Post 4 – East Orlando Alleycat

For being put together last minute, the event was a big success. After everyone racing threw down 5$, we ended up with $131 (someone only had $1 on them, it’s all good). $30 of this went to bee– I mean supplies for the race. We had 3 categories that took $30 each: 1st place overall, 1st non road bike, and 1st woman. We also awarded the leftover $11 to D.F.L.

  1. Sweet fucking race! Oh, and fuck the mountain bikers and their sweet shortcuts through the woods!

  2. Also, holly fucking shit on your rim!

  3. when people tie, you usually skip the following number in the ranks. Example, two tie for fourth, there is no fifth, next is sixth, but it doesn’t really make a difference.

    It was a great race. Next time you better ride.

  4. very true, phil. I used the automatic numbering which prevents me from skipping numbers as far as I could tell. meh

    I’ll be riding next race, if only to beat you.

  5. I’m so glad that Jared/Flava Flave could make it to the race! thank you so much everybody for coming out and racing. I hope everyone had a blastoff. Is it P.C. for a fixie rider to fall in love with a mountain biker?

  6. Oh Jen…

  7. P.C.?

    No it’s not ok Jen, stick to your roots
