Adam Seavers and I just threw one of the best Tracklocross races to ever come to Sacramento. Such a great turnout for just a race scrapped together by a couple of kids trying to get their fixed gear community doing a bit more than just riding around spot to spot drinking and doing fixie tricks. (Even though we love fixie tricks)
Tracklomento consisted of a quarter mile dirt trail alongside the American river just right behind the Blue Diamond Almond factory. 10 Laps, 18 riders and a ton of shredding to beheld. Besides all the fun dirt trails and puddles the racers had to bomb through on Track bikes, they also had to maneuver around a gnarly hobo camp towards the end of the course. After awhile the hobos weren’t too happy with us but by then the race was all finished up.
Our winners were: 1st Jean Padilla (TCB Courier), 2nd James Newman (Macaframa), and 3rd Jonathan Jones! It was a vicious battle between Jean and James, as James was first to shoot right through the hole shot and create a huge gap. According to the racers there was a huge crash that held back many competitors and pushed james newman even further away from the pack. The breakaway was held for majority of the race by James, but Jean didn’t let the distance break his focus of winning. Watching Jean hunt down James was marvelous sight as if i was watching a ferocious lion hunting its prey.
You may have caught a couple of these photos on social last week and you’ll surely be seeing more of my dude Devin as he’s the newest addition to the crew here on the site. After a good stint in New York he recently moved back to town and wasted no time getting together the first track only cyclocross race appropriately dubbed Tracklomento. He’s a beast on the bike and just as good behind the lens so expect him to be leaving some rad visuals here in the coming future. Look for a proper intro from him and a few more surprises on the site as we get ready to head into the new year!
After having the North American Handmade Bicycle Show here in Sacramento last year I’m stoked to have it so close yet again. Lovors of love of all types will be on display next March in SLC and you can bet it’ll be worth a quick road trip to take a look. Check the video below then hop over to swoop tickets and start making those travel plans!
After filming from summer ’til fall and finally having time to pick through things, I’ve come across quite a bit of content. Most of this comes from standby time or weekend rides but none the less fun days on the bike…here’s Joey working on some new stuff while we waited for some pickups.
With more than the usual attention to detail it’s no surprise that everyone and their mother loves Campagnolo goods. It is a bit more rare however to come across something as cool as this 57t track/tt ring and matching cranks. Adam snagged these bad boys here in town and though I’d likely not rock them on any of my builds they sure are easy on the eyes…
Now that the Black Friday dust has settled it might be time to really get down to business on your holiday shopping. With seven new kits, tees, Motor Oil bottle and the fresh 365 snap back there’s more than enough to gift from the Heavy Pedal…or keep yourself looking fresh. There’s a few of my favorites after the click but be sure to pop over to see all the new new!
