Musical Chairs at the MFG Cross Awards

To win the grand prize at the MFG Cross Awards Party, it was a game of musical chairs.

Series winners with Terry and Zac announcing them

The 1st finishers in each category grabbed the chairs while the 2nd place finishers watched. Then they both got to go up to the schwag table.

The Hodala cheer was heard even in this game

Eye on the empty chair

It was the most competitive game of musical chairs I’ve seen (or remember from Kindergarten).

Henry Geary was on last chair and won a this Raleigh Cross bike.

Women Race Cross

There was a time, not so long ago, when wives and girlfriends at Cross races waited in the car or team tent, cold, bitter, and anxious to do something else. Now look at the women in these photos.


Nona Varnado wrote today on the Bird Wheel about how women didn’t get the memo that cycling is a man’s sport.


These women didn’t get that memo either and if they did, they ignored it.


Then worked on their skills over the barriers and hitting the run ups at full effort.

Nona argues that

In cities and towns all over North America (hello Canada!) women are making major waves in cycling – but it doesn’t look the same as what the boys have done. Women are making cycling an everyday, civic and style minded affair to integrate into the everyday as something that’s non-competitive and… fun.

Cycle Chic? Non-competitive and… fun? Sure in jeans, converse, a stylish helmet, and dropping the men in the Cat 4 field.

Showed up in plain clothes and dropped the men around her

When you talk women, cycling, and evangelize #girlbikegangs, include the women who ride to work and race on the weekends.

I’ll argue that those women are doing more for the cause than checking fashion blogs, to see if their shoes match their bike and in the right color of the season.

Team SLK Caps

Earlier this year, posted on Pelostache v. Cross Chops and featured a member of the Team SLK crew. Soft Like Kitten is a fav team of mine, for their kit, soft brand, and bromance-inducing good looks. AND! their motto is

… Anathema to the jock-tastic bro racers and their “HTFU”s. To be Soft Like Kitten is to “ruin the race for everyone.” To be Soft Like Kitten is to get out to a race and pedal your ass off without being too cool for school.

Cross Racing: Pelostache

@positronicshell just announced Retweet their caps are on sale.

Suggest you get yours and soften the fuck up.

A Cold Wet Race at Deschutes River CX

A few photos say everything about Deschutes River CX in Tumwater, Wa. Her face

Someone get her a towel and a blanket, quick

this single speed

Red chain

and mud bog

Best to ride into a bog like this with confidence

Plain Clothes Racing at Woodland Park

When I spotted Jeans and Converse on her mountain bike at MFG Cross Woodlawn Park, thought, “oh this is gonna be good.”

Got a iPhone photo

No number to get her name. That’s even more rebellious. Was she even registered or just showed up to kick ass?

then she worked the crowd each time on the stairs-to-log run up

The run up crowd loved her

and surprised everyone with a huge gap at the finish.

Putting the hurt on the men behind her too

Style Man raced in the same heat and don’t know if they called each other beforehand or even know each other, but their kits were plain clothes.
