So this guy, John “Chombo” Siers
Organizes a fun race in Dumbo Brooklyn, April 15th, 2006. 69 riders make a mad scramble around town and this guy, Austin takes the crown (not the guy in the white Chunk 666 shirt)
Check out race results with commentary by Chombo and links to flickr pages I missed at nybma/dumboscramble
—Meanwhile this guy, Squid
along with Team Puma from NYC, was getting in shape at the veledrome in Leigh Valley, in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania
Messengers from NY, DC, and Richmond came out to mix it up with a bunch of Cat 5’s. Also there was a big Womens field, Cat 4, 3’s and 2’s, Masters, and Juniors.
Amy took great photos of the event.
Everyone is getting ready for these three track eventsIt’s a series hosted by Squid and team Puma in three cities: LA, Chicago and NYC. Top Male and Top Female win tickets to Australia for the Cycle Messenger World Championships in Sydney-October 2006. Last time I checked airfare alone was something like $1200 bucks, so start cranking!
John Campo and the people at Kissena’s veledromein Queens are gearing up for opening day: April 29th and 30th (Saturday and Sunday)
Yes, NYC has a veledrome and will be hosting races all Spring and Summer. More info to come. If you’ve never raced a track before, come check it out. You could win tickets to the world championships in October.
