First of all, I got to be honest that I never though I would go to Korea since I’m not very in fond of K Pop and eating spicy food. However, after this travel, it becomes one of my favorite countries to travel again! From 6/3-6/8, me and my homies went to participate in their 10th King Of Track velodrome and crit races. It was really exciting and fun to watch this kind of intensive level of race! But what made me feel so good was the atmosphere of the whole event. It’s like a combination of casualty and seriousness! Met Paolo Bravini and some other guys of Team Cinelli Chrome and saw some dudes of Leader Bikes crushing the races and got podium in almost every single one. It’s also great to meet some new Korean dudes at the event and the Home Bike bikes shop. The event was just extraordinary and I certainly look forward to seeing it grow up!
After 6/6, it’s a independent trip for Morgan and I. With the help of Jack and Lee Seung Hyeon, we were able to see the beauty of Seoul, the city, the streets, the culture, the food and so forth! Riding in Seoul was not as easy as we thought…some roads were just too rough but yet overall…it’s a great city to have some fun and ride! Time was limited, our trip was narrowed down but this won’t be our last time in Seoul! A short, casual documentary can be seen here on Track Or Trick fan page!
Few things compare to a great day at the track with the friends…would be here in a heartbeat!
The crew at Rad Race were lucky enough to be the official recap squad for this year’s Berlin Six-Day. The more than a century old event is a six day race fest with different events each night. Definitely looks damn fun just to attend from what they’ve been putting up so far. Peep the first five days below and stay on Rad Race for the finale!
Engine 11 sent their formidable track team to Korea for the recent King of Track event. Keeping true to road trip style they saw the sights, hit the events and showed up ready for laps on race day. From the looks of it this was one trek to be remembered and an event well worth traveling to. Pop over to Engine 11 for more!
Chances are if you’ve seen coverage from Red Bull’s Over/Under event in NYC last weekend you wish you were there. Red Bull put on a good one here and Leader’s Brian Safa captured captured the night with this proper video report. I’d say this bad boy will be popping up in a few more places so pop over and read up to prep!
All over the world many are observing the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. For some this means a month long break from spinning at the track while fasting. This proper bit from a day at the track in Jakarta marks the last day of racing for the Jakarta crew…keep up with them in the meantime here!
