Today Was the Texas State Cyclocross Championships Jan 5, 2014


I am in no shape for racing. Well, that’s not completely true. It’s actually my cross bike that is out of shape. Bent rings, stretched cables, broken levers. My poor Geekhouse is in major need of some TLC. So when the Texas State Cyclocross Championships popped up this weekend, I decided to take the Pugsley out for some fun.

The short of it is: yes, that bike is heavy but it ate the sand pits alive, cornered exceptionally well, tackled all of the technical sections and as this photo shows, made barriers disappear. Then the head winds on the straight aways ate all speed… and the beer handups. Then the weed handups. Anyway, I had fun and it was a perfect way to end the season.

More to come, I just had so much fun riding this bike today that I wanted to share a photo!

    Every fat bike post continually pushes my want to hop on the band wagon.

  • Brett Rothmeyer

    Hehe, Weed handups.

  • Ace Metric Cycles

    Look so fun! Surly did a really nice job on the special ops.

    I have to know where to get/who to contact about that Sexy Unicorn stencil.

  • Ande Murdoch

    I wouldn’t have bothered hopping, just ridden straight through the barriers.

    • Where’s the fun (or skill) in that? ;-)

        Maybe not skill but fun!
