MISSION CRIT VII – 2022 PHOTOS

September 6, 2022

San Francisco’s legendary Mission Crit popped off over the weekend with 6 days packed full of track bike racing & mayhem. The event tee’d off on Wednesday at Hellyer Velodrome, then moved back up to The City on Thursday with an alleycat + registration. Things then heated up on Friday night with a short circuit race held at an indoor go-kart track. This event brought to life the term “rubbing is racing” as riders were sent over the knee high barricades more than a handful of times (Video evidence HERE).

All of which brought us to Saturday’s main event, the Mission Criterium. Riders from around the globe came to partake in what has become the largest fixed gear race on the planet. With that being said, I’d like to take a moment and give huge shoutout to James Grady, the countless volunteers and everyone who helped to bring the fixed gear community together for this incredibly memorable moment. Things wouldn’t be the same without all of your continuous efforts. (More info on Mission Crit + the Fixed Gear Triple Crown can be found HERE)

After all was said and done there wasn’t a single person without a smile on their face. The course was cleared and the streets that were shutdown for the race were graciously given back to the city until we could do it all over again next year. If racers weren’t tired yet they could look forward to the Tracklocross race on Sunday followed by the “Giro di San Francisco” on Monday. If you raced all 6 days or even showed up to all 6 events, then go ahead and give yourself a massive pat on the back. It’s probably a good time to take it easy as we hopefully exit out of this mind numbing heat wave here in California. 🥵 🏁

RED BULL BAY CLIMB – VIDEO

September 26, 2017

Cheap thrills & climbing hills. If there’s a fixie event happening, nearby we’ll be there. With our camera’s ready, our heads bouncing, and high fives being thrown in every direction. We’re always ready to cut loose and have a good time. If there’s one thing boy scouts taught me, it’s “be prepared”.

The Red Bull Bay Climb in San Francisco was a real cliff hanger. As in everybody felt like they were standing on the face of a cliff the entire time . To even make it to the top, is a feat strength in itself. Word on the street is that 103 total miles were raced by all of the participants. I always enjoy shooting the fixed gear events we take part in and usually find a friend to help capture the times I’m not behind the lens. This time Portland’s finest Ramon Antonio III came down to contribute to this 60 second recap.

It was great kicking it with all the homies in The Bay. Until next time.

TCB RACE – PARKS & WRECK

July 24, 2016

Beers don’t normally grow on trees, but they might as well have during yesterday’s TCB cross race. The flyer said something about bringing a backpack and a handful of sanitizer, which left us with more than a handful of questions. It was a race around a track that was littered with bicycle debris, trash, feathers and warm beers that were hidden throughout the course. Each lap counted as a point as well as each piece of trash collected along the way. At the end of the 30 minute race the points were tallied and the park looked cleaner than ever. Shout out to RJ Rabe & Ramon for hosting this one and keep an ear to the ground for next month’s.
