Every year ahead of the Cycle Messenger World Championships, couriers in other cities hold alleycats to support the event. This weekend we had the Berlin one. Silly video of it, as ever.
Each city that wants to take part is put into a hat and paired up with another. Then each city sends the other prizes from their own city and works together on ideas for themes and race formats.
My friend Dom organised the Berlin alleycat, whilst I mostly followed him around taking photos as he shouted strange things. Here’s what it looked like. Prizes from the ever-excellent Keirin, 8Bar Bikes, Fahrwerk and Anselm.
This is us sorting out stuff the day before the race. If you like watching bullitts carrying large amounts of beer, then you are in for a treat.
The Polish guys from Szczecin came to Berlin for the day.
