Tracklocross has been big this season and this edit from Mud Max is easily the most “interesting” take on coverage. Safe to say the Italian fixed scene knows how to have fun…
After sweet tracklocross event here in Sac I knew this SF gathering would be just as fresh. Prior obligations kept me from making it out so this bit from the Turf dudes hit the spot. Good to see some familiar faces out there ripping and the course for this one looked beyond fun. This was a fundraiser for this years Westside Invite in Oakland which is bound to be worth hitting up!
With the holidays and a few birthdays in the rear view at last we’re ready to charge into 2017 full speed ahead. With some new blood on the site of the many things on our plate this year is planning some races. This flick of the recent Conocat Alleycat just got me stoked to get down to business. Click play and stay tuned for some heavy updates from us here!
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.
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!
