Daniel van der Weide races his Bike Friday Pocket Rocket Pro in the Hungry Dog Criterium in Mesa, AZ.

Bike Friday owner Daniel van der Weide was a little hesitant at first, but when officials gave him the thumbs up, he pedaled away on his Pocket Rocket Pro in the Masters 50-60 division at the Hungry Dog Criterium in Mesa, AZ.

“I was apprehensive, but the official let me in,” van der Weide said, “and nobody gave me anything but compliments. Helps if you can stay up front and prove your credibility, and it also helps to look well ahead in the corners, since small wheels carry a lot less angular momentum. Sprinting wasn’t as easy, either, but I gave my teammate a decent lead-out and finished in the bunch.”
