The second race of the series took place in Long Beach CA at the infamous Hughes Park location. It was a great turn out for the fixed gear category with over 50 racers from different parts of the LA county coming out to represent. It was one of the most intense races there has been in LA and it went down just like it would at a regular USAC race. There wasn’t a total amount of laps, just 45 min inside the course and once that time was up it was 5 laps to go. So you can imagine all the attacks and breakaway attempts there was. With just 20 minutes in, the peloton had a 20 second lead that the rest of the riders couldn’t close.

Local heavy hitters from Throne Cycles, Leader Bikes, Mobbin Monday and Wolfpack Hustle all pushed themselves to the limit. Once 45 minutes were up the front pack had already lapped the field, leaving only the strongest of the group. As the countdown kept ticking down the hype got even more real. With just 2 laps to go some wheel bumping and poor maneuvering skills caused about 6 riders to go down in a pretty gnarly crash taking out one of the youngest riders, Manuel Aguila, along with 2013 Wolfpack Champion Edgar Willo Juarez, Felipe Castillo from GSS, Tony Zaldua from Unknown and Abraham Munoz from E11.

This gave the advantage of the rest of the peloton and they sprinted towards the finish line with only 1 lap to go. At that time all hell broke loose and the pack pushed harder than ever to cross that finish line. Great work from Dante Young from GSS who won the victory on his Birthday with Alberto Jaimes from Throne Cycles coming in one wheel short for his Second place finish. Not so far from him another young buck Cruz Murillo from Unknown Bikes coming in at Third.

TRAFIK was out in Huntington Park Saturday enjoying the race/party at the Wolfpack Hustle HP Gran Prix! Tons of spectators and racers came out to join the cycling festivities, now in it’s second year.


The entire city street was shut down and blocked off in the heart of HP and the sidewalks were packed! The railings were lined with screaming spectators as racers whizzed by two at a time. Everyone was timed and the fastest 16 then were put in a bracket and the elimination began till there was only one!

Racing in the HP Gran Prix is unlike any of the others in the series because it leaves no room for error. Racers give it everything they have for only about 20 seconds and must be completely ready when they step up to the line. All it takes is a shoe unclipping, a wheel being loose or a small obstacle in the road. Just one slip up and that’s it! When it was all said and done the points were added up and winners were named for the HP Gran Prix and the overall 2014 Unified Title Series.


Men Winners: Nate Koch, Donte Young, Edgar Willo Juarez
Female Winners: Nissy Cobb, Lindsay Nelson, @jordaaane
2014 Unified Title Series Winners: Lucas Binder & Jo Celso
