For many of you, cross season is now over and for other’s, there’s maybe one or two events before Louisville. I just wanted to say congrats to all my friends who had stellar performances this year. The Mudfoot team really kicked ass in SoCal and I can only wish them the best of luck next season. Here’s to getting off on the right foot.
When cycling gets coverage in major media outlets, we’re used to see pieces on reckless riding or a death. Not this time. The LA Times has a great feature on Wolfpack Hustle up on their site and if reading ain’t you’re thing, there’s even a video. Check it out here.
This month, both Poler and Cadence have in-store pop up shops at Golden Saddle Cyclery in LA. Check out these two brand’s offerings at the best bar in Silverlake!
See the Cadence flier below.
November and December have been a lot busier than I anticipated. Usually, it’s my time to get back into a daily routine of riding, riding, riding but I found myself traveling more and more these past few weeks. This Recent Roll is a series of snapshots taken in Portland, Austin and Los Angeles during that time. Shot with my Contax G2 and Kodak E100VS. Enjoy.
It’s not everyday that you see a gorgeous Gan Well Pro track bike rolling on the streets of LA. Maybe 5 years ago, but not today. So when the owner of this beauty walked it into Golden Saddle Cyclery, I had to take it out for some photos. Nitto everything, Suntour hubs, Dura Ace cranks and a well-used perforated Flite. More of this please!
*Unfortunately, the owner has to sell it, so if you’re in the market, call GSC for pricing. Please, serious inquiries only!

It’s been real fun hanging out with Jeff from All-City. We raced together, we partied together and even got sick together. Jeff knows how to live the life as the manager of a party brand. But sometimes it gets too much for him to handle. We were supposed to go touring but the urban #campvibes got the best of him.
Don’t worry Salsa, this is an urban adventure. Thanks to Grandpasaurus Rex for the photo.
Beginning any race with a LeMans start is sure to cause a ruckus, but add in a real life “cycling salmon” and things get interesting. This year’s SSCXWC began with a bang. Both the men’s and women’s field showed that you can truly have fun and still be somewhat competitive. From the snot rocket cannons, to the cesspool pit and even the crowd-induced bottle necked course, the racers had to endure a lot more than they bargained for. Oh and mud in SoCal? The cross gods smiled upon LA last Sunday. See for yourself in the gallery.

Adam Craig won the men’s and Mical Dyck won the women’s 2012 SSCXWC. That means one thing: tattoos. Last night, at the The Martlet Tattoo Parlor in Hollywood, they did just that.
Check out more below and expect more updates once I’m over the food poisoning.
Did my first legit cross race today here, shot some photos and had a blast. Here’s a few photos from the little I shot today. Expect a media blast later this week from the 2012 SSCXWC!
We just rode part of this and expect a lot of muddy, hellish fun!
