Being stuck at work when Cross Nats is going on next door is like having a white head that won’t pop. You’re so close to fun, yet something stands in the way of you from blasting out of there like a bat outta’ hell. Well, the weekend finally came. The beer flowed, the cupcakes were dominated, and the mud stayed muddy. It was cyclocross at its finest.
We met these three guys Friday night keeping the spirit alive at the Machinery Row Party.
Saturday morning hit and it was up early for Cupcake and his baking sidekick.
Being a spectator at a cross race is more fun than actually racing the damn thing. Here’s proof.
Of course we need booze, the necessary pitstop to the friendly folk at Verona Wine Cellar.
Saturday was a nice, being family friendly and everything, but Sunday cross racing is a whole different animal. Trash talk, cupcake hurls, Grape Nut sabotage, yea this day had it all, and there was no better place to be than the Erickson run-up. By the end of the day, the soldiers out there were like family. Feeding each other beer soaked cupcakes and washing ’em down with a bottle of Korbel from our friend Dave. Hell yea Dave. More proof…
There were so many highlights this weekend. My voice is hoarse, my ass hurts, and my cupcakes are gone. Now, time for the award for This Weekend’s Drunkest Cyclist.
Chris Ramsey, a Tucson OG flying in Athlete Octane threads took down the better portion of a tallboy on his next lap, while riding up a hill. Congratulations Chris and keep up the good work. See you next year!
Special thanks to Babi Cakes for the stellar photos.by

Liked the article. More research has proved that eating frequently does not really improve your metabolism and hence fat burning. It’s on pubmed and worth checking out. Thanks
