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 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.

Crash Nationals Part Two - Sunday’s Dramatic Turn of Events

I'm sure you've seen the jokes and internet punditry associated with last Sunday mornings abrupt cancellation and subsequent postponement of racing. If you haven't, let me give you a brief recap. Sunday is THE BIG DAY. The day that the Elites (read pros) and juniors take to the turf to decide who is the best of the best in the good ol' United States. This is the day the entire week of racing has been building toward, and the day where all the pro teams, moms and dads, and sponsors get their big payoff.

On Thursday of the National Cyclocross Championship in Austin, All-City sponsored Beat the Clock Cycling and the Radavist's bandit cross event, Crash Nationals. This was your regularly scheduled Bandit Cross, not to be confused with Sunday's Crash Nationals race which was put together at the eleventh hour in order to salvage a historic and potentially shitty day (which turned out awesome BTW). More on Sunday's race in the next blog post, so today we'll just soak in the stoke from what was an absolutely excellent night race.
