On November 15, 2009 the people at TakeoverLA threw a race that consisted of 3 sprints and 2 sets of stairclimbs that eventually lead to a free for all race to the Bike Day LA event in Hollywood. We decided to film the event to showcase some of our local cyclists while also creating an 8 mile visual trip through Los Angeles in a racers perspective. Enjoy.
The previews of this made me expect it to be really boring, but that was probably the most enjoyable ‘fixed gear’ video I’ve seen in a long time. Well shot, well edited, good soundtrack.
I love this, it’s probably because they actually had an objective the fixed gear films i’ve seen so far have been aimlessly riding around (impressive all the same).
