When it comes to the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, I know where to go for photos: British Cycling. Each year they offer up a selection of moments from the weekend’s event that are too good to pass up. See more at the British Cycling Flickr.
One day I’d love to shoot photos at this event.
Cheetah, the documentary on Nelson Vails, is having a world premiere in NYC this Saturday. Pick up tickets here. See the Pennsylvania premiere flier below.
Yet another Milliman for Stoemper, featuring Guy East in Rotterdam!
On top of my photos from the TXCX State Championships, I’ve really enjoyed flipping through the UK Track Cycling Flickr account tonight. Head over for more! So inspiring.
… never get the attention or recognition they deserve.

How does Tracko find this stuff? Chev’s photos of the Gent Six Day Race in t’Kuipke, Belgium are so good, they needed to be re-posted here. See the full 35mm black and white set here!

The one, of many reasons why I love Rock Lobster Cycles is Paul’s ability to make even a utilitarian, race machine sexy. All in house. Now, I call this utilitarian but in reality, it’s more of a rarity. The tubeset used in this bike was developed by Easton over ten years ago and never went into production. A special tubeset for a special racer: Aaron Bradford. Leave it to Vernor to capture this bike in a way that even makes me look at the way I photograph bicycles! See the rest here.
Well, Guy East goes to the Six Day in Amsterdam on his Stoemper. Oh and he wins the derny race! I love short and sweet videos.

When I saw this on Crihs’ Instagram from the Bicycle Film Festival‘s Joy Ride art show in Mexico City, I had to get a higher res photo for Merckx Mondays. Luckily, Doug D was there and shot a proper photo. I’m so stoked on this piece and if I had the wall space, I’d try to purchase it from the artist! Here’s the scoop:
Materials: wood and acrylic paint
“This piece is based on Eddy Merckx’s hour record done in Mexico’s Agustin Melgar velodrome in 1972. The name of the piece comes exactly from that: 148 laps and fraction that he did to complete the record. The rasterized image is carved on wood pieces with the regalement size for velodromes. Also the colour lines are official except that the cuerda line is red instead of black just as it was back then.
Generally in my work I use a contrast between antique techniques and new concepts. That’s what gives all my work a discursive character. In this case this piece was specially made for the Joy Ride art show of the Bicycle Film Festival Mexico.”
So rad! Speaking of art pieces, Tracko came across this eBay auction!
