Remember that time we thought we lost those photos of the K-town Scratch Race but they were actually stuck on a memory stick in between a bunch of family holiday pics? Yeah, that time…
Kushtown Society threw a scratch race right before the holidays. It was a good chance to win some extra Christmas presents and LA came out. The course was a short circuit in the middle of K-town, the last rider to cross the finish line each lap was “scratched”. Over 50 riders came out, so they were set to do 50, 1-mile laps. More than an hour in the police pulled up and started hassling us and ended up blocking the road and cutting the race short. Fuck. But by that time there was a clear leader, Felipe Castillo from Gorilla Smash Squad and Leader took it.

TRAFIK represents fixed gear everywhere, so when Florida’s FYXD305 hit us up to sponsor their alleycat it was a no-brainer!
Over 50 competitors came out to race in downtown Miami, Florida and unlike most of the world right now the weather was perfect! Racers rode anywhere from 12 to 25 miles tallying up checkpoints, depending on the route they took.
In the end there was only enough room for 3 on the podium. Congrats to the winners, enjoy that TRAFIK swag!

Everyone knows there is only one thing to do after a race and that is to party! With DJs, drinks, beer, food, bbq and icecream, what else could you want? Great turn out and thanks to all involved! Check back soon for a video!
Thanks for the “Like” and “Share” and your continued support of fixed gear culture!
This vid features Wolfpack’s own Fabian on the fixie and was shot by Warren Kommers. Cant wait to see Sagan in Cali, this is going to be awesome!
This motorcycle isn’t exactly a, well, motorcycle. But looks fun, and definitely worth a few laughs!

Fyxd305, the dudes from Florida’s fixed scene hit us up about a cool race they are throwing and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get involved! We are always stoked to sponsor events outside of LA and keep fixed gear culture growing. Even if you can’t come out to race Feb 22nd in FL, USA, you should still check out their video for the Candela 2 AlleyCat Race.
