Tarcking under the bridge.

This past Saturday, I got an invitation to come check out a BBQ/ trickcomp/ race under the Seventh St. bridge. Three deep, we rolled to the spot, not really knowing what we were getting onto. Came upon a full film crew and a lot our friends from various walks of urban cycling. From State champs to Professional FGFS to local bike media was there. The setting was awesome, industrial and under the Bridge. Great location. After meeting with the organizers, we came to find out that it was the start of a documentary on under ground cultures and sub-cultures in America (more on that in a upcoming post). Since the filmmakers were LA cyclists, they decided to start with LA bike culture (the best and biggest out there). Trackstand comp and games of footdown started the afternoon off, then Ace, Micheal Chacon and I were asked to judge the FGFS comp, and we got to see the next generation of Trick kids throwing down for us. About 10 entered and we eventually came to the conclusion that Jamil Grey was the overall winner. All though Rory's Fakie wheeelie stole the show for me. I couldn't stay for the whole time (had to rush off to go to roller derby), but it was a fun afternoon in the sun, and it felt like a classic fun day on bikes.
