Bandit Cross 9 Photos

Here are a few selected images from this past weekend's Bandit Cross race down by Fort Snelling State Park.  About 20 people showed, 9 raced, and except for one pissy pants bystander who was kicking all of the cones into the woods, the whole thing went off quite well with minimal notice from the patrons of the dog park.

There was a strong showing by the Hub team, and our guy Andrew Pierre won.

I was cruising around on a gold Macho Man prototype

I threw my beer, cones, clipboard, course tape, and all the other stuff I carry around in my Captain Phil.  No trailer needed for this one.

The ‘Bandit Cross race’ is looking so exciting! Seems the area is too critical to cross to the participants but they are looking strong enough. Good luck for them and I’m waiting for the next update of the event.

What we ride:  Nick’s Space Horse

I hesitated posting pictures of my personal Space Horse build as it felt a little “braggy” to me but I really want to give you all a glimpse into where my brain is at. Buckle up and hold on. So truth be told I was never a big fan of the Space Horse. My only experience being the annual SaddleDrive industry event where I’d grab one and take it for a quick lap around the lower parking lot and back up the hill. The bikes are set up “to fit everyone” so the Space Horse always felt way too tall and uninspiring. Meh. In August of last year my opinion drastically changed.

The Adventure Trend…

Let me tell you what I'm stoked on... This whole adventure / exploration thing that has absolutely exploded in the last few years. Now I'm sure you didn't just spit out your coffee in amazement (Oh really? No way!) that 'Ol Jeffy is excited about the trend that everyone in the industry is excited about right now and using to hawk their product. And I realize that bike industry trends are often viewed with suspicion, as in "They're just trying to sell me something new."
