Video Fridays-4/11/14

Here we go again. Another round of videos to brighten your day like a possible-oh-it-looks-like-a-nice-day-wait-its-rainning. Spanning the world wide web to bring you moving pixels of velo love sensation.

Title: Brillibrilliant / Unicorn Racing Dream

Seen on: Urban Velo
Description: I’m not immersed in professional-esque racing culture, and probably a lot of you aren’t either, but I can appreciate these road teams that bring a more grounded approach to road racing culture and maybe making themselves more accessible to everyday riders like ourselves who equally enjoy a good spin around town. The Unicorn Racing team has coupled with the Hotel AM Brillantengrund to support their racing endeavors and offer something to riders of all stripes in the process.

The Vienna hotel sponsor offers affordable rates for locals and traveling cyclists, supplying pasta nights, group rides, room space for bikes, and insider information for area rides.

Title: Urban Legend Cyclewear
Seen on: Urban Velo
Description: If you want to ride on a bike backwards…helmet-less…drinking alcohol…while also looking stylish, apparently Budapest, Hungary is the place to do it. Poor riding advice aside, the new Adventurers collection by Urban Legend is designed for the urban cyclist who is just as fashion conscious as they are in need of all-weather materials. The summer collection consists of pack away jackets and cape-dresses that also double as pillows when crumpled up.

Friday Night Videos…from Russia with…Bike Videos.

Here’s a late addition of Video Friday.

I know you’ll all watching the Sochi Olympics waiting for something like this to happen:
YouTube:

There’s nothing like watching an opening ceremony of an Olympic event and see a host countries history depicted through Cirque du Soleil looking performers in unitards.

Perhaps we will feel the unity and the world coming together with Russian Police hoping to “Get Lucky.

I dunno, seems a little flamboyant to me…especially with Russia so particular about sexual preference.
We did get introduced to this year’s Olympic mascots:

(left to right) Fabulous Bunny, Stray(f) the Dog and Pussy Cat Tiger Riot.

In case you’ve missed the action here is a 2 hour special of pre-event coverage by Russian TV.

I know, poor Russia is getting picked on, but I really like the take on Gawker’s sports site Deadspin:

The Haters Guide to the Sochi Games.

If your not interested in obscure winter sports festival hosted by a corrupt country with an abysmal record on human rights…then let’s watch bike videos.

Here is some better sports competition: American Style!!

Ok, the bike videos:
Title: State Bicycle Shockwave Video
Seen on: Urban Velo.
Description: Fixed gear freestyle isn’t as visible as it was just a few years back, but there are still plenty of riders out there getting rad. State Bicycle has long had one of the more affordable FGFS complete bikes out there, with this being the latest incarnation, the $579 Shockwave. We reviewed the similar Massacre from State back in May 2012.

Title:CX Hairs: #SVENNESS 2.17
Seen on: Prolly
Description: This is it, the final race of the year for #SVENNESS. This one takes place in Hoogerheide, Netherlands for the 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Championship. Surely by now you’ve seen how brutal this course was, so sit back and enjoy!
Excellent job this year, CX Hairs!
