The Hack Bike Derby 2016
The Hack Bike Derby is an annual invitational event, in which frame builders from around the UK build a bike ‘quickly’ and cheaply, to compete in a weekend of races. Burf and Tam took part in the 2016 event, creating very different machines to race on…
The event weekend was the culmination of an epic week of cutting, welding, brazing, bodging, tinkering, swearing and generally hacking.
Weather on the Saturday was biblical rain and wind; an ark would have been a more suitable race vehicle for the dual slalom race. Mercifully Sunday brought sunshine, but the tracks were still drenched from the previous 24 hour deluge.
Adam Gasson was on hand to capture the action throughout the weekend – here are a few of his pictures.
The Hack Bike Derby event was created by The Bicycle Academy, and supported by Bell Helmets, Bontrager and Break Fluid Coffee Co.
