If you didn't hear the big news, our own Christina Peck once more took home the overall prize at the largest North American Cycle Courier Championships in years. New York threw it down with over 400 riders signing up to take on a closed streets course in Brooklyn. A whole slew of All-City's courier team was there representing, with Nico taking home top prize for the men and winning the out of town alleycat, Fred Marshall taking home third place for the men and Allan Shaw landing the coveted most professional award.

For those not familiar, the North American Cycle Courier Championships (NACCC), bring together couriers from all over the continent and beyond. Riders from Australia, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada, Japan, etc showed up to enjoy the cameraderie and fellowship of their fellow messengers, talk about issues concerning the industry, and of course to compete in a work simulation to crown the best couriers on the continent. The main race is of course about the speed of your legs, but it also takes equal parts strategy, memorization, and organization to do well. Riders compete to complete the most pick-ups and deliveries in the time allotted with more difficult runs earning more money. The courier who is the biggest earner is crowned the champ!

We were stoked to have the wonderful Kevin Sparrow on hand to shoot photos of what went down, and are super psyched to share his stunning work with you.
