We’re really excited to have Leader Bikes onboard as a Headline Sponsor the for the King Of Vegas race next Thursday, Sept 19th. And you should be excited too, cus they will be throwing in their brand new 2014 edition 725 frames for the first Man and Women to cross the finish line, which is extra sweet since these frames have not yet been released anywhere.

Look out for Leader Bikes this year at Interbike and at the #KOV2013 finish line. They will have sponsored riders in the race, including Neu York from team GSS, racing for first place and their share of the $1200 cash prize! Thanks Leader Bike, see you all in Vegas!
Shout-out to one of our newest sponsors to the King of Vegas race, “.elohssa“. If you don’t know yet what the KOV is, it’s an insane alley cat race through the busy and unforgiving streets of Las Vegas. Racers come from around the world to put their life on the line for over $1200 plus tons of prizes.
The .elohssa crew is no strange to smashing busy city streets and they just posted a video of them smashing through Los Angeles. You can check their latest video below or at their website, elohssacycling.com to see what they are all about.
2013 KING OF VEGAS INFO
2012 KOV PICS FROM TRAFIK FLIKR
The Midnight Drag Race was the last of Wolfpack Hustle’s 2013 Unified Title Series, the largest of its kind in LA. It can be hard to explain just how epic these races have been if you haven’t had a chance to see them in person, but it’s really amazing to be able to attend such large underground events and be part of this cultural evolution that seems to be happening in LA. Thanks to Wolfpack Hustle once again for working so hard, pulling off the impossible, and making the LA bike scene what it is today.
A lot of big names and powerful legs came out to spin for the title, but in the end all but one was eliminated. The winner of the Midnight Drag race was former decathlete “Nate Koch”. This guy is a beast, just check his pic below! Turns out he began cycling to recover from his injuries as a decathlete and has future plans of making the Olympics. You can learn more about him at TeamNater.com. Second place went to “Willo” with UNKNOWN Bikes, and Third place went to Neu York who rides with GSS and Leader Bikes. You can check out all the other race photos at our TRAFIK Flickr page.
Our congrats to the overall winner of Wolfpack Hustle’s Unified Series, Edgar “Willo” Juarez and his sponsor “Unknown Bikes“. Props on all your hard work and thanks for keeping the wolfpack dog tags in LA.
Shout out to the guys over at Ergon for once again sponsoring the annual King of Vegas race! They make really great racing gloves that our team has been using for awhile. Make the podium of the KOV and you’ll get a pair for yourself. As one of our long time sponsors we are proud to have them onboard.
As the cash and swag rolls in we will be updating the blog, so check back to see just how big the stash is! You can also check out the loot in last years KOV photo package.
Props to Willo for Winning the Wolfpack Hustle Race Series Championship! Check out the dope video of him training in Long Beach on his UNKNOWN Bikes.
