Awesome news. Official info for the 2011 red hook criterium is here. So glad we partnered with Dave for this again. We are going to be running a wheel pit for in race flat fixes.

Press Release:
2011 Red Hook Criterium to be powered by Eastern Mountain Sports
Trimble Racing is proud to announce Eastern Mountain Sports as the presenting
sponsor of the 4th annual Red Hook Criterium to be held on March 26th, 2011.
"Each year has seen the race double the number of participants, spectators, and
media coverage. The partnership with Eastern Mountain Sports will allow the
race to continue growing while retaining the original atmosphere and appeal of
the Red Hook Criterium," says organizer David Trimble.
This unsanctioned bicycle race is held on a short technical circuit in Red Hook,
Brooklyn and has attracted semi-professional 'roadies', bike messengers, and
urban cyclists. As in the past, track bikes are mandatory for all riders. The first
person to cross the finish line at the completion of 20 laps will take home the
famed cobblestone trophy. "This race is fast, dangerous and requires an equal
combination of strength, bike handling skills, and bravery," says Trimble.
Keeping with race tradition, the after party will immediately follow the race where
the top finishers will be showered with champagne, prizes, and cash.
"Eastern Mountain Sports is fully committed to supporting cycling every chance
we get, so how can we say “no” to a race that starts at 11PM and showcases
athletes racing track bikes over cobblestoned streets" says Eastern Mountain
Sports Executive Vice President Ted Manning, “Coupled with our amplified focus
on New York City this year, Red Hook Crit gives us a chance to not only openly
support cycling, but to be a part of a unique New York-based event.”
Eastern Mountain Sports is at the top of a deep sponsor list that includes Cinelli,
La Colombe, Vici Velo, Brooklyn Brewery, Giro, 9th Street Cycles, Gage +
Desoto, Teamscreen, Rapha, and Roo Design.
The race is held at night and starts at 11:00 pm sharp. More information at

Time off in Portland

As usual, Portland OR is full of crafty and inventive bike art. I guess the endless gloom and rain leaves you with a lot of time on your hands.

I was always curious how portlanders consistently bike through a constant cold and rainy winter even with the best fenders and rainy winter gear. Over the past week that I've been here, the temp has been in the 30's and 40's; downright tropical coming from New York which is apparently under two feet of snow.

If the temperature stayed like this all winter, I'd have no problem dealing with constant wet pants.

On a Steel Horse I Ride

Thomas Callahan of Horse Cycles has been building me a beautiful track frame for a little while now and I thought I'd throw up some teaser photos as it is nearly done. I am so pumped to get this thing running. Its off to the plater in a few days for a genuine nickel finish. Thomas plans to show it at the Philly bike expo at the end of October. Enough Chatter I'll let the pics speak for themselves.
