We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.

Commuter Challenge Cross Edition


A commuter arrived at these stairs when I did. He was riding home and I was in the middle of a cross workout. He rode up the road and I ran the stairs with a cross bike on my shoulder. Without saying anything to each other, it turned into a race. It was “on.”

I beat him to the top by a second or so. I was breathing heavy, gasping, and his face was on fire red. As we passed each other, I said, “next Wednesday, same time, Bro.” Round two.

That edition of the Commuter Challenge was not much harder than the one in London. Every ride is a race there.

Update with Video

Don’t know if Old Trek & Safety Vest read this post yesterday or what, but he passes me on the sidewalk spinning like mad. Then cuts me off at the top of the climb. He won that race I didn’t know I was in.

St. Raphael of Mud

St. Raphael of Mud

Mentioned the rains were coming earlier this week and they did for a day. The trails and parks are muddy. I get as technical as any gear head on the road bike during a wet winter. For early Autumn weather, though, it’s classic Merino wool jerseys.

Space Needle Around the Corner


Where I train in West Seattle, the Space Needle is always just around the corner. It’s in the triangle of the frame, middle left and this bike is the Parlee CX H (for Hugga) that I’ve got in on test. It’s a custom carbon cross bike that weighs 15 pounds and I’m racing it like I was a Belgian with dangling gold chains. Much more to it than that, but that’s a good start.

Joey’s OK! Tees


Thanks for you interested and pre-orders, but we decided to not run the Ts. Joey’s still ok, though!


Spent the afternoon with these two American Apparel models. The dude hadn’t ridden a bike in years and she refused to put pants on, but the tee artwork, survey, photoshoot (uhm ‘shopped), is done. The tees are ready for pre-orders today.

Pre-Order a Joey’s OK! Tee

The tees are American Apparel, Organic cotton in Natural with Kelly green stitching and a 2-color screen print of the artwork. They cost $28.00 + $5.00 for shipping. They tees are made in LA and screened right here in Seattle. They’ll ship in about 2 weeks, after the orders come in, with a free barrier sticker based on the artwork.

Joey’s OK! Art

The artwork was hand-drawn and designed by Scott Benish. It’s based on Jaxon Suttlemyre’s photo. In collaboration with Cyclocoss Magazine, we’re giving the art away.

Maybe there’s a Joey’s NOT OK! Halloween character that wrecks havoc in a race? Who knows and whatever you want to do, have fun with it. It’s been fun for us and Joey. The video is playing on Dutch talk shows now.

Also, Joey’s gonna get paid for the Tees and will save his royalties for a new road bike or a waterbed.

Again with the Video

Joey’s Package

Joey's OK! Tee Artwork

Tee artwork by Scott Benish and in collaboration with Cyclocross Magazine

Hey we’re working on Joey’s Package: a Tee (shown above), Sticker, and Downloadable Artwork and have a few questions for you. The total cost of the package is $28.00 and before we fire off the printer and fill our warehouse with Joey scwhag, we want to know what you want.

We’ll print that artwork on an organic American Apparel tee in natural with kelly green stitching. The sticker is sized to slap onto the barriers at your next Cross race and the artwork is free.

And we heard this last night Retweet

joeysok made it on Keith olbermann on current tv tonight

I knew when Joey flew over my head that was spectacular, but not so much that it’d blow up like this. That’s me coming to his aid in the video. I did whisper in his ear, while he writhed around in Pain, dude! But didn’t say, “ignore the pain, INTERNET FAME!”


Thanks for answering the questions, even you jokesters, and the tees are available to order now.
