With a long weekend we decided some deep puddles and a steady onslaught of rain were more than overdue. As we work on the new direction of the site rides like these are crucial to narrowing things down. They also serve for a great day out ripping up some mud and water…

Though he came onboard a couple months back, we’ve yet to post a set of Devin‘s G.O.A.T. track. After a 6th place finish at Monster Track last year this G.O.A.T. was ready and rollin’ on the streets of NYC. A break in the weather last night gave us reason be out and about here in Sac. Quick stop and a few photos later…

With plenty of Cinelli’s on the road here in Sacramento one brand you don’t see many of is Engine 11. I’m pretty sure Nate‘s Vortex here is only the second track frame from the Korean brand to hit the streets in the City of Trees. He’s got some proper parts finishing this bad boy out and those Ritchey carbon bat wings are something to envy for sure! Being in the dead of winter we tried to mix things up and hit the dryers at the local laundromat for a full set. Click through for the whole deal…

Our good friend Henry from New York City paid us a visit this past week and it certainly was a trip to remember.

 

What better way to take a break from the City that never sleeps then coming to the City of Trees?

 

We spent most of our days in Sacramento then ended his final days in San Francisco with some great downhills and beautiful beaches. You don’t see that everyday in NYC.

 

Safe travels to you Henry, I’ll see you in Brooklyn!

Stopped for a few quick ones with Joey on our last runs yesterday. Though Sacramento seems like a small city to most there are quit a few alleys a streets that offer a good backdrop for shots like these…

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 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.

Squeezed in some late afternoon dirtin’ with Angel yesterday before getting back into the groove of the week. With miles on miles of single track Folsom Lake is easily my favorite place to get the cross bike dirty. This is one of the few shots Angel managed to grab yesterday and though this isn’t an official introduction for him you can expect to see much more from him on here soon!

This most recent episode of Streets of Chrome slipped through while we were tweaking the site but it’s too good not to get up for my dude John. He’s been ripping for years and no matter what’s thrown at him you know he going to get sick with it. So stoked to see him putting  sacramento on the map and if you’ve seen this already…give it another click!
