BACK TO TRACK RECAP + RESULTS

This past weekend on Saturday we held our highly anticipated BACK TO TRACK trick track competition. It’s the first trick track specific competition that’s happened since around 2009 and it was a major success! To give some info about how the day went, we started at our original spot and people started showing up. It was the PERFECT spot. Basketball court, poles to spin off, and a bank next to it to do tricks on.

Almost immediately, a park official came up and told us we all had to leave. It was a scramble to find a new spot and get everyone there, but we ended up at a park in long beach that worked out perfectly (sign of relief). We had about 50 people total and the energy was great. With the resurgence of Trick Track riding, I think people were excited to have an event specifically for it. We’re gonna be dropping a bunch of photos from the day this week as well as a video recap on our Youtube channel, so keep an eye out for that. If you didn’t make it out, I highly recommend you make it out next year cause it was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came, supported, rode, and everything in between.

TALES OF THE WEST COAST FULL LENGTH

This one gets the SMC seal of approval. Man, really really proud of Guillermo for pulling through with this and putting together a full comprehensive video. He’s had this vision and has been working at it for about two years, you can definitely tell a lot of hours went into it. So many good tricks, so many good riders, and a really good look into the LA cycling scene as a whole. I’m not that involved in most of the cycling scene so it’s good that Memo is out here documenting it and spreading the good word of trick track. Hell I haven’t even heard of most of the dudes doing tricks in this and I can’t tell you how excited that gets me for the future of this scene. Your boy even got some clips of that I was pretty stoked on around the 15:50 mark. Hyped to be part of it.

On the filmmaking side, Guillermo absolutely crushed it. Really great shots of LA, the tricks, the mashing, and the music choices were on point. Job well done Memo and everyone involved. If you liked this and want to support, make sure you check out Slowwheelz Cycling!

INTRODUCING | SLOWWHEELZ

SLOWWHEELZ is a new fixed gear freestyle based apparel brand started by young tarck extraordinaire Guillermo Galindo and friends. I love seeing rider owned brands start within our community, especially when it’s done right like this. Memo made sure to represent minorities and compiled the team entirely of people of color too, you love to see it. They just dropped their first line of shirts and stickers and they’re almost already sold out, so hop on it while you can and be on the lookout for more stuff from them soon. SHOP HERE
