SORRY // the Canadians go to SSCXWCXPDX

sscx-10
Just before being late to qualifiers. @curbwzrd @darknorth @_meat_ fell out of the internet.

It’s been over a month since we donned our Canadian Tuxedos and stepped into the homeland of Freedom (eagle screech), PBR and PEOTUS to visit the host city that birthed the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships 10 years ago. As CX season comes to a wrap across the globe, we thought we would take a look back, and see if there is anything we can remember.

Our contingent of northerners was anything but motley – with representatives in the form of Vancouver Island’s StuckyLife, the Mainland’s VCXC, VANSS, ReignInMud, Mighty/OnTheRivet and general ne’er do wells from the Brodie #bTeam permeating the bunch, the ambassadors from America’s Hat were well represented.

With us was our excellent friend (we have the best friends) Warren Fenton, documenting the debacle and spearheading Pizza Acquirement and Boosting Updates.

The event is best described as a party with a bike race in it. But before that bike race you have to get into that bike race. And after that bike race, if you didn’t get into the bike race, there are other bike races for you to attempt. Between qualifiers, dual slalom racing, the Loser race and the main events, there was no shortness of event. Also, the $1 beers helped idle away your time/sobriety.

There are others who have used more words to explain the course of events, however, it might be disingenuous to pretend I actually know what happened most of the time. Let us review photo evidence from conscientious participator, Mr. Fenton, and see what our minds eye reveals.

When was the last time you organized a race from a sound-system-canoe in a field on a farm?

Thanks for another amazing year SSCXWC, and huge props to people that organize events like this.

Cheers,

meat

PS. Oh yea, Sven Nys came, but he didn’t win, so whatever.
