If you’re in Austin and want a friendly introduction to cyclocross racing, or you just wanna come out and party, check out the Beat the Clock Cycling and Cycleast Urbocross series. I’ll be there struggling to keep up with you!
See the related articles to the left for last year’s event documentation…
Back in the 90’s Squid threw a themed event called the Warriors race. Just like the movie, it was a team event and took people all over NYC. This year, he brought the event back, in the form of a fun ride and Takuya Sakamoto was there shooting video.
I can’t wait to see more from this!
If you’re planning on racing, you’d better register ASAP. Head over to Red Hook Crit to do so.
Man, it’s a Red Hook Crit morning. Here’s a video showcasing Neil Bezdek and his Rider Cap:
“Neil Bezdek is a bike racer, advocate, commuter, and writer based in New York City. Neil grew up mountain biking on singletrack outside of Denver, Colorado before falling in love with road cycling while attending college in scenic Santa Barbara, California.
After a year-long stint as a bike messenger in New York City, Neil took up road racing and competed professionally for three seasons. Now pursuing a “grown up” career in NYC’s Department of Transportation’s Bike Share Program, Neil still finds time to moonlight as a semi-professional at races across the US while also contributing regularly to Bicycling magazine.
Neil is a four-time winner of the Red Hook Criterium, which we considers his all-time favorite cycling event.”
Pick up a cap at the Cinelli Winged Store.
… and here’s Iride’s coverage!
Man, it’s been a crazy few days and while I settle into posting, I’m going to fire off a few Red Hook Crit videos.
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 a recap from the 2014 NACCC in Minneapolis.
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!
