This past Saturday was the Redbull Mini Velodrome event where fixed gear riders around South Florida competed for $1000 top prize based on the fastest lap time. Two riders each went head to head per round until the winner was determined. The minidrome is tiny and steep and lots of riders ate it flying off the track. The trick is to have a small gear in order to get up to speed fast. We had a lot of good local talent but the top prize ultimately went to some British guy wearing the weirdest get up. Overall, Wynwood was alive Saturday night with this event (which was one big party) and Artwalk going on. Earlier, 26th street was closed due to the Maker's Fair so Saturday was a busy day.
At Red Bull Mini Drome, skill, speed, balance, and braves are brought together on this steep, shrunken down version of the traditional velodrome. With track speeds exceeding 30mph and course measurements of 46 ft. x 24 ft. and 8 ft. high at the end banking, it is sure to be one of the most challenging and treacherous thrill rides to hit the fixed-gear scene.
Bikes all packed up and ready to head south.
Our own Alex Morris being interviewed by the Redbull announcer guy and shocking him away with his "and tonight I'm going fuck her in the pussy" announcement, to the roaring applause of all. Welcome to Miami.
