  7. monkeyahhhhhh on August 4, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    Loved the video but very random question. What brand/model are Leon’s sun glasses?? Would love a pair!



  8. Stéphane on August 4, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    hey, what’s this handlebar ? It seems to have some kind of "grip" where you usually put the brake lever. Thank you



  9. Oliver Bork on August 5, 2022 at 12:00 am

    Where in the netherlands was this? Looks awesome!



  10. Pompey Monkey on August 5, 2022 at 12:00 am

    That looks like a lot of fun (even if painful!).
    Reminds me of my restricted-gear junior racing days. It’s not about power so much as rapid acceleration to a very high cadence and keeping it there.
    Nice one. 🙂



  11. 두람 on August 5, 2022 at 12:00 am

    So coooool 🔥



  12. dan cintus on August 5, 2022 at 12:01 am

    what gear racial you guys using



  20. Bernardo on August 5, 2022 at 12:13 am

    You should do a review on some bikes people are using in the racings, and tell us newbies what to get and the best bikes to get started in single speed/fixie



  21. Andrew Cotton on August 5, 2022 at 12:14 am

    I’m looking into the racing scene I have a fixie. It’s all still fight but I run 5214 is my gear ratio currently running fyxation straps but I do have time attack clips which I might be afraid to use because of my gear ratio



  22. Caroline Ramos on August 5, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Can you recommend a beginner fixie bike for me ? How many teeth on a crank and cog? That is easy on up hill and flat ?



  35. SHANNON SA on August 5, 2022 at 12:28 am

    Bro I always like to join this race



  38. Gabriel Schoeneich on August 5, 2022 at 12:30 am

    Hey guys, great video!
    What is the usual gear ratio for this kind of racing? Around 3 or even more than that?
    Are there any rules what kind of chainring and sprocket to use?

    I am cycling with the standard 46:16 and enjoy it for everyday use. Just for longer tours on the weekend I am thinking to go a little harder, maybe switching the chainring to 48 or the sprocket to 15t if possible.



  39. Perico De Los Palotes on August 5, 2022 at 12:32 am

    las carreras están muy bien, lo demás… parecen críos joder



  40. Jonathan Araújo on August 5, 2022 at 12:32 am

  45. Jesse Shotland on August 5, 2022 at 12:39 am

    I did a track race in Canada in January. This is definitely not the first fixed gear race of 2020.



  46. Kurniawan Bambang on August 5, 2022 at 12:41 am
