Wolfpack Hustle: LA Times coverage

December 27, 2012 in CRAY SHIT, Los Angeles, Wolfpack A by Roadblock

Fabian Vazquez myself and Hernian Montenegro talk with the LA Times about Wolfpack Hustle. The one thing that I would like to say is that the article paints us more as scofflaws than we really are. We respect the reds, traffic and time the lights. For a park starved city like LA, riding a bicycle at night on a Monday is not the worst activity people can engage in. in fact, it is one of the healthier things we can do.

Game Changer: Dwyane Wade at Miami Critical Mass and The Bicycle Generation.

December 7, 2012 in CRAY SHIT by Roadblock

Can’t get over how cool this is… When I first heard of Critical Mass ages ago before the group ride phenomenon took over LA it was posed to me in a negative light. It was talked about in the media as a protest or as agitative to cars… It came as a surprise just how fun and non confrontational Critical Mass actually was the first time I rode on it.

It is with clips such as this shot of Dwyane Wade speaking from almost a child-like enthusiasm for “the people” and showing a genuine love for cycling that will finally break down the barriers preventing real conversations about encouraging and facilitating cycling across the nation.

Another game changer? The advent of sophisticated DIY marketing put out by passionate talented artists from every corner of the world who happen to love cycling. Cycling this decade has inspired a massive grass roots DIY marketing industry “funded” mostly by sweat heart and love. Witness the quality of this piece put out by Miami Bike Scene. These films are timeless. We will look back on this decade as the bicycle generation.

Amgen Tour Of California

November 27, 2012 in CRAY SHIT by Fabian Vazquez

Wolfpack Hustle LA is very excited for the tour of california announcement of the 2013 route. The route seems to be a bit of a departure from its previous routes. Trying to expand from the usual big city, to the outer limits of California for what were hoping will be an exciting week of racing.

From Pavedmag.com “Starting in Escondido, just north of San Diego, the race will wind its way up the state, moving inland before heading out to the coast and up to the race finish in Santa Rosa, the host of last year’s race start. The new reversed route is sure to introduce a few new aspects to the week’s racing. With much of the state’s winds running from north-to-south, that could have a heavy impact on some of the racing, especially the coastal stages. Temperature could also come into play with riders heading inland to the Palm Desert area early in the race. While still early in the year, temperatures there can routinely enter the 90′s during the month of May.

Still, the change of direction will be sure to inject some refreshed excitement into the race, especially with the new addition of the summit finish atop Mt. Diablo, which is sure to animate the penultimate day of racing, if not decide the race itself. With the individual time trial always playing a decisive roll in the race, the city of San Jose should provide plenty of fanfare for the important stage—it’s the only city to have played a part in all eight editions of the race.

Riders have proved receptive to the change, and the fans are likely to follow suit come May.

“I’m very excited to hear about the new south-north route for the 2013 Amgen Tour of California,” remarked Chris Horner, winner of the race’s 2011 edition.

“After growing up in San Diego, I love seeing the race back on the roads I’ve ridden for the past 25 years. Being welcomed by thousands of fans in Escondido in 2009 was a highlight of my career, and I’m sure the crowds will be even more amazing for the 2013 edition.”
