In the Cuts on a Bianchi Pista Concept.

Check the white bike. The stickers are off except for the one along the top tube. Yup, it's a Bianchi Pista Concept. This clip is just a snippet of what John Cardiel is all about. Aside from the language (hope corpo doesn't cringe too much while watching...) the clip covers a small session with Cardiel in Sacramento, CA (Sac); his spots to ride, mostly from his days skateboarding.

Most fixed gear riders were just going into Kindergarten in the early to mid-90s when JC was making money as a skateboard and snowboard pro. I remember seeing videos of Cardiel slashing lines and drops on the mountain; endless powder runs. His style on the snow echoed his search and destroy ethics when he skated. And as you can guess, that has transferred over to his fixed gear riding. Pick up a copy of Macaframa-- search and destroy style.

In short, I'm glad to see John G. Cardiel still kicking it, whether on boards or bikes, especially a Bianchi.
