Steve kept saying his PMA—aka STOKE LEVEL—was suboptimal, as in maybe 2 out of 10 at best. But this photograph tells a different story. This was taken moments after he completed a wee in the magically-lit Centaur Woods and I’ll be a Silly Susan if he isn't positively beaming with joy.
Manual for Speed will pay 500 dollars for any information related to the capture of this man’s kit. If you know this Legend and can put us in contact with him and/or if you know where to find his next-level steezy AF get-up for purchase, we will give you $500 dollars—no questions asked.
Hey Hungary, save some style for the rest of us! You can’t have all the track suits and one-hour-photo creep shoes. PS: for reals though, what’s in the cooler?
If you’re shaving your legs before the big game when the big game is the 2018 UCI Women's Elite Road Race, are you lite-LARPing?
Steve, trying to make sense of the of Belgian Apocalyptic Tin Man. [See below.]
Polish Corner was LEGIT. Great vibes. Taylor Phinney was in there running full emotional and cosmic support for Kasia Niewiadoma. I was walking by when someone grabbed me from behind and it was Taylor and I was like DUDE, IT’S YOU HOW ARE YOU? And then Steve walked up and we all caught-up for a second. We promised to come back and take photos and do some Gram stories and but then when we returned he was gone. I asked him about it later and he said he got lost. Classic Taylor. Anyway, the scene over there was tight.
Mapei: still the best kit ever made ever. JUST LOOK AT THIS HAT. Never gets old.

Dear Dude in Denim Shorts: You were a highlight for me. I’ll be honest, this UCI crowd is not the best Sex Party spectacle but you’re a gem. A) You look great—great tan, great shoes, tasteful sunglasses, nice hair, a total package deal, and B) you’re good at lounging—great posture, rakish squint. Basically you're killing it.
Is this a cuddle puddle? Was this organized? Was this synchronized? Is this a cult thing? I never seen a pile of sleeping dudes before. It’s cute, it reminds me of puppies if puppies could house a case of Stiegl before noon on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
This OG probs started running side hat game for strategic reasons related to the relationship between his bod and the sun. But when it works it works, and at some point it clearly started working for him on this whole other level too, it started doing double duty. Practicality AND Steezicality.
Two of the best kits I’ve seen in FOREVER. I’m really loving this NASCAR vibe.
And this is what you see when you look up the word “rad” in the dictionary. There’s just a picture of this kit and a picture of Mark Gonzales kick-flipping the Embarcadero gap.
This little Italian enclave here was doing it right the whole time. Solid crew.

Thanks for your submissions!

Yesterday we gave our ‘Gram followers a challenge:

 

“CONTE$T!!!!!!!!🤑🤑 Use six of these nine letters painted on the 2018 UCI world Champ circuit next to Fan Zone #1, to spell something interesting. One SIX LETTER word, any word, about anything. Noun, proper noun, verb, adjective, place name, whatever. Just something interesting. To be clear you have:

“Put that word in a sentence about the 2018 UCI world championships. Send us the sentence. The best sentence (our favorite) wins a set of Bar Tape.”
