Playing with Fire at the Raleigh Singlespeed Derby: Worlds 2013 Gallery
If you were in Louisville for the 2013 World Championships, you have raced, spectated, or just heard rumors about the Raleigh Singlespeed Derby held Thursday night in a nearby park. “We’re not saying that there will be fire,” they said weeks before the race, “but we have a lot of insurance.”
And as you can see in this gallery by Matthew Lasala, they didn’t disappoint. A pyrotechnics expert who used to work at a local Six Flags lent a hand in course design, and fire-eaters thrilled crowds during the largely bourbon-fueled race. Cyclocross Magazine’s own John Proppe took the win, and to find out more about the race, check out our “report” here.
