Now for something completely different...
We have a couple of local cyclocross races that have a bit of a different vibe. A little less serious and tons of fun! Mile High Urban CX and Cowboy CX teamed up this year for one race and it was at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. They happened to have a fat bike category, so we showed up (in costume) and had a blast!
There was actually only one barrier that we had to dismount the bike for each 1.9 mile lap.
The bike did get a bit muddy by the end as well as my front side and my stoker's back side. I'm not sure if the photos will convey how much fun and goofy this race was on a fat tandem, but it was pretty spectacular! I'm glad I convinced Mrs. ds2199 to join me on Sunday!
Warning - lots of photos to follow!
Pre-race, no mud yet
Of course we rode by a hot dog stand
They built some good sized dirt mounds inside the arena (think pump track but without good flow (even on a single bike)
This was the rock garden (with token Christmas trees) way easier to ride on the fat tandem than skinny cx tires later in the day
The clearance on this one wasn't too bad...
Yeah, we drug the chain through the dirt and may have nearly hung up on the boom tube on this one!
Coming out of the stock yards
I think we may have got a "yeee-haw" or too here
All done and a little muddy!
