Shawn from King Kog was over in Japan, visiting the home of Kinfolk frames. After visiting Kusaka San, the builder of Kinfolk, he was joined by the Kinfolk Japan team to partake in a cross race. Bob Woods shot some photos of this race, which you can see at his Flickr.
Looks like a fun race!
KVLT in Göteborg: the 2014 Svart Katt
Words and photos by Johan Björklund
Svart Katt is an alley cat race through the darkest corners of Göteborg where the riders look for as many checkpoints and solve questions scavenger hunt style with the help of a map and a manifest during the cold and dark night. You could say it’s a sightseeing tour in the twilight zone.
I think this year set a record for Red Hook Crit videos!
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.
