In this short film, you will meet Nick Geddes. Leukaemia survivor and rider.
Filmmaker, Leo Zuckerman says:
"More than a few late nights and weekends ago, Nick and I set out to make this little film. As an intermittent project, it had it’s challenges, but Nick’s an inspiring dude, and we’ve done our best to represent his story through this short vignette. Enjoy."
We featured the Red Hook Crit 2014 in Issue 3 of Conquista and also the beautiful Neversink race in Issue 4, brought to you by the same organiser.
Below is the video from the Red Hook Crit which is superb. There are so many aspects to this type of racing that are appealing. Firstly, it is off the grid in terms of not being sanctioned by the UCI. The second is the passion of the racers from around the world. Thirdly, it is riding a track bike on a street circuit. Fourth is the camaraderie which is something unique and understood by those of us that love the sport.
It is packed full of amazing photography from the Giro d’Italia, Giro Rosa, La Course, the Tour de France, Tour of Utah, Touring with Jack Chevell and so much more. We have some thoughtful articles and a little tale at the beginning on how this magazine came to be.
We have loved putting this 312 page birthday edition together. We hope you love it too.
So you have that sinking feeling after the Tour de France? What do I do now?
Firstly, check out the link below for a recap from Issue 1 of the Lofoten ride in Norway with Trasé. They are a few pictures that you have not seen before as we did not have the space to publish all the fantastic content.
Secondly, finish reading Issue 3 and get ready for Issue 4 coming out @ 15 August.
In Issue 0 of Conquista we put together a little feature on our beer fuelled odyssey on the Alp d’Huez climb with several thousand other revellers. In case you missed it, here are some of those images.
