Last night’s Keep Cross Weird race was a huge success. 50 racers registered and a great spectator crowd formed. There was a lot of mud, even more running and the fine folks at Yellow Jacket Social Club kept the drinks coming all night.
I’m still playing host to a group of people, so the site will be kinda quiet today. Oh and I didn’t even take a camera to the race with me. Which is very weird. Gideon did however, so check out his photos on the Beat the Clock Facebook!
If you shot photos, please email them to me!
These days, I can never decide if I want to race, or shoot photos at events like this. Last night’s Cycleast and Beat the Clock Cycling Urbocross looked so rad. Half singletrack and half bike path sprinting seemed like a 50/50 fun to pain ratio for me. I can eat up dirt just fine but I don’t have the fitness for long, paved straight aways. On a whim, after showing up in plain clothes, I entered the race and was doing fine sitting in second until I got a pinch flat. So it goes. At least I got to take a few more photos!
This set is weird. Half of it is of a local racer’s Black Cat SSCX and the other, pre, mid and post race photos. Either way, it’s a bit of radness everyone can enjoy. Check out more in the Gallery! Many thanks to Cycleast and Beat the Clock for putting on this event. See ya next week…
