OCB Crit was awesome held in Irvine, CA. Very little traffic, over 100+ racers, and great weather made this a very fast and fun crit! I got to the race pretty early with Raul. We unloaded the bikes and took a couple laps of the course to get familiar before everyone got there.
Everyone came out from GLK, Leader Bikes, Throne Cycles, Engine 11, Pure Fix Racing, Lincoln Heights Cyclery, Mobbin Monday / Mobbin Unknown, Team Zero Miedo and Aventon Factory Team! We also had the pleasure of having Julio Boostamante come out! One of the most talented photographers supporting our growing Fixed Gear Community! Thank you!
Also huge shoutout to my teammate Bryan for killing it today!. You did great brotha and took your pulls at the front! Seeing you killing it definitely inspired me during the race. We both finished inside the top 15 so that was a nice confidence boost going into next week. Much love!
Huge shoutout to the lady riders who came out and raced hard! Congrats to Asia Morris of Engine 11 for taking the win! Briana Johnson of GLK took second! Huge shoutout to Elaina Alvarez of Engine 11 who fought hard for 3rd. (P.s. feel better soon!!)
Now let the post race celebration begin! I love how our cycling community is so friendly and all about having fun. Huge thanks to Jrock and Fixed Gear Beer Crew for bringing the podium beers!!! Much love to everyone who came out and shoutout to the homies from San Diego who drove all the way up to support our crit scene! Our Fixed Gear Community is growing and LA is becoming a mecca for Fixed Gear racing. Lets keep making history fam!! See you at Wolfpack Hustle Civic Center Crit next week!
Good times! See you at the next one!
