Cross Racing Week 9 | Scuttled

What do you get when you combine a gaggle of aging bike racers, copious amounts of beer, darkness and cruiser bikes? Chaos. The Tour de Dewey was brought back in style for a certain Dubba’s 40th birthday. It was of course a full moon and the date was special to say the least…


There were costumes…


Supporters of all kinds…


Dirk was on hand…


Cruiser bikes…


And of course pro-level bike racing…


Even Hunter S. Thompson made it!


All of this debauchery yielded some amazing spectacles including…


Yeah, did I mention the chaos part? A bit of a head on collision creating some crumpled bike parts, stitches and hematomas. As I type this I'm on the mend as is my bud who collided with me and thus will now be part of TdD legend. I’m, uh, ‘glad’ I could contribute to the TdD in some small way.

Needless to say my bike racing on Sunday was a complete waste. I attempted to race the Sienna Lake course…a SUPER fun track designed by my teammate Pete Webber for the Cyclo-X race put on by the Without Limits crew. I knew deep down trying to push hard on the pedals in warm up that I should just ‘donate’ my $30 entry fee and call it a day, but alas gave it a try. My main Dale captured my brief showing for a lap before I pulled out…something I truly can not stand doing but it had to be done.

More bike racing to come so time to slap my face Lars Boom style and come around for the 2nd half of the season.
