July 5th

Saturday was a hell of a day getting the first event of The GOLDen Sprints series together. 100+ degree temperatures only made the computer problems, roller issues and lack of some key components that much more to overcome. Luckily with the help of some solid dudes and a hell of a lot of luck the event did go down and only a little bit later than expected. People raced,   beers were guzzled and some awesome prizes made it into the hands of some well deserved sprinters. The next event of the series at the end of July will be so much more dialed and hopefully much cooler that the “Sauna Sprints” as they were dubbed this time around. First time for a lot of people racing on freestyle bikes which was pretty rad to see regardless of the sweat pouring all over them for 3 hours straight.

With the chaos of the day I hardly had time to do anything other than get things running let alone take photos. Luckily there were a few people there taking flicks like the ones from second place finisher Steven Lemos below. Click through for the a little gallery. Results down there too and be on the lookout for info on event #2 of the series that goes down at the end of the month. I believe we had 24 racers which is solid so thanks to everyone who made it out. See ya in a few weeks.

 

1st: Tyler Marchesano

2nd: Steven Lemos

3rd: Tyler Zugar

Huge thanks to all the homies that helped get shit together last minute and the sponsors that got us prizes and bike setups to use. Stoked to be able to keep this going.
