The Do Racing Apres Race & Lifestyle Collection is here at last. Buy It Now! Help fund the Do Racing Grant!

Welcome to downtown Pain City. Crit Racing is dope and so are you! Venga Venga Venga! Do Racing! We made this tight-but-sick collection of flair so we could represent, and you could represent, and now, finally, Crit Racing is culturally relevant, which feels just great. Plus the colors. 

But wait, all these style upgrades and good vibes isn’t even the best part!

With help and support from our sponsors, Manual For Speed created the Do Racing Grant to support a BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA2S+ amateur crit racing team’s 2022 campaign! We’re donating 100% of profits from this collection—up to $3000—to funding the cash portion of the grant.

Take me shopping so I can look good while supporting amateur racing and diversity in my favorite sport!

Tell me more about this grant, please!

DO RACING COLLECTION

We’re donating 100% of profits from this collection—up to $3000—to funding the cash portion of the DO RACING grant.

At its core, this project is about how Crit Racing is inherently more accessible and diverse (and, tbh, rad) than most cycling disciplines, but but but but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t and shouldn’t be even more accessible and diverse. Which is why Manual For Speed, with help from our sponsors—Cycling Tips, Cannondale, Sportful and Smith Optics— has created a grant specifically designed to support a Cat 3/4/5 BIPOC/LGBTQIA2S+ crit racing team.

What we’re doing right now:

We’re building an enjoyable, educational and interactive online grant application that will launch December 15th and stay open until January 15th. If you’re thinking of entering, please start working on that team deck!

We’re enlisting a panel of three experts from the BIPOC/LGBTQIA2S+ community, who have experience building, running and maintaining a cycling team, to review the applicants and to make the final decision.

The Do Racing Grant will be awarded to one team based on a subjective-but-thoughtful-and-careful review of each team’s trajectory, goals, planning, needs, etc. 

Grant Details: What’s in it?

  1. Feedback and mentorship from the Do Racing Panel.
  2. $3000.00 cash.
  3. 5 Cannondale CAAD 13 frames.
  4. $3500.00 kit budget from Sportful.
  5. 10 helmets and 10 pairs of sunglasses from Smith Optics.
  6. 1 Manual For Speed X Venga Venga Venga Visual Showcase photoshoot.
WE LOVE CRIT RACING
because it’s rowdy and raw, and it’s fast and it’s furious, and it’s categorically American and all of that. But maybe more importantly, we love it because in many ways, it’s as diverse and fresh and vibrant as cycling gets. And we wanna highlight that. We wanna nurture that. We wanna cultivate that. And we wanna sincerely and vigorously celebrate that. Bottom line: we believe Crit Racing is about as cool as our sport gets, and we love thinking about crit racing as a “cool sport.” Compelling, inviting, aspirational, accessible and fun. And yesssss, sometimes it’s also straight-up competitive. Everyone is invited. Let's do racing together
