“Zak’s racing career began as a courier, competing in local courier races, twice winning the North American Cycle Courier “Track King” title. He segued into racing on the velodrome and worked his way through the ranks quickly.
2011 saw Zak winning the Alpenrose Velodrome Challenge points race, the biggest race of the year at his home track, defeating arch rival Jame Carney. At the Fixed Gear Classic in Blaine, MN, Zak and long time madison partner Dan Harm won the madison, competing against long time Six Day pro Franco Marvulli.
Zak still works occasionally as a courier, but his main focus is on moving up to the next level in his racing career. His dream until not long ago was to race pro six days in Europe…”
“100 bicycle speed freaks will initially race against the clock for ten laps around this mini version of a typical velodrome, usually located in arenas or outside and typically cover about 100,000 square feet. The field will get narrowed down to 32, who will race head-to-head in a bracket style competition- a different kind of March madness.”
The event will be hosted by David Ortiz

Saturday, March 23rd, the Red Bull Mini Drome is heading into NYC, specifically, the old Bushwick Church in Brooklyn. This is the first time the Mini Drome has made it to NYC, so it’s going to be a great night.
I’ve made it half way through this and had to share it. Victoria Pendleton is the definition of a dedicated spokeswoman for cycling. Period. Professional cycling needs more of this and less of Oprah Winfrey. Thanks for sharing Tracko!
