Dan over the cobles

Upside down number thirteen for good luck. Seemed to work out last week.

Here is the VeloNews race report.

And a video the NYPost made about the race.

Shooting with Redhook Crit champ today…

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Shot some footage of Dan who won the Redhook crit this past weekend. He was riding his 1st place prize which is a Cinelli Gazzetta Excellent race, cant wait until next year. The Bicycle Film Festival is making a movie on it. Be sure to check it out this summer.

Red Hook race report

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Last night was a blast even if I didn’t even get to the part where I had to worry about getting dropped. I messed up the whole shot at the start and found myself way outside in the first turn. Then some poor racer flatted just inside the turn from me, and I was pushed almost to the outside curb.

I chased and chased, blowing up pretty quickly. Eventual 5th place rider Pavel Marosin passed me on the start-finish straight a lap or two in, but I wasn’t recovered enough to hold his wheel.

But enough about me. Despite my poor showing, Empire riders were in force. Dan won, and even though he was forced on to the curb in the last turn, Chris placed fourth. Here they are, with Al who placed second.

It was an extremely fun, but dangerous race. If the race happens next year, I’d like to see lapped riders pulling out, or at least sitting up and pulling over when gettingĀ  lapped. A separate women’s field would be another improvement.

Red Hook racing

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

The last time I raced in Redhook was over a year ago on the cold night of an opening for JT. It was so cold we were breaking up wood palettes for the bonfire on the street.

Eventually we ended up staging sprints around the block. Here’s how it started.

And here’s how it ended.

I didn’t win, but I had a ton of fun.

Rumor has it the Luke is racing…

and looking to win. He has been strength training but is that enough to take it? The only problem is, there are a couple of Empire riders in his way.
