MFS: Philly Part 1

July 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

A month or so back myself and Chris headed out to watch the Philly Cycling Classic. Knowing that local boys Evan and Dan we’re in the newly formed invitational Century racing team for the event that draws in Pro Continental teams really added to the event for us. As well of course as ‘The Wall’, Manual for speed were there and of course managed to capture the build up to the race in their typical insightful and voyeur way. This is a great read and really hits home some of the feelings I go through with my approach to racing. Can’t wait for part 2.



If you make one mistake you’re gonna be fucked because in races like this, you can’t use your fitness to overcome mistakes. If you do, then you don’t have any fitness left to race the bike race.


I don’t have a scheme but I don’t want to turn around in my late thirties and wish that I had done more with bike racing. Right now I want to do as much racing as I can and if thats leads somewhere, great, I won’t have any regrets. If it doesn’t, I still won’t have any regrets. I just turned 26. There’s no time limit on getting a real job, settling down, putting some money into a bank. Theres no ticking clock for that.

I’m enjoying the opportunities I get and have currently, I’m not looking too far ahead, I’m not preoccupied with what’s next, I’m focused on the present, the here and now, I’m taking it all in.

Cinelli BOOTLEG Tour d’Afrique 2013 – Hobo

June 19, 2013 | By | No Comments

The Tour d’Afrique 2013 ended 1 month ago and Dario took part at the final leg from Windhoek to Cape Town with Chas and Lucas Brunelle. According to Dario, it was the perfect scenery for testing the Cinelli Hobo prototype. They reached the TdA Group in Windhoek and rode with them along 1700 km of dirt, sand, wind and road. Sounds nuts but incredible at the same time. You can find a short report of the trip on Cinelli Bootleg’s site and watch the short video below for now, but stay tuned for more on this amazing trip.

MET helmets: Zak Kovalcik

May 7, 2013 | By | No Comments

Zak’s racing career began as a courier, competing in local courier races, twice winning the North American Cycle Courier “Track King” title. He segued into racing on the velodrome and worked his way through the ranks quickly.
 
2011 saw Zak winning the Alpenrose Velodrome Challenge points race, the biggest race of the year at his home track, defeating arch rival Jame Carney. At the Fixed Gear Classic in Blaine, MN, Zak and long time madison partner Dan Harm won the madison, competing against long time Six Day pro Franco Marvulli.
 
Zak still works occasionally as a courier, but his main focus is on moving up to the next level in his racing career. His dream until not long ago was racing pro six days in Europe…

I haven’t seen this on any of my usual channels, a great series charting from concept to delivery an Opel car manufacturing collaboration with Fixerati. I’ve just jumped straight in with the ‘Reveal’ episode but be sure to check out the rest. Thanks to Angus for drawing my attention to it. Nice to see Jon hard at work!
