Last week the alleycat king, Lucas Brunelle, was a victim of road rage in the streets of Boston. After being assaulted by a cabbie who tried to flee the scene, Lucas stepped in front of the taxi and ended up on the hood, speeding through boston. It could have ended a lot worse than it did.

The press on this story was huge as court wrapped up. This has quickly become a big story in Boston and beyond. Lucas is upset by the drivers bail being set at $1000 after punching and then hitting Lucas with his taxi. Do you think $1000 was a fair bail amount?

Wearing a skirt while cycling can be risky…Trust us, we know, that’s why you never see us riding in skirts. But some of our lady-friends are all about that skirt-lyfe and need an easy solution to this problem. The last thing you want is your skirt getting caught in a wheel or chainring. Penny In Yo’ Pants is a simple DIY #CYCLEHACK for the Ladies.

This past weekend the Velo Sports Center in Carson, CA held their biggest event of the year…the Los Angeles Grand Prix, an international high-caliber track cycling event drawing top athletes from the States and the World. It would also be the site of Wolfpack Hustle’s last event of the Unified Title Series…The ALL-OUT-WAR. This was a unique event, pairing LA’s best street racers on the wooden planks with athletes aiming towards World Cups, World Championships, and the Olympic Games.

It was an impressive showing in both the men’s and women’s fields. When the ladies took to the track, eyes were on a team from UCSD, taking the lead and dominating the pack. Early on we also saw a strong showing from team SWAT (She Wolf Attack Team) with Kora Colasuonno putting in work before they started counting points. Strategy played a huge role in both outcomes as racers had to keep themselves from being eliminated in the first stage of the race before it turned into a points competition. The race was not without issue, but the final outcome had Lindsay Nelson edging out Esther Walker in points for first and Morgan Kapp coming in third.

The men’s race was won by Roberto Hegeler from LaGrange Cycling Club leading the pack the whole way hard-style until the final two laps. As the pack came blazing around a turn, Cameron Bond, Edgar “Willo” Juarez, and Dominic Suozzi broke out in a battle for the podium. In the end it was Dominic from the State Bicycle team taking second and Cameron Bond from team FixFixie coming in third.

The Velo Sports Center is definitely a place to check out. A Pro level facility just a short ride from LA, it’s cool to have such a venue close by. It was a fun-filled day watching pro and amateur racers pushing each other out on the track. If you want to get velo certified contact the Carson velodrome yourself or take some classes at Encino. They have a beginners class on Wednesdays. Congrats to all the winners!

It’s that time again. It’s getting dark earlier, the leaves are changing, and it’s getting COLD (well, not really in LA). To make you feel all warm and fuzzy, TRAFIK presents the new TRAFIK Pullover, a heavyweight sweater for riding or chilling. But be warned, this will be the most comfortable pullover you own so watch that it doesn’t get “borrowed” by your girlfriend (she’ll look great in it tho).

The TRAFIK Pullover is a 50% Cotton/Poly blend, pre-shrunk. It boldly displays the TRAFIK logo on the front, letting everyone know whats up. There is also a TRAFIK printed sizing label on the inside – f#@k itchy tags! Every TRAFIK Pullover comes with TRAFIK vinyl bike decals, so scoop yours now before we sell out of your size!

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.
