It was a fun day this past Saturday at the TRAFIK Summer Kickback 2015. We want to thank Daily Dose Cafe and Throne Cycles for helping make it happen. The art was ill, the crowd was rowdy and the race was fast as f*uk. The riders had to race for 45 minutes which really thinned out the pack. Then after 45 minutes it all came down to 5 laps, with the podium being Manny from GLK, Felipe from THRONE, and Willo from Zero Miedo. Shamane Morejon was the top female finisher. Check out the drone action from the Crit below…

For the 3rd year in a row the guys over at Freqnt Flyr have organized the Midnight Marauders Night Century Ride, 100 miles through LA county with hundreds of your closest friends.

It’s going down this Saturday, July 18th. For full info head over to their FaceBook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/388542027998256/

The ride meets at Union Station at 6pm and rolls out a 7. Make sure to bring all the essentials you need, especially a spare tube.

ULock Mob Cycling’s DTLA GPX Summer Series 2015 is going off the chain! A series of crit races around Downtown Los Angeles every Friday night in July, this past week was the second installment in the series with a brand new course named “DIAMOND in the RUFF” . A one-mile loop around Edward R. Roybal Learning Center, which included that nice little climb at Vista Hermosa Park, fast downhills and 3 turns into oncoming traffic.

Jon B.east from team Aventon was there looking to defend his 1st place killing from the series first race. But Cesar from team Zeromiedo gave him a fight all the way through and crossed the line first in the end. The front pack included members of team Leader Bikes, GLK racing, and team Unknown, but the money can only go to one man. There are three more races left if you want to prove your racing skills, put your money where your mouth is and come out on Friday! Check out the full set of pics over on our FLICKR page…TRAFIKPIX.

This Saturday is Independence Day in the USA, but on the other side of the world there is a major fixed gear cycling record happening. One of our friends from Fixed X Hungary is attempting to break the World Record for the most miles(km) continuously ridden on a fixed gear bike. Yes this is a thing, and this dude is doing it.

Zoltan Bako is the founder of Fixed X Hungary and is attempting to break this world record by riding 550km (341 miles) non-stop across the Hungarian countryside. The rules are he must ride with only a 5 minute break every 60 minutes. This break time also accounts for mechanicals, bathroom, etc. So really no rest.

We had the chance to ride with Zoltan when he dropped into LA a few months back. He’s a strong rider, but a task of this magnitude takes a great deal of mental toughness as well. Good luck Zoltan. And we wish your taint luck too. Head over to their FB page and support people doing ill shit. https://www.facebook.com/fixedxhungary

Bikes Love Pizza

30

Jun

2015

One of the best things to go with bike racing is PIZZA. This past weekend Pizzanista threw its first Checkpoint alleycat race through the streets of LA. It was a field of around 100 riders eager to get some of those pizza prizes, and they were some pretty good prizes too.

Taking Women’s first place was Aish representing for S.W.A.T. The Men’s top position was taken by NeuYork who walked away with a @vans $500 gift card, @rvca $250 gift card, @gopro hero4, @pizzanista $200 gift card, a pair of @oakley sunglasses, @goldensaddlecyclery custom seat and a @kryptonitelock bike lock. Bruh. It pays to know your streets. He was followed up by John Budinoff and Jason Rivera.

Pizzanista definitely brought the cycling community together for a good time just like they do every Tuesday with $2 slices. Make sure to check them out in DTLA. See all the pics over on our FLICKR page TRAFIKPIX. Photo Cred: James Morales
