Someone Got Drunk and Put On a Cross Race

Back when I was a young lad, I worked briefly at Cheshire Cycles in Cheshire, CT. It was a cool shop in the middle of upper middle class suburbia I longed to escape. It was a refuge for ol’ D2 during those days, so when those boys (and DC supporter Gary H.) got in touch and told me they were putting on a right proper Cross race and needed some DC support, I said of course.

I think I made a good decision supporting these chaps.

In lieu of course markers, they hired this dude to point and yell.

The ladies were well represented. #realgirlsthatride were on hand to kick some ass.

There was apparently a hostile hipster takeover. We can only hope they were vanquished by beards.

Booty-ups. It’s like a hand-up, but with ass.

The key to a successful race is hydration. This gentleman demonstrates proper hydrating technique. You’ll notice he is multi-tasking by continuing his forward momentum. The bearded gentleman in the background recognizes fine hydration technique and exclaims, ‘jolly good.’

On the beer-less end of the course, people seem to be suffering more. One can only hope hydration came soon. This man looks at the end of his rope.

Stick it out, good sir. There must be beer somewhere nearby.

Great success! This cyclist narrowly avoids the greedy hands of beer usurpers. His technique seems to be finely tuned, however, and I can only assume this tasty beverage was gulleted right quickly.

  2. Thanks for the props but not all the photos are mine. 1,3,5 and 6 certainly are and I thought the booty-up was good until I watched Matthew crush that beer while shouldering up a hill and maintaining a firm grasp on his dollar-up…and that was not his first lap, or beer!

  3. My wife was checking out the pics over my shoulder (on Jamison’s Flik’r-I had to find more cleavage) and I lamented that I only found one cleavage shot and the other ladies were holding out. She then said, “What are we just objects for you men to stare at?” I just looked at her and stared….but puzzled by her question.
