I've never heard of a fox hunt race in particular, but there is an extensive racing culture among bicycle couriers. These races are usually alleycat races, and generally involve riding to several checkpoints in sequence, sometimes performing tasks at those checkpoints. Searching YouTube for bicycle messenger races, alleycat racing, and similar terms, will ...

"Citiwide" brand front tyre (can't find this brand mentioned on the web) Dual pivot rim brakes - They look curiously solid and thick. Noted its a right-hand front-...

Well this specific one is no real event but as said before I think it is inspired by alleycat races. In the mountainbike world there is actually a Fox Hunt Event organised by Red Bull: https://www.redbull.com/ie-en/events/red-bull-foxhunt Although here the "Hounds" get a head start and the pro rider tries to get in front of the pack.

Because I'm a mountain bike guy, and I think the stories and shots are way more interesting (sorry roadies): Where The Trail Ends Strength in Numbers Life Cycles Won't Back Down Rad Company And of course all the old-school freeride films like Kranked.

I replaced the rubbish brakes and finishing kit. The sticker with the brand on the down tube is above the clear coat and peels off. It's quite flimsy. That indicates that the ...

Red bike looks to me like an On One Inbred, the head tube logo looks similar and the rear seat stays have a distinctive design. Image source: Chris Berkley Then the forks could be Rock Shox and brakes may be Avids, but v hard to tell with the image resolution (bikes aren’t the focus of the shots to be fair). Note that if you want one it’ll have to be ...

There are some moving clips at but blurring detracts from the details The red bike seems to be too small for the rider - which may be because he's just stolen it and has not adjusted to fit his height. Noted it has a front suspension and a disk brake. Also, most of the bikes used in the film look like BSO MTBs with ...

From Reddit: 2016ish SE Bikes Tripel. Vera CityWide are Fuji eom tires, not sure that's the same? Why the yellow tyre? Im pretty sure thats a trainer specific tire like this Looks like a fairly basic steel frame with 3-speed nexus hub.

Blood Sweat Gears is a documentary on Garmin Cycling Team, a good alternative to watching TdF dvds.

Hell on Wheels is a German movie portraying Erik Zabel and Rolf Aldag during the Tour de France 2003. It gives quite some insights into cycling on that level (while it ignores doping and we meanwhile know that the participants did quite some doping during that time ...)
