Our friends over at Hub Event Productions put on a little race last weekend here in Tempe, AZ called the Cruiserman. Technically, it was a triathlon, but it is one like you have never seen. Do the swim with any floatation device you want, ride a beach cruiser a few miles, run a little bit, then drink a free beer from San Tan Brewery. Seemed like something we should be a part of, minus the whole swimming thing. I got on the horn to our resident crash test dummy/guinea pig, Scandinavian Jesus, to see if he wanted to roll it with a DC jersey on. If you remember, he is a bit of a sucker for peer pressure. He was in. We got him registered for the duathlon, cause drunkcyclists don’t tri.
He cruised the bike, took my hand-up, and set off on the run:
And that sonofabitch won the damn thing. This is what winning looks like:
But everybody seemed to have a smile on their face…kinda like this one:
Hub did an awesome job of putting on this first ever event. There was a smile on the face of every single person who came across the finish line. That tells me it was a job well done. SJ’s quote later that evening was “Cruiserman, more like Boozerman…I got pretty drunk out there today”. A job well done indeed.
There is even some talk of a joint event with DC and Hub in the not so distant future…stay tunedby
