#video | Rad Race Fixed42 2016

RAD RACE is a bunch of friends and bike enthusiasts who came together in 2013 to organize wild bike races all over Europe and to create their own cycling apparel. These guys are truly living their dream and started their own cycling brand, putting all their hearts, time and energy into that thing. Their races are exciting and adrenalin-filled events with loud music, fun people and breathtaking competitions. They unite all the different bike crews, scenes and people for one event - all with a professional DIY and punkrock attitude.

The FIXED42 is the unofficial Fixed Gear World Championships - a radical race for brakeless fixed gear track bikes leading a Marathon distance of 42.195 km on clean asphalt, Autobahn and through the inner city heart of Berlin. In 2016, there were 500 riders from 27 nations racing for the unofficial title of the fastest fixed gear rider on the planet. Extremely fast. Extremely dangerous. And extremely exciting.
