We were lucky enough to catch the “For the Love of Mud” premiere in Austin, Texas this past weekend during USA Cycling Cyclo-cross Nationals week and it was well worth it. We had the added privilege to sit through the show with the man who wrote, shot and edited the film over a one and a half year period, Mr. Benedict Campbell. To hear comments and back-story from the man himself before and after the showing was an extra bonus. It’s definitely a film that connects with beginners and professionals alike – even if you’ve never done a cx race, the imagery and history of the sport is fascinating. Everyone can identify with what is becoming the fastest growing cycling sport in the US.
Definitely a future cycling cult classic film!

Woke up with a bit of a shock today hearing about the loss of Steve Hed. At one point or another throughout the DeBoom brother’s racing career we were both sponsored by Hed Cycling. What a warm and brilliant guy – and always welcoming. Truly one of the good guys. You’ll be missed Steve, and our hearts go out to the Hed Family and the Hed Cycling organization. Rest in Peace Steve.
2014 is Endurance Conspiracy’s 5th year of involvement with the Kona Surf Film Festival. Over that time we’ve met and worked with an amazing group of people and organizations to include: Kona Boys, Kona Brewing Co., Hurley, Tomboy Bombshell, Altres and more. Most importantly, we’ve gotten tight with KSFF founder, surf renaissance man and EC Surf Ambassador, Chad Campbell.
The festival runs on Jan. 30th and 31st, 2015 on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Kona Surf Film Festival showcases independent short and feature films from established and emerging surf filmmakers from around the globe. Here’s art from the past 5 years – if you’re ever in the neighborhood, the festival is well worth a long weekend on the island.
Join Endurance Conspiracy at the 25th Annual Veloswap Bike Show this weekend at the National Western Complex in Denver Colorado.
First 100 visitors to the EC Booth will receive a free limited edition Veloswap Poster created by EC’s own Tony DeBoom. Additionally, EC will have some special, limited edition tees no longer available online, our new EC x Giordana cycling kits and the latest EC tees released just this Fall.
The innaugural Kona Beer Mile took place this year and EC was well represented by our very own Nick Vandam. Thanks to the Real Starky, Slowtwitch.com, Tim Carlson, and all those involved. And for those who shake their head, just remember that the Kona Underpants run still looks rediculous after all these years – everything starts somewhere.
No professional triathletes were injured during the filming of the video.
