Party Times at the 2014 Cross Vegas
2014 Cross Vegas

Cross Vegas is the official kick-off for American cyclocross season, in my opinion anyway. It’s raucous, rowdy and best of all, FUN! The highlight of the evening for me is the Wheelers and Dealers event where industry reps and shop peeps battle head to head for a place on the podium next to Craig Etheridge – who wins every year.

The crowd loves it. Everyone’s doing handups, toss ups, spraying beer, hecking and this year, like it does every year, it carried on well into the UCI race. This year’s event drew big names like Lars van der Haar and Sven Nys – maybe you’ve heard of them? At any rate, these pros had an introduction to the party time that is Cross Vegas and yes, things got out of hand.

Thanks to everyone who hung out and made the evening an enjoyable one!

Here’s the first video from the 2014 Red Hook Crit Barcelona, which, by the way, looked like a fun event, especially when rendered in slow motion.

This is one race that I’ve always wanted to attend. The 2014 Red Hook Crit Barcelona looked like a blast from all the Instagram accounts who were in attendance and Father Tu’s photos on Flickr are some of the best that have come across my radar.

Congrats to Julio Padilla on the win!

Another 2014 Red Hook Crit Video

Here’s another great video from the 2014 Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn.

“Heavy rain brought a tense day leading up to this year’s Red Hook Crit. Threats of cancellation and worries of increased danger on the course were relieved when the race finally started, 2 hours before its scheduled time, with a modified course and a shortened number of laps. Nevertheless riders came out in full force to battle the elements and each other.

Now in it’s 7th year, what started out as an informal birthday party for organizer David Trimble has become an international event. Hundreds of competitors from over 20 different countries descend on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook to race on brakeless fixed-gear track bikes, and this year in the rain. The race is fast and intense, with only the strongest and smartest of riders able to overcome the fury and seize the title.”
