Treasure and I are off to Saddle Drive, a QBP dealer event, then are heading out to Wyoming for another crack at Middle Teton. This is a pretty big deal for us as we’ve got a bit of unfinished business out there. It’ll be an emotional climb, far too long in the making.

If you’re curious as to what happened last time we attempted, go here.

Be back on the 28th.

Hope you have a great week. Wish us luck and safety.

2014 All City Championship Alleycat Photos & Results

The smoke has started to settle and the hangovers are just beginning to subside. As always, it was a hell of a weekend. We had a record turnout for Bandit Cross (70 racers), the men’s crit was awesome but unfortunately due to some ugliness the women’s crit had to be moved (planning a makeup date ladies, so don’t fret, you’ll get another shot at the awesome downtown course), and despite the rain 125 riders showed up for the alley cat.

Huge thanks to Karyn for coordinating the volunteers, Saisha for killing the race materials, Geno for hosting us, all the volunteers who make it possible, and of course the racers who rode a tough course and did so safely.

Here are the results and some favorite photos
