Rapture Cancelled...

Major Bummer on all fronts! This was THE race I had been looking forward to all season long; R.I.M. 6/12 hour kick-in-the-balls endurance race at Crowder. You have to admit; being in the saddle on hard single track for 12 hours at a race pace is true man-style and what it's all about. How long can you suffer and can you actually do it?
I had skipped the SAC River 3/6 in order to juggle my schedule to do R.I.M.. I had done the same for Burning at the Bluff. It was all in for R.I.M.. and now I just have to sit here and cry about what a killer race we are all going to miss, and for what? Is it because far too many of you wimp-ass-chumps complained about no local races in years past only to be a NO SHOW at most of this year’s events? Was it all of the ultra-gay CX jerks who started the season early this year, like they can’t ride at the park anytime of year? Why the F#&K would you rather ride in circles on grass between two pieces of tape for an hour when you could be riding dirt surrounded by nothing but nature for 12? I'm not pissed at the promoters, they are stand up guys. I am friggin’ pissed as a pit-bull in a cage-fight when I say that IF this race was cancelled due to CX season OR because of you no-show mo-fo's, I'm gonna cut your toes off one by one, then hang you off the plank with those nubs dangling in saltwater, till your day ends deep in Davey Jones Locker as shark food.
I suppose my anti-cx race idea may in fact have to come to fruition this winter...if you dicks can handle what the ol' Pirate has brewing when XC meets CX on the battlefield. Something a little more brutal and more dirt than this kick-a$$ video demonstrates...
And to further rag on about random B.S. in the works, or not...I will have to do a few of those CX races this season in true Pirate form to make some things happen on the black market side of things. Watch out you circle-jerks, Here comes one pissed off Irishman with full body hair ready to get dirty...back alley style.
See you out there.

It's not CX racers fault. It was the perfect storm of cross season starting (a week later than last year), harvest season, and RIM being pushed back a month to accomodate the XC fools who are scared to sweat.

I too was planning on racing RIM. Like I have done the past 10 years. Hell, I think I am the only person to race in all past RIM's - Weston, Landahl and Crowder. Many great rides and memories for sure. Now I have a free entry the I can not use :-(

If it makes you feel any better, we are well underway with the planning for our 2012 events. Make sure you save the date 4/15/2012 - 4th Annual Bone Bender 3/6 Hour MTB Odyssey.
