I think this one is my favorite. It really captures the spirit of competing for your homeland. Check out more from the Women’s team pursuit here and Chris Hoy’s victory on the track here. Great Britain really has the all-star track cycling team.
I awoke this morning to see this article on the NY Times called How to Win: Track Cycling. No less than 30 seconds into the video, the rider slides his foot into a pair of Hold Fast FRS. How cool is that? I know the US team has been using these for some time now. Maybe it’s time for a special edition track racing pair? At any rate, check out the full article on the NY Times Interactive. It’s well worth the watch and read!
I scooped this one off Affinity’s blog. Sinda Jukka is a long-time Affinity supporter and he just sent Jason these photos from an afternoon at the track, where the locals raced to celebrate 60 years of the Käpylä Olympic Velodrome in Helsinki.
Grain is good. See the rest of these lovely photos here!
My girl Kelli is on the cover of the newest issue of Fixed Mag. Keep an eye on your local stockist for issue 12, hitting shops soon!
“Golden Saddle Cyclery hosted an amazing day of races to raise funds for the Encino Velodrome. The races consisted of a 3 category Omnium as well as a separate sprint race. Aside from racing, the highlight would have to be the camaraderie and the amazing food prepared by Todd of Burrito Project fame. Golden Saddle would like to thank the racers, spectators and all of our sponsors who donated prizes to help keep this amazing facility open. A special Thank You goes out to Keiron, of Ride The Black Line, for throwing this great event and allowing us to participate. Make sure to make it out to the rest of the summer series going on through out the months of July and August.
