Columbus alley cat recap

Street sharks officially launched its first race with great success!

The race was 1/8 mile sprints down a perfectly paved straight away in one of Columbus's warehouse districts.

Sprints were head to head, with the winner of each race proceeding to the next one.

Lots of people raced, but more importantly, lots of people hung out, watched, and cheered!! Some raced legit track bikes, other raced fixies, single speeds, and even gear road bikes (without shifting). We had lots of jean shorts facing kit dudes all night.... team jean shorts triumphed in the end!

Music was provided by GoBikeColumbus

Next race TBA, hope to see ya'll then!!!


has came and passed. We had 40 racers in all (34 male, 6 female). Kristen Arnold took 1st female and Josh Direen took first male. In the coming days we will be putting up full results as well as points awards and giving a little more info on what ya need to do to secure yourself a spot in the final race. We will also be putting up some photos from the first race as well as naming the date for next months race!
