Embrocation @ Boldsprints Boston

Embrocation Magazine and Cambridge Bicycle co-sponsored the premiere of the Boston Boldsprints, presented by BostonBiker.org, held last night at All Asia Bar in Cambridge, MA. We had a great turn out and a bunch of sweaty dudes and ladies by the end of the event. 666 meter open qualifying ran from 5-7pm, and the best 8 times advanced into the finals, which were single elimination 999 meter runs. Ouch! The resistance units made it incredibly painful after about 15 seconds, and took the advantage away from the pure spinners. Check back for more information on this event because a 6 week series is planned for the near future. Thanks to Mark at All Asia for hosting the event!


The final race of the competition saw Eric Davidson besting Christian Eager (Quad Cycles) to become the very first Boldsprint Champion. I think Christian wants a rematch, but will have to wait until the series begins in a few weeks.
