Best ‘Pseudo-Underground’ Bike Event of Year

We have raced in the All City Championship in Minneapolis for a few years. (See a report from last year’s event here.) For the event this year, which is in two weeks, GearJunkie is a sponsor + we’ll have a good share of riders out there for the Bandit Cross event (Aug. 16) and the marquee Alleycat race on August 18. The multi-event weekend is one of the best pseudo-underground bike gatherings of the year. Full weekend schedule here plus details on the poster below. Be there!
