2013 HoBootleg @ Tour d'Afrique
2014 HoBootleg GEO @ Darien Gap
A new chapter begins with GEO, the ultimate adventure-bike for the offroad travel, which will take you where no one has before. Tested and refined crossing the incredible Darien Gap, the most secluded jungle on the earth, between Colombia and Panama, where the Pan-American road stops.
Ridden by Lucas Brunelle and Chas Christiansen, the GEO is the latest evolution of the Cinelli Bootleg adventure bikes line, expanding the travel-experience also to the off-road lands.
Lucas Brunelle is the world-famous filmmaker who introduced the first-person point-of-view shooting technique in cycling races thanks to his great riding skills and the innovative helmet-integrated cameras-system with which is filming and reporting the most extreme race contests all over the globe since more than ten years.
Chas Christiansen, 100% pure San Francisco, is one of the top riders of the Cinelli Mash Team, iconic figure of the fixed-gear culture, always on the highest steps of Criteriums, Alleycats and Cyclo-Cross Single-Speed races and podiums.

Heavy rain brought a tense day leading up to this year's Red Hook Crit. Threats of cancellation and worries of increased danger on the course were relieved when the race finally started, 2 hours before its scheduled time, with a modified course and a shortened number of laps. Nevertheless riders came out in full force to battle the elements and each other.
Now in it's 7th year, what started out as an informal birthday party for organizer David Trimble has become an international event. Hundreds of competitors from over 20 different countries descend on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook to race on brakeless fixed-gear track bikes, and this year in the rain. The race is fast and intense, with only the strongest and smartest of riders able to overcome the fury and seize the title.
Ya en su 7º año, lo que comenzó para el organizador David Trimble como una fiesta de cumpleaños informal, hoy se ha convertido en un evento internacional. Cientos de participantes de 20 países diferentes llegaron a la terminal de cruceros de Brooklyn en Red Hook para competir en bicicletas de piñón fijo, este año bajo la lluvia. La carrera es rápida e intensa, solo los corredores más fuertes e inteligentes son capaces de superar su intensidad y hacerse con el título.
