Ride BMX’s Texas Toast Coverage

There was just too much going on this weekend in Austin for me to make it out to Texas Toast. Luckily for all of us though, Ride BMX was out with their video crew, capturing all the highlights. Here’s street finals…

Morvélo Battle Royale

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.

Lino Messori

This is a great video profile on a frame builder many of us have never even heard of. Myself included…

“Lino Messori said of himself “I am nobody, but I did a bit of everything”.
Born in 1926, in Modena, Italy, Lino quickly became a local fixture both for his incomparable skills and his personality.

A master frame builder who also followed a myriad of different passions, spanning from singing with opera legend Luciano Pavarotti to never losing a single boxing match.
Lino Messori made 150 bespoke bikes over the span of his career, many of which were very special for the time and still today.”

The Cyclist Philosopher

I really enjoyed this one. Here’s some background:

“For Andy Duncan, cycling means freedom and life without it is hard to imagine. As a Scotsman and philosopher who stood at the frontier of bike messengering in the Netherlands his affection for cycling stem from the 225.000 km he travelled through the streets and suburbs of Utrecht during the last 22 years. Two years ago Andy was diagnosed with an aggressive prostatic cancer and was told he had only three years to live. We met Andy just before he moved back to Scotland. Surrounded by moving boxes, he was working on his last bike – battered, but resilient and very much in love.”

Some Austin Cross Racing

This video is from opening weekend here in Texas, at the Six-Shooter. In years past, it’s been a lot of fun. This year, I was out of town at a wedding, so I missed out. There’s lots of mayhem at the barriers in this one. Not to mention Tristan’s barrier beef as the last clip…

A Dangerous Commute

No matter how often we complain about drivers or our roads, always remember, there are some with it much worse.
