This past Saturday, I helped my dude Edson throw an uphill sprint race in Elysian Park for the Chrome_20 pop up shop and our homie Kenny flew in for a hours to shoot this rad edit and give out some swag. Head to Head sprint racing til there was one victor, Anthony Z from GSS/ Unknown! So stoked for that yung buck, he beat some heaters to get that win, solid work. There’s still plenty more events coming out of the Chrome_20 pop up shop (alleycat this weekend and a closing race the weekend after this one), plus damn good deals on rad Chrome bags and gear until it closes on the 22nd!
Another event I am bummed to miss. The Heavy Pedal is making moves and is poised to take over in 2014. I expect some big news to be coming out soon… I for one can’t wait and I have feeling 2014 is gonna be a good year for The Heavy Pedal. Huge congrats and good luck with new space, I’ll be visiting it as soon as I can. Stoked!
I am super bummed I am gonna miss this. Not only is Burro my bag sponsor, they have been supporting my Lord of Griffith race for four years before they started sponsoring my racing/ riding adventures and now we’re all one big family. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Huge props and Congrats for reaching 6 years and here’s to many more years of bucking the system!
Black Friday is upon us. I’m heading to the mountains to go ride, so here’s a few of the sales going down today and this weekend, but I’ll see you at the Chrome20 pop up shop later tonight. Greg and I are hosting a CX ride to this event tonight. Be at O20 by 530, we’re rolling at 6pm. Bring lights, tubes, a helmet and good vibes!
Sunday had us out racing in Glendale for Turkey Trot. This was a fun course. Two steep drops, two run ups, lots of off canter turns and chicanes, tons of fast grass sections, loose mulch and of course dirt! This was my fourth CX ever and I actually felt comfy and confident during my race for once. How did I do? Well, I didn’t crash and I didn’t come in last. I’m looking for to next weekend’s races and pushing myself to go faster and harder.
I’m glad to see our community step up and help out. If you are free on Wednesday during the day, please head to this event and show your support!
This event is gonna rule. Don’t miss it.
Greg and I will be hosting a CX group ride from O20 to this event, we’ll be meeting at 530, rolling at 6. Dirt and street mixed route, a fun night time adventure and a great way to warm up for Fixie CX race! Lights, helmets, tools and tubes are needed for this ride! See you at the shop!
