To stand out on today’s criterium scene La Petit Course tightened things up for an interesting track. Locals and international riders took to “The Little Course” for a fast paced day of racing in Paris. Digging this one…
“We wanted to offer Paris the Crit she deserved. Offer a race that would meet the high-expectations of fixed-gear fans, but also introduce this truly unique discipline to newcomers as well. Our ambition was to offer the most beautiful race to the most beautiful city in the world (we are Parisians after all…). A spectacular event, yet responsible. The road is long, and this objective tremendously difficult to achieve, when we look at all the amazing Crits taking place all over the world today. However, in all thanks to you, this first edition of La Petite Course was a true success. A huge thanks to everybody.”
When you love nothing more than riding few jobs fit the bill as well as being a bike messenger. Fuego, a 37 year ole Parisian messenger, embodies this more than most as he traverses the capitol city day in and out. Not sure how “waterproof” a pair of vans can be but I’d be lying if I said this didn’t get me wanting to test out some of the MTN editions this season. Some great visuals from around Paris no matter what!
East London Fixed with a little motivation as the weekend creeps up. Digging the GoPro placement on this one as crew member Charles Nicholson descends a nice hillside in France. Get the fuck out and ride…pure and simple!
With spring on its way all I can think about lately is bike adventures like this one here from The Roosters. After seeing the trailer for this last week I’ve been itching to give it a look for a little trip motivation. These dudes sure as hell had a good time making their way from Madrid to Bordeaux over four days. I won’t be making it to Europe any time soon but you can bet I’ll be chasing some of this scenery. Hit their page for more or give them a follow for the daily!
All I’ve wanted to do for some time now is a rad bikepacking/multiple day trip like this one here from The Roosters. These dudes buckled down and made the 400+ mile trek from Madrid to Bordeaux in just 4 days. Looks like one hell of a trip with more than enough views to make it worth it. Dig this…
Matthieu Loizelet with some nice black and whites from the National Moutarde Crit Dijon. It’s been awhile since high school French but pretty sure that translates to National Mustard Crit in Dijon. Hard one I know. Anywho, rad shot’s and plenty more on his flickr.
Nothing about church here aside from some inverted crosses. Just dudes and their track bikes riding in some sick places. I’ve never seen any of these videos but with the nasty ass weather outside I’m down to see some sunny track bike tripping. Here’s a few that I found today and be sure to hit there Tumbler up for moreee.
I’ve always been a fan of what the dudes at Rock’N”Rollin are doing and usually get some stuff posted up. For some reason I’ve long been drawn to french stuff even taking 4 years of the language in school. As a thanks for support Francois from the crew sent me over a little care package. Not usually one to wear cycling caps since they look funny but I put this thing on as soon as i got it and rolled around for work. Dig the shirt a ton too which has already been through the wash once. Thanks again man!
