These girls are pulling out all the stops for their first race. Besides a long list of sponsors, they have this amazing video done by the phenomenal Ericka. Time to get pitted.
MASH presents a 3 man team fixed race to the NAHBS. It starts at 10am sharp and is fixed only. No entry, and if you're under 18, bring a waiver. A support vehicle will bring any necessary bags to the finish so you don't have to race with a fat load. Remember, the last team racer to cross sets the time so work together and make it there. Prizes will be awarded at the show.
Saturday March Third, 9:30AM at the Pittsburg BART Station.
Don't fuck this one up!
RED BULL RIDE + STYLE RETURNS TO SAN FRANCISCO
Event to Once Again Combine Fixed Gear Biking and Urban Contemporary Art
On April 28, San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza will once again serve as the setting for the collision of fixed gear biking and urban contemporary art known as Red Bull Ride + Style. After a highly successful inaugural kickoff in 2011, the event returns even bigger and better for 2012.
Red Bull Ride + Style features fixed gear riders facing off in both track and freestyle competitions, with the obstacles designed and decorated by local San Francisco artists. In 2011 the event brought together more than 50 riders from both coasts, including riders from fixed gear meccas San Francisco, Portland, New York, and even Japan.
The 2011 top ten finalists in both categories will be automatically invited back to this year’s event. While the remaining spots in freestyle will be invite-only, the race portion of the event will consist of a qualifying round the night before the main event. This will serve as an open invitation to all hopefuls to lay down their best time in order to qualify for the big show in Justin Herman Plaza on April 28.
This year’s racetrack is being designed with input from selected participants from the 2011 Red Bull Ride + Style event. Details will be released on the new track and freestyle course prior to the event, so riders can prepare themselves properly for the demands of event day. Another update with the full list of invited freestyle athletes and more information about the event will be released shortly.

I got to shoot Brian Novelo's LOW frame recently. The frame suits Brian really well; all black, raw decal, and a specially designed brushed Cadence logo peeking through the raw. Hella classy. Maggie's purple and white track standard will hit the internet soon.
