Red Hook Crit 2013 a film by Christian Thormann from crihs on Vimeo.

Red Hook Crit has been held since 2008 in Red Hook, a neighborhood in Brooklyn that is over looked by the financial district of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Moving to New York and discovering alleycats through a mutual friend, David Trimble started to be more curious with fixed geared bikes or track bikes. For his birthday in 2008, he decided to host a race. With his interest in formula one racing and bikes, he decided to throw a criterium. Not just any crit. this crit would involve, no gears, no shifters and most importantly, no brakes. Sounds insane, huh? Well not to those who took part in the first ever Red Hook Crit. The 18 lap race, around 3 city blocks would change the way fixed gears are ridden in a unsanctioned, non-alleycat format to date. Now the Event travels the world, bringing competitors from all over the globe and all sorts of backgrounds.

This was the 6 time track bikes would invade the quiet neighborhood, with little public transportation coming in or out. Cab or bikes is your best method. With over 1,000 in attendance, Red Hook Crit has put Red Hook on the map for cyclist around the world.

The Greatest Show on Earth (74 mins) from RAPHA on Vimeo.

One of the essential road racing films, The Greatest Show on Earth documents the dramatic and captivating 1974 Tour of Italy. The 57th edition was one of the most exciting and closely fought Grand Tours of that decade, when Eddy Merckx had to first depose José Manuel Fuente to claim the pink leader’s jersey, then fight off the young Italian, Gianbattista Baronchelli, on the final, dramatic mountain stage. It remains one of the great scenes in cycling cinema, the backdrop to the stage provided by the towering spires of Tre Cime di Lavaredo, with the tifosi screaming at the roadside as Merckx, Fuente and Baronchelli battled to the summit.

Capturing the chaos and fanaticism of cycle racing in Italy, The Greatest Show on Earth will be showing on rapha.cc today. It is also available to buy on DVD from worldcycling.com.

LUCM / 3CIME from luomocolmartello on Vimeo.

September 2012
During the 1974 Giro D’Italia The 20th tappa starts from Pordenone and ending to the Tre Cime Di Lavaredo.
Inspired by the vintage video report of that tappa, we decided to ride the same roads in a quiet cloudy morning
Mid-Season rides are stranges. You can ride in a pleasent late summer climax or you can ride a lot of chilometri under the rain.
That day especially, we where lucky, where “lucky” means that didn’t snow.

WE WERE NEVER BORN from CREAM Bikes & Things on Vimeo.

We Were Never Born by Dosnoventa.
With the support of Lacoste Live.

“I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree on a cold winter day. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don’t worry. It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever.
Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity.
We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea.
I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space, but the emptiness of space will never crumble away because it was never born.”

Vignette no 2 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.

The Deus family is ever-growing, with ambassadors and advocates joining from all points of the compass. However the latest addition to said family comes literally from our door step. 15 year Temple old shop grom Riman Jayadi grew up in Canggu and cut his teeth on the waves we call our local break.

Because life without bike, cars, motorbike and girls is a waste of time
