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

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