Chrome_20 Uphill Sprints Fixed Gear Bike Race

Chrome Industries has been hosting a bunch of cool events to celebrate their Los Angeles holiday pop up hub. The shop is next door to Orange20 bikes, and Edson Palucha, who works at o20, hosted this race last week as part of his FOOseries. It was all uphill fixed gear brakeless sprints in Elysian Park. I couldn’t make it out (I was busy gearing up for a holiday caroling ride that night), but it looked like a lot of fun.

The Winners:
1st: Anthony Zelaya
2nd: Edgar “Willo” Juarez
3rd: Raul “Nokx” Rodriguez

Lord of Griffith V – Fixed Gear Race in Griffith Park

Yesterday was the fifth Lord of Griffith fixed-gear bicycle race in and around the hills of Griffith park, Los Angeles.

This was not a game for the weak – only fixed-gear, no brakes allowed.

Wolfpack Hustle Huntington Park Gran Prix

Wolfpack Hustle Huntington Park Gran Prix

Here’s some shots from last Saturday’s HP Grand Prix. Wolfpack Hustle hosted this night of bike drag racing in the historic core of Huntington Park, right down the center of a closed-off Pacific Avenue. We tagged along on the Treats ‘n’ Beats ride from downtown LA to the races and had a blast – along with some solid local burritos and tasty home-baked cupcakes from Sweet Escapes.

Watch Sweet Ride USA Episode 2

Episode 2 of our web series about riding bikes and eating desserts takes place in Los Angeles, the day before the Wolfpack Hustle‘s Marathon Crash Race – where thousands of cyclists crash the LA Marathon course in the twilight hours, before the runners take over the route. True, it’s not the best idea loading up on sweets on the day before a race, but Andrea “Mama B” Denike Martinez, Nat Gale, York Tan, Lawrence Sanchez and Katie Brooks Bennett said screw it and came on the Sweet Ride anyway.
