The Wolfpack Hustle continues to impress! This year over 3,000 riders showed up for the annual Marathon Crash Race, which the LA Times called “the largest urban-underground street race in the world”. Participants from around US gathered at 3:30am to crash the course for the LA marathon just as the city shuts down the city streets.

Although the streets are shut down and riders have the aid of the LA police things still got quite hairy when riders were confronted with cones, caution tape, crews and even some live traffic. Needles to say, there were a few crashes. But that just goes with the territory. Check out the crash below!

Racers came from all over, even out of state. But Arizona was the most notable, probably because they all sported the same state bicycle kit and ended up walking away with a few dog tags. (1st fixed Craig Streit and 2nd fixed Scott Piercefield)

Wolfpack is still working out the exact placement of the racers. But here is a slowed down video where you can try to pick yourself out.
