The Brooklyn Machine Works Gangsta track was one of the first cross over track bikes that really could adapted for just about any terrain. I remember a few messengers in NYC racing cross on these bikes at Staten Island a few years back. One of those messengers was Austin Horse. Well, he’s still on it. In fact, he raced the Westside Invite in LA a few weeks back before heading over to Japan to race cross and another Red Bull event.
Mmmmmm. Yeah, I’ll go see it. Mostly to see Austin and Tom riding on the big screen.
Premium Rush, the movie that used both Austin Horse and Tom LaMarche for stunt doubles, is spinning up to its August 24th premiere. Check out all the goodies here. Look, we all know the story line blows but it’ll be pretty rad seeing a movie like this on the big screen (or a torrent).
Austin Horse worked on this event with Red Bull for the 2012 NACCC. This art-based alleycat features 5 artists, all messenger photographers. All have contributed pieces to the
event, themed on the way of the bike. The photographs are from various messengers, around the world. These photos have been divided into 6 pieces and each piece goes to a different checkpoint.
The event begins from inside the empty walls of the gallery, where the riders rush out to the first checkpoint and collect the first piece. Then the second and so on.
