Thank you Red Hook Crit for having us host track day, and a huge debt of gratitude to Affinity rider and Japanese Keirin Pro Toshifumi Kodama for lending his expertise to host a free keirin clinic.

When your holder doesn't pay attention...

A wild moment at yesterday's Track Provincial Championships at the Mattamy Velodrome in Canada... 3 of our Deluxe Cycles team mates and #kieranleahy got caught up in a pretty big mishap.

The holder who was far left did not sufficiently hold up BJ Olson, then well you can see what happened.

Affinity/Pink Rhino custom team edition frame sets!

Affinity is proud to share the 2016 Affinity Pink Rhino team edition Kissena aero track frame sets.

Want one? Sorry you've gotta be a Rhino team member to get your hands on one of these custom painted jems.

That said... if you're looking to have custom team frames in 2017, hit us up and we'd be stoked to custom paint a team edition set of Kissena's for your crew!

Super stoked on how these frames came out... Horse Cycles and Ben Faclon killed it on the custom paint!

Ash Duban slays the Redhook Crit London... Congrats on 3rd place, Top Antagonist and taking the lead in the Redhook Crit series!

Ash is on fire! The Redhook Crit women's race was one for the books. Dani King (Olympic Gold Medalist) from team Great Britain took an amazing victory by lapping the entire field. Congrats to Dani.... but it was our very own Ash Duban who took home 3rd place by bridging up to the break away solo and in doing so Ash took home the top antagonist award and subsequently took the overall lead in the Redhook Crit series.

Next stop Barcelona!

Redhook Crit carnage...

In bike racing there's ups and downs, things go right and at times it goes all wrong.

Affinity (and a ton of other racers) had those ups and downs at the @redhookcrit 9 last night.

Though we're stoked Ash got 2nd (yeahash!), the rest of the team got pretty banged up.

Our rider Donnie Clarke was the guy who unfortunately couldn't deviate his line and hit the motorcycle.

Our other (male) rider Patrick Jones got caught up in both crashes and took some hard hits.

To too it off, our fab rider Kate Sherwin crashed hard on the last lap (in great position). She was taken off by ambulance and was fortunately ok with bruises, cuts and a concussion.

Bike racers are warriors who roll together, race together, crash together and win together.

I hope everyone involved in the crashes are doing ok and recovering in good spirits. The Affinity crew is doing alright and will come back to fight another day.

Congrats Ash on your 2nd place!

Tracko TV features Affinity's finest live from the World Cycling League.

Check out Tracko TV... Kyle Kelley aka Tracko came through with this rad little edit of our boys Patrick Kos and Patrick Jones, tearing up the boards at the premiere of the World Cycling League. Thanks Kyle!

What's the WCL? 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 compete individually but for points towards an overall team win.

Pretty rad right? Support folks that support track racing!
