“This film, produced by Rapha and Ben Ingham, is about two of America’s finest and most inspiring road racers, Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter-Phinney. For anyone who saw them race, Davis and Connie came to represent the best in American road racing, combining bold racing with uncompromising attitudes on and off the bike. Their careers saw them move from domination of domestic races to international and Olympic success…”
Here’s a recap from the 2014 NACCC in Minneapolis.

Woah! In 2006, Kozo Sugino invited Mo from Keirin Berlin to check out all that Japan had to offer in terms of NJS framebuilders. He went to Osaka to meet the amazing Nagasawa-San, then the late Doi-San of Ganwell Pro before visiting the Sugino factory to meet with Kozo Sugino.
Finally, he headed up to Shuzenji to see the Keirin school and further up north with the Shinkansen to Tokyo to see MKS, Nitto and meet Tanabe-San at Kalavinka.
This looks like an insane trip!

If you missed this one when it aired, you can now watch it online, for free.
… but we knew that already, right? This is a great video!

As Shaun finds, sometimes, the ride is more important than the win and now he’s returning to ride for Intense.
Here’s a video from Japan – man I miss riding there – featuring Chrome’s new team. There are a few familiar faces in this one!
This one’s well worth the watch. Head over to the Vimeo page for all the details.
