one of the largest food drive alleycats!
This looks good!
Morvélo Battle Royale is a unique take on bicycle speedway, using a natural concrete oval in an abandoned old market in central Brighton. Pitching all types of riders and bikes against each other in a series of fast and furious knockout heats. Enter your ‘”gang” as a team of three, pack the ‘Warriors’ style outfit, and make sure you’re not last over the line.
For more details and online entry head to Morvélo.

Here’s another video from the 2014 Red Hook Crit Milano, brought to you by Royal Fixed Gear.
While this is a gallery showcasing the 2014 Cyclocross Scuffle in Elgin, Texas, it’s also a tale of what I believe is one of the best cross courses of the season thus far. Let me preface this by saying most courses in the Austin area are jokingly called “grass crits.” That means, a lot of straight ways, usually 4 – 6, which gives a lot of riders who might not have bike control the upper hand over those who aren’t in prime fitness coming off road season.
As someone who doesn’t race road, but rides a lot of trails on his cross bike, I hate these courses. Even with recent weight loss, I still huff and puff on all the straight aways and tear apart the technical “features.” Meanwhile, it’s the opposite for the fellas who raced road all season and didn’t touch their cross bike all summer…
The Red Hook Crit spawns so many videos and this one’s the first complete recap I’ve seen. Nice job Castelli!

I’ve been looking for some photos to post about the Red Hook Crit Milano and to congratulate my girl Ash Duban for crushing the women’s race. She shared the podium with Eduard Grosu, the winner of the men’s race.
This year’s Red Hook Crit series has been exhilarating to watch. Congrats to everyone who raced in it. Now, go check out all of Francesco’s photos.
I cannot get over how incredible this year’s Trans Provence looks. Seriously, what an incredible event!
Hey Minneapolis, head out to this and wear a damn costume!
Free Fun at Urbocross
Photos and words by Gideon Tsang
Cycling is usually fun, often not free and occasionally funny.
Racing a criterium is not free, usually fun and funny only when an armadillo crosses the road during the race. (True story and a problem isolated to racing in Texas.)
A deep tissue massage is not free or fun but funny as fuck when your Kiwi masseuse tells you farting stories. (Also a true story).
Bike camping is alarmingly fun and almost free. Insert naked cliff jumping and/or mushrooms for funny…
Urbocross is a free and fun four week cyclocross series on the urban trails of Austin, TX thrown by Beat the Clock Cycling Club and CycleEast bike shop. The series ended last week straddling the end of our road racing season and the beginning cross season.
