INTERBIKE 2015 (#InternationalFixieConvention)

"Interbike isn’t a trade show – it’s an industry experience.", says the website. That experience was good. The experience was in Vegas baby! It was good because not only was there booths and presentations and stuff from groups, organizations, teams, companies, shops, and builders and whatever, but there was also other stuff like the races, video premieres and more other bike stuff as well as stuff that happens in Vegas baby! All of which was, good. This good stuff, altogether created the #InternationalFixieConvention.
Vegas Baby!
This was my first time experiencing the #InternationalFixieConvention. I'd do it again, for sure. (*It's tough to partake in a race after partaking in all of this -- >)The opportunity to  ride super expensive bike on pro trails, do some networking, see all the industry's #NewNew, do Vegas stuff and meet the most elite of the #FixieFamous all in one week was just lovely.

An experience like this just had to be documented. I did so. You're welcome. Film was the format of choice. I'm sorry you had to wait. This set covers most of the trip but some Vegas stuff was intentionally left out (SFW). Click here to digg the photo set
*more photos are on the way...



THIS WHOLE THING WAS JUST AWESOME. I was interviewed by someone at the race. I don't remember most of it because of #adultbeverages but I do remember being asked what I like most about this race series. My answer: The unity. There were all sorts of people from all sorts of places on all kinds of bikes that came together to compete, have fun and just chill. That's a beautiful thing.


Moving along now...The fine folks of KOLO Promo did an awesome job of putting this thing together for a solid 4 weeks back to back to back to back. We appreciate you. It was hot, crazy hot. Working and competing at this event was tough but thankfully there was relief.

Congrats to all of the winners, especially us ^_^ The competition was super stiff. Keep in touch with KOLO Promo. They're sure to be bringing more awesome events. Oh and click here to dig this massive photo set that covers the entire series. You're welcome.






Short'N Sweet MTB-ST Race #2

Ladies and gentleman, this is going to be good. Week 2 of  the Short'N Sweet MTB-ST Race Series is being sponsored by...&$%^#! you guessed it, Ham Cycles! Expect loads of casual vibes, non traditional nourishments, and straight forward encouragement (heckling). It's basically Cyclocross practice. #CrossIsComing



This race is great for spectators and racers of all skill levels. Also, it can be done on a mountain bike as well as a cyclocross bike. Come through, seriously, this Saturday, at 5:30pm. Click here for more details. Click here to save dollars and preregister.

Memorial Park Crits: Week 6

The Memorial Park Criterium Series is well under way. I highly recommend that you come out and spectate or race or both. The races went clockwise this week. That was different.


There were crashes, close calls and a lot of rubbing, touching and squeezing #CritLife. Despite all of that, the team raced well together and finished strong #GoodJobGuise.

We chilled at the races because that's cool, and it feels good. Click HERE to see the photo set and come out this Wednesday if you can!



We raced as a team. That was nice. I took a prime lap. That's rare in the sanctioned crits. We were on our way to a strong team finish. With two laps to go, some jerk couldn't handle his bike and put me into a curb. I chased the pack down and finished 23rd. Besides that, it was fun.

It was the last day of a long week of racing, so to be done was quite a relief. Of course we all stuck around to relax, chill and root for the other racers. Click here to dig the photos.
