The Driveway Race Series takes place every Thursday during the spring and summer here in Austin, TX. It’s a super chill spin from downtown, only taking a few minutes by the new Manor trail, a paved bike path that dumps you right at the gates. As part of a review for the Fairdale Goodship, Andre and I went out to the Driveway to shoot the bike, straight from the box to the 75+ field of racers.
While I don’t normally cover criteriums, I took a few minutes to document the races before editing the photos in black and white, something I rarely do as well. The resulting images are rather nice and capture the form of criterium racing.
It really is quite the scene out there at the Driveway, so if you’re ever in town, head on over to check it out on a Thursday night.
Don’t have any 4th plans, but would like to avoid drunken crowds of people searching for fireworks? Maybe you’d prefer to be on a bike ride instead? Live in Portland? Well, if you haven’t heard of the PDX Invitational, this one’s for you.

It’s been a wild ride to watch but the 2015 Trans-Provence ends with a couple of spectacular shots and an ocean-swimming ender.
It’s Friday and the trails are calling. These videos from the 2015 Trans-Provence have me really missing the mountains… Oh and that wallride at the 1:18 mark was so good!
#GetSickDay threw our coverage of the MAVIC® Trans-Provence 2015 off a day. While we were in bed with a cold, these racers were getting sick…
Killer switchbacks and natural pump tracks line the trails for the third day of the MAVIC® Trans Provence. Seriously, I can’t get over how much fun this year’s course looks!
Tulsa Tough is tough, simply put and while it’s a race, it lives in infamy as one of the partiest parties in American Crit Racing. With one hill in particular being the pinnacle of said party. Crybaby Hill is one you won’t soon forgot. If you’ve never been head over to Manual for Speed for a full update!
If you need a reason to be stoked on the Trans Provence, just look at this video’s title image. A mix of old vernacular and modern MTB technology creates this dichotomy of trail stokedness. Or something like that. Just check out the MAVIC® Trans Provence’s Day 02 coverage and look for our boy Ty in the mix!
… oh and happy birthday Gary!
This looks like it’s going to be wild! Red Bull built a figure eight mini drome to hold a night of racing on in NYC. Two racers will battle head to head on a course unlike anything the mini drome events have seen before. You can see a timelapse of the assembly at the Red Bull Instagram and see more details or RSVP at the event page.
