The Comedown Human Powered Rollercoaster.

Posted by: kris

Spotted this piece of awesomeness on Urban Velo this morning and had to share. After the popularity of the mini velodromes over the past few years it was only a matter of time before things got a bit weird. The figure 8 track dubbed The Comedown is going to be one the move and ready to race here soon…just hoping it makes it’s way stateside so I can have a go. Hop over to Urban Velo for more!

Kalavinka in Velodrome.

Posted by: kris

Ahhh yes…wild track bikes in their natural habitat. Diggin’ this velodrome footage of Sándor Szalontay and his Kalavinka at this year’s Apeldoorn European Championships. Some serious power right here…

Jens Voigt and the #HourRecord.

Posted by: kris

The Hour Record is one of track cycling’s most noted titles and something well worth pedaling all out for 60 minutes. As the final piece to his pro career Jens Voigt will be attempting to beat the existing Hour Record on this Trek Factory machine. If anyone is going to do it this is the dude and this beast is his ride…find a way to watch this on Euro Sport. On a side note..THIS is a track bike.

#FBF: ’93 Til…

Posted by: kris

Always stoked on these old gems my buddy Rad sends through late in the week. Must be slow at the shop he manages coming across stuff like this 93 tandem track championship. Some spills and one hell of a tandem whip skid…

No Jeans for You.

Posted by: kris

Today was definitely a slow start to the week but this made my morning. My buddy Rad emailed me this bit from late last year…”oh fuck, no jeans for you.” Too good!

Red Bull Minidrome NYC.

Posted by: kris

I was bummin’ when I found out about this one so late but Red Bull looks to have done it again with another rad NYC Minidrome event. Riders packed into the Brooklyn Masonic Temple Friday night for some heavy competition on the works smallest velodrome. The Brooklyn Machine Works team took the title led by Austin Horse and clinching the win with teammate Dave Rodebaugh taking the final. Cool to see staple State rider Hernan Montenegro in there taking the second spot. Here’s a handful of images from the night…peep more here!

Track Attack: Part One.

Posted by: kris

Some cool shots in this velodrome bit out at Giovanni Monti Velodrome in Padua, Italy. Nothing like a good day at the track and there’s some damn nice bikes circling the oval in this. Dig it.

Enjoy the Track.

Posted by: kris

From the editing to the mid track tennis courts this is a cool velodrome bit. Word on the street is Sacramento should have its track finished in 2016. Seems a bit out there but if it means fun nights doing laps like this I’ll be more than stoked.
