RED BULL BAY CLIMB – PHOTOS

I can barely even walk up this hill. Maybe I’m speaking for myself, but I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who felt this way. Red Bull always delivers the goods when it comes to events and creative content. This was no exception. With 3 city blocks and a 21% grade standing in your way, everybody was feeling the pain by the time they made it to the top of San Francisco’s De Haro Street.

“What’s your ratio?” All anybody could talk about. Is basically the slogan for the day. Sums up the entire event, I wouldn’t change a thing. We used to film a lot of skateboard videos down De Haro, and I’ll be the first to say that it’s no joke. Bury you alive, cross your t’s, dot your i’s type of shit. This event was in part reaction to the downhill race Red Bull hosted on De Haro a couple years ago. Check that out HERE. The most entertaining portion of the day was watching all the fixies make their way up the hill. It was like watching the little engine that could. I’m proud to be part of that train.

RED HOOK CRIT – BROOKLYN 2017

It’s like Nascar, but with fixies. With all of the excitement of everything going on in Barcelona this weekend I figured it would be proper to pull up some photos from the 10th Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn. I’m always stoked to be able to shoot this race for Chrome Industries and after filming Mission Crit the week before. The excitement was high.

The best part about these races are that they always feel like huge family reunions. People watching is a real close second though. I shot this year’s race with one camera and one lens. A fixed 50m. You can either bring it all or pack light. And after getting hit by a car the week before, I wasn’t trying to carry much of anything. This race just keeps getting bigger and I look forward to seeing where they take it next.

TCB RACE – PARKS & WRECK

Beers don’t normally grow on trees, but they might as well have during yesterday’s TCB cross race. The flyer said something about bringing a backpack and a handful of sanitizer, which left us with more than a handful of questions. It was a race around a track that was littered with bicycle debris, trash, feathers and warm beers that were hidden throughout the course. Each lap counted as a point as well as each piece of trash collected along the way. At the end of the 30 minute race the points were tallied and the park looked cleaner than ever. Shout out to RJ Rabe & Ramon for hosting this one and keep an ear to the ground for next month’s.

With 3 cases of some of the warmest PBR you’ve ever had, a handful of stakes and some caution tape, TCB Courrier kicked off the weekend with right with a dirt crit hosted in Golden Gate Park. Heats were broken down into 5 riders, 4 laps where the last person in each lap was pulled and had an opportunity to hop back in the race if they slammed a beer. All proceeds went towards putting gas in the tank and covering entry fees for the 2016 TCB cycle cross season. Be on the look out for more jams like this in the coming months. Until then scroll down and check out more photos from this one.
