Out of all the documentation I’ve seen from the Wolfpack Hustle CVCCTR criterium event last Sunday, Samson’s are by far the most diverse and the best representation of the event. I feel like I was there and obviously, I wasn’t.
The track bike criterium is a rapidly-growing event worldwide and over in Berlin, there’s a new fixed gear crit training series called Crucial Crit. Photographer Constantin Gerlach was on site for the first day of racing, documenting it all. See more here!
In the Red Hook Crit coverage here on PiNP, there was a discussion about the young rider who took a nasty spill and was hospitalized. His name is Joshua “Pro” Hardman and he races for Major Taylor Development Team, an amateur race team, based in Brooklyn, NY.
He’s still in the hospital, due to excessive blood loss and needs our help. Head over to Joshua’s Go Fund Me page to find out how you can help out.
Few people know speed like Emiliano Granado. He’s one of cycling’s most creative and compelling photographers, known best from his work with Daniel Pasley on Manual For Speed and Yonder Journal. Emi’s in your face approach to documenting the sport often results in candid, up close and personal portraits in what many would consider the most inopportune time. Don’t expect podium or finish line shots from Manual For Speed because this is the real side of cycling. MFS spends every waking moment with professional cyclists. They know the tricks of the trade and in many ways, this experience makes MFS one of the most authentic resources for those wishing to see what it’s like to truly be PRO.
The Red Hook Crit Navy Yard was quite the race. A quick, technical course awaited over 100 racers and only 5 would finish. All it took was one big spill to split the field and with Neil Bezdek out in front, it seemed the race was determined after the first lap. Kyle Murphy from MASH SF held Bezdek’s wheel, placing him in second and Marc Marino from Team Chica Sexy won in a sprint for third. Everyone I’ve talked to about the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard said it was one of the fastest races they’ve been in. A true exhibition.

Prolly is not Probably started in 2006 in Brooklyn, New York. For over 6 years it has thrived as John Watson, the sole author, documents multiple facets of cycling. With the boom of urban cycling, Prolly is Not Probably has grown to be the number one blog for the culture surrounding it. In recent years, a large push for original content has spawned a steady flow of photosets, profiles and portraits.
Known for his A Day in 10 Photos, Merckx Mondays, Recent Roll, Shop Visits, and Beautiful Bicycles features, John continues to document bicycles of all kinds and his daily life through photos. Over the years, Prolly is Not Probably has been cited in the New York Times, COG Magazine, Urban Velo and other notable publications. In March of 2011, John moved to Austin, Texas where he continues to cover a cross section of cultural influences.
