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. 🥵 🏁

FIXED GEAR – SHINE TOGETHER

August 10, 2021

Reunited and it feels so gooood. During this time I had just finished a major job and was enjoying my first weekend back with the boys. With a lot of the usual suspects in SF or the day we had our fun doing what we usually do. Having fun, riding bikes & looking for a place in this world to be ourselves. Break fake rules. Enjoy every moment of every day and tell your friends you love them. Be good and we’ll see you next time.

FGFS SF – FINANCIAL BOYS PHOTOS

September 27, 2020

The boys are back in town. Every Saturday we’ve been meeting up to shred in San Francisco and this week was no exception. Immediately after DASH 4 THE CASH was finished we linked up and rode the Financial District. Which has been completely gutted and is incredibly desolate with everything going on in the world. SF is a ghost town and we’re taking full advantage of that. Stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for the video from this day dropping tomorrow morning. Holler at your boy if anybody wants to meet up and roll around with us sometime. All bikes are welcome.

FGFS LOS ANGELES – KEEPING DISTANCE

June 29, 2020

https://wheeltalk.org/2020/06/29/fgfs-los-angeles-keeping-distanceOnce a week. It’s been good to get back on the FGFS bike again and even better to have a social distance session with the boys. The photo of JBALL hitting a table top is one of my favorite shots from the day. He brought a film video camera with him and we got a quick clip with that at our first spot of the day. The banks. After that it was off to the local high school to ride some surprisingly beautiful and uncapped set of ledges. If only more schools were built like that.

I’m looking forward to dropping off the roll of 35mm I shot on my 120mm Hasselblad 503cx. I just got a spool adapter recently and have never shot full bleed 35mm. It’ll be fun to see how the sprocket style film photos turn out. I took some top down photos / video through the view finder to help give you an idea of what we got. Stay tuned for video clips from this day as well as a solo part of Marco Marquez we recently finished piecing together.

FIXED GEAR – GUILLERMO IN DTLA

June 26, 2020

Guillermo Galindo has been a man on a mission lately. His riding has progressed so much in the last year and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. It’s truly amazing to see how far he’s come and I highly suggest you check out his youtube channel. He’s constantly turning out new videos and progressing at everything he puts his mind to. I’ve only known him for a short while, but I can already tell that he’s going places just by his positive mindset and he way he inspires others. Keep charging my dude.

WHEEL TALK – PLUS ULTRA

June 11, 2020

Who doesn’t love leftover pizza. The team really came together for this one, like knights of the round table. Actually this is just a bunch of clips from 2019 that didn’t make their way into other videos edits. I knew there were some extra clips floating around and I’m really glad I went back through to see what didn’t make the first cut. Check out nearly 50 screen shots as well as the custom soundtrack to the video below.
