A little bit of good, old fashioned fun was had in the West Bottoms with the Hot Cross Bottoms race. Conditions were perfectly my style; Great temps with mud, ice, snow, slush, stairs, loading docks, moving cars, drops, snowbanks and of course; people eating shit around every turn.
We all lined up after partaking in some PBR, Peeps and some even dared to drink the fruity toxin. We were off and rolling for 30+ minutes of intense danger. At least two riders had to change bikes mid race and then put the hammer down to keep up, even lap people. There was bonus points in the form of candy taped around every turn; bring back an empty wrapper and score extra points.
Here is an action shot of myself trying to catch Tylor after a 'turn around the tree' in the background (which many a poor soul ate-total-shit while attempting). I can't say that I podiumed, nor that I give a rats ass. I can say that it was hella-fun, and that is was good to be back in the saddle putting the peddle-to-the-metal.
