Video Friday-the Ides of March-3/15/13

Beware the Ides of March and the videos of Friday.

Title: Lucas Brunelle-Renegades of the Road
Seen on: Urbancyclistworldwide
An excerpt from the master of the helmet camera, racer Lucas Brunelle-his documentary “line of sight.” Just in time for Monster Track 14, which Lucas has video taped like no other. Here is the NYC cut.

Title: How the Race was Won-Nice-Paris 2013
Seen on: Urbancyclistworldwide
You could argue it was the lesser of the two March one-week stage races this year, but that’s fine. A decent sprint or two, a ton of lead changes, nice tactical riding on occasion and more than a few of the typical stage race antics. Richie Porte confirming the Maglia Rosa of 2010 was no fluke, and Andrew Talansky showing he has the energy, and at least some of the guile, to be competitive at the top tier of the sport. Good times.

Title: Fixed Gear Obstacle Racing in Latvia – Red Bull Tru Fix 2012

Title: Breakin L.A. | U.S. trailer
Seen on: Urbancyclistworldwide
A group of bicycle aficionados from Hamburg St. Pauli made their way to break-in the city of Los Angeles. During 12 days the group scattered the city in all cardinal directions. They cruised through the barrios of East LA, blazed to the beaches of Venice and ascended the Hollywood Hills. They worked as volunteers at the Midnight Mission on skid row to bring attention to the 15,000 homeless people, who are the result of gentrification in LA.
They discovered a velodrome in the valley and self-tested their consciousness at the LA Gun Club. During the trip they met with a great variety of local riders. Although the bike scene in the capital of cars is relatively small, their skills are top notch. In the end the group attempted to reconquer the ecological desert of Los Angeles in order to survive evolutionary pressures, such as distances and traffic.

Not the Walrus, not the Beasties, a new Eggman in town.

Now when I think of the title Eggman, I can’t help but immediately think of those three kids from Brooklyn who brought hip-hop to suburbia with their beer fueled rambunctious lyrics. Yes non other then the Beastie Boys who had to fight for their right to party but in the end they got a [...]
