Open Winner Ben Lazerquest coming in hot

Hey there sports fans, just wanted to once more say thank you to all of the sponsors, racers, and volunteers who made it such an amazing bike party weekend. It was one of the most fun All City Champs in years, and I hope to see you all next year. If you weren’t able to make it to this one, do think about checking us out, MPLS in the summertime is simply the best!

The alleycat was a long one with 40 miles to cover and hitting all of the highest points in each sector of the city. We also threw in the longest Crosstown Hustle to date, the Hustle is a sealed manifest kamikaze run across the length of the city, and the incessant rain made things very spicy.

Took an emergency trip to the Upper Peninsula this weekend. I’ll be back shortly. And I know I’ve been slacking on the BMX Video Monday posts and I’m super sorry.
