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

If you didn’t take the trip to Long Beach this past weekend for the Wolfpack Hustle Shortline Crit, what the hell were you doing? This was the first points event in the Unified Title Series and everyone and their mother was there. Riders came out from all over to compete and there were some surprising results on the podium. Taking first for Men’s Track was a newcomer all the way from Puerto Rico, Edgardo Richiez from Team Impulse. Jo Celso, a crowd favorite, took 1st in both the Women’s road and track races. Jo really cleaned up when it came to the $100 primes that were awarded (from such great companies like TRAFIK). When all the cash was added up she walked away with $1300. Now that’s how you pay the rent!

Kushtown Society is not your average bunch of stoners. On 4/20 while most people were kicking back with a skull bong and a bag of Funions, these guys (and girls) were pushing it up the slopes of Mt. Hollywood for the Get High, Climb Higher Alleycat. With 3 checkpoints, special Preme stops, and 3000ft of elevation, this was an event for “functional stoners” only. See it all go down in our exclusive video edit here…

Dozens of riders came out to test their climbing abilities against each other, with only the best mountain goats making three complete laps of the park and finishing at the helipad for a turned-up 4/20 party that lasted into the night. Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting this fun event.

The podium results are:
1st: Jon Budinoff
2nd: Nick from the Bay
3rd: Jason Rivera
4th: Willo
5th: Hern Montenegro
1st Female: Emily Ryan
