“Ryokou follows the journey of Aussie Cyclist Shane Perkins from his home in Adelaide post London Olympics to taking residence in Japan whilst competing in the 2012/13 Keirin competition.”
I have always loved all things njs since waaaay back when I first got into track bikes. I think I’ll always have a soft spot for sparkly japanese steel.
Lucas Brunelle’s stuff is so amazing to watch. It’s usually the best thing going at the Bike Film Festival. I’m really stoked he is putting all of it together in one big feature. Going to be epic for sure. Available July 1st!
I’m heading down to the Giro di San Francisco right now because fellow POMB member Steve Torterelli is in the damn race. I’ll be chilling at the Cykel booth, hope to you see out there.
Yesterday in the Giro, the Belgian sprinter Wouter Weylandt was tragically killed on a downhill descent. Apparently he got passed and was looking behind him to see if he should wait for other riders that got passed, and either his pedal or his handlebar clipped a wall going about 40-50 mphs, and that was pretty much it. A lot of other riders said they saw him fall pretty hard, but no one ever thought it would be this bad. Someone hasn’t died in a major bike race in something like 16 years so this comes as a really big shock to the cycling community. People outside of cycling think the Tour de France is the biggest bike race in the world, but people in cycling know that the Giro is the toughest. R.I.P Wouter Weylandt you will be missed. Below is a tribute to him from today’s stage.
This is one of the best things I’ve seen in a long time.
