Koochella Team Roller Training Photos

So I am on this race team with some of the coolest chicks around.

“How is that possible, Anna, when you’re such a lame nerd?” you’re undoubtedly asking yourself. 

I know!  I have no idea!

Koochella is a team of ladies from around the city of Minneapolis.  They race alley cats, some are messengers, they do cool stuff for the bike community of the city (run races, fundraisers, events, etc.), and are solid riders who love to ride.

They came up to the velodrome last season, many without ever seeing one in person, and hopped on without hesitation.  Freaking fearless.  And, because everyone has a healthy respect for one another, we’re all terrified of each other for next season.  Hooray!

So France Barbeaux, the extremely talented Official Unofficial Team Photographer, took some sweet shots of one of the roller training sessions we had at Sunrise last week.  Enjoy:

"What's up with that girl in the helmet?" you're wondering to yourself.  

That's Steph.  

Remember that sweet picture in the last post of the chick with the bloody face?  That's from when Steph crashed this:

It was a good thing she was wearing it, too, because her session that night ended with this:

Stupor Bowl 20 Photos

Early this February the 20th edition of Minneapolis' legendary Stupor Bowl was held. This is the second longest running messenger race in the world and is famously comprised of two classes: Speed and Stupor. The speed race is your typical alleycat affair with a manifest of stops all over our fair city, and the Stupor race adds the twist of requiring racers to pound a beverage at every stop.
