The Mengoni Gran Prix was a few weeks ago, and I'm thrilled to announce that Affinity's own junior talent Sebastian Bobe got second place in the 12 and under category. Sebastian is the son of Alfred Bobe, a messenger legend and king of Monster Track. Sebastian is definitely following in his fathers foot steps, he raced Mengoni on his fixed gear bike and the race came down to a final sprint where Sebastian led out the sprint but was nipped at the line by a boy who was on a geared road bike.
Mengoni Gran Prix is one of the biggest NYC road races, it takes place in central park which is pretty hilly to ride fixed for a kid or an adult!
Sebastian is also a member of the Star Track youth program a the Kissena Velodrome, and he regularly wins the local junior races on the track. Congrats to Sebastian, Laura and Alfred for this great achievement!
