The 2015 Portland Design Works Omnium

The fourth annual PDW Omnium took place on May 30, 2015 at the beautiful Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland. Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of track racing, eating burgers, hot dogs and ice cream floats. Big ups to Clint Culpepper and to all the racers for another successful year of the event.

Merckx Mondays

In my opinion, Merckx still holds the hour record in an era before aerodynamics were a main concern. His Colnago-built Molteni track bike was completely laced out with Pino Morroni drillium componentry to reduce weight and nothing protected the hardened cyclist from a potential collision, save for a Cinelli hairnet. In 1972, Merckx was the man of the hour and his legacy still lives to this day. This video showcases other greats from the Hour Record.

Don’t miss this Merckx Mondays from 2009 and the discussion on the original Merckx Hour Record bike…

Great find, Tracko!
