Team Mountain Khakis Conquers!

Congratulations to Team Mountain Khakis! Tom Sollady just won the Roswell Crit in Georgia (NRC and Round 2 of USA Crits Speedweek), and Mark Hekman took 2nd at Athens Twilight. I was there for Twilight and it was an impressive display by the entire team. Richmond Pro Cycling also made their national-level debut and did not disappoint. Expect more from both teams all week.

I don't mean to hate but.....

"Outlier just launched their Merino Wool preorder. You know the drill by now. Hand made in NYC from premium merino wool, which is more environmentally friendly than cashmere and wont stink like hell after you wear it day after day after day."
-everybody knows where this came from.
I don't want to pick on people and/or companies, but just when the hell did cashmere even enter the equation in cycling clothes. Are they trying to fool us into believing that it's what we used to use? Maybe I'm just off the back and just don't know what people are wearing in the big city, but I doubt there's someone thinking, "man, this outlier hoodie is way less smelly than that cashmere hoodie I was thinking about buying, and it only takes 2/3 of my unemployment check to buy it rather than the whole thing!"
I'm not knocking anyone's purchasing decisions or the price of the hoodie. It's their business and I appreciate the fact that it's US-made out of an environmentally friendly material. I'm going to stop now.

not sure what i think of theo bos right now

That's track legend Theo Bos grabbing Tour of Turkey leader Daryl Impey's jersey and bringing them both down. Impey still won the overall because it was in the final sprint of the last stage but ended up with some serious injuries. Theo's not really giving trackies a good name right now.

$20 White Tires!

i just added some new tires to the keirin culture webstore - 700x23 and 28 CST all white tires. The best part is that they're only $20 each. These make great street tires and seen pretty durable, especially for the price.
