Tracko goes track side at the innaugural WCL Team Trak Premiere.

The premiere of the World Cycling League kicked off in LA recently and Affinity is proud to have had our Dutch track champion Patrick Kos and New Zealand's Patrick Jones get the invite to race.

Who better to cover a track meet in LA but our buddy Kyle Kelley aka Tracko, co owner of Golden Saddle Cyclery. Kyle put his spin on documenting the event along with Cesar Alvarez.

The World Cycling League's mission is to create a new racing format they call Team Trak. With Team Trak, there's six teams, each team consisting of 7 male and female sprinters and endurance racers. They all competing individually but for points towards an overall team win. Pretty rad right?

The racing is easy to follow and you get to root for your fav team and rider. Thank you WCL... well done!

Checkout the photo set, and tune in tomorrow for #trackotv.

Gibby Hatton: American track cyclist, Japanese Keirin racer, World Champion, Coach... legend.

In professional sports, the very feat of calling yourself "professional" is massive. That said, there are only a handful of professional athletes who have achieved massive moments of sporting greatness... moments which define a career. Moments so great that you could walk away being completely satisfied, and with out regret.

American track racer Gil Hatton has seen success far more than most professionals will ever see. His passion for cycling is undeniable, and his ability to achieve greatness is infectious...

Here is part 1 of Gibby Hatton: American track racer, Japanese Keirin racer, World Champion, Coach... legend.

Gil's first major win came at 26 years old after taking a pivotal bronze medal in the Keirin at the 1983 track cycling world championships in Zurich Switzerland. That race would for ever change his career... Gil was given an invite and would become the first American to race the Keirin in Japan.

Circa late 80's Japan.
