    Racing in costume

    I love racing both geared and SS. But there is something about single speeding that makes me what to ham it up.

    Last time I dressed up I tried to wheelie across a mud pit and I face planted



    Homegrown Cross

    I registered for the big sandy race geared but I'm thinking changing to SS and dressing up.

    Any one else want to join in the fun? Or do you at least enjoy racing in costume once in a while.

    That's kind of silly, but whatever does it for you.

    I haven't but I think it's great. There's too many people (non-professionals) taking themselves way too seriously as it is. I'm all for a costume providing some laughs.

    agree, I love the baggy pants and shirt so common in the bmx crowd. Feel way more comfortable than Lycra and adherent jerseys; so why not a costume?

    Racing in costume should probably be a sticky in the SS forum...

    I just rock the baggies and cotton T, but its probably funnier to blow by someone while wearing a thong and superman cape.

    I'm always in costume when I race SS -- I dress as a bike racer.
