Bone Machine Track Bike Show
The 2nd edition of the Bone Machine Crit descended upon Portland the weekend of July 6th. Athletes from across the country (even internationally) arrived to compete in the highly technical track bike race.
In addition to the main event, the race weekend included a track meet at the Alpenrose Velodrome, bike polo tournament, alleycat race, and a track bike exhibition with goldsprints hosted by Western Bikeworks!
The show was curated by Amy Danger, a collector of unique track bicycles. Bike stands around the store were filled with rare and historic track bikes from all over the world. The display featured bikes such as former professional cyclist Mario Cipollini's Cannondale Track, a custom-built Bishop track bike, and a hand-welded Ground Up Speed Shop bike with a painted helmet to match! From handbuilt frames to racing machines, a walk around the store brought you to all corners of track bike culture.
Nothing brings the party to life like a Goldsprint tournament and when the time came to race, the stoke was high! Passion-fueled racers took to the rollers to contest the title of fastest on the day. While only one can win the tournament, it was all smiles for everyone.
A big thank you and kudos to Bone Machine Crit and all of its sponsors for putting together a fantastic race weekend, Amy Danger for curating a beautiful exhibition, and Kaya Lydamore for organizing Goldsprints!
