Track or Treat 8 Official Flyer

by Jeff on October 14, 2014

TrackOrTreat2014

The eighth edition of Track or Treat is coming at you Halloween night in Minneapolis.

Brought to you by Bike Jerks, Knog, Hammerbone, Trash Bags, Velocity, All-City, Sunrise Cyclery, and Banjo Brothers.

Show up at 10pm at Sunrise, bring a fixed gear bike (brakes are ok), and make sure you wear a costume. There will be a huge time bonus for costumes, so if you’re in it to win it, you better dress the part. If all you’ve got is some cat ears, or face paint or some other bullshit, don’t even try it. If you want the time bonus, you’ll need to make a little effort.

The best prize will be going to the winner of the costume contest hosted by Andy from Trash Bags. Halloween is his birthday, so don’t give him any guff.

Entry for the race is $3 cash and a six pack of the beverage of your choice.  The $3 is for racers only, but everyone attending the party must bring a beverage to share.

Huge thanks to Jamie from Sunrise for hosting and to Saisha for absolutely killing the flyer.  See you there.

Lucky number 666. Crashed twice first half lap, still finished 7th in my first race as a 3. Totally ok with that.

Bandit Cross Sprints Tuesday 8/14

by Jeff on October 10, 2014

IMG_6681You’ll have to forgive me that I haven’t had time to make a snappy flyer since deciding to make this finally happen. I’ve been talking about wanting to do head to head cross match sprints for a few years now, but just wasn’t able to find the right venue. Now, that’s all changed as I expect the Deer Pens area of Minnehaha Falls to be just about perfect.

Tuesday October 14th
Minnehaha Falls – Deer Pens
Head to Head Match Sprints
Men’s and Women’s divisions

Afterparty at Sunrise Inn

The format will be a two up sprint race starting off the bike, then a ten foot run, mount, 30 yard sprint, double barriers, 30 yard sprint.

If you plan on drinking, also please plan on concealing. If anybody can trailer down some wood, that would be awesome.

See you there.

Kelly MacWilliams Shoots the Dog Park Bandit Cross

by Jeff on October 9, 2014

Never got around to putting these on the blog as they were reserved for an Urban Velo article written by Stevil. That articles has now been published and with the race coming up this weekend, seems like the time is right to take a look at Kelly’s awesome photography of the 2012 race at the Dog Park.

It was a muddy nasty day with snow still on the ground for my 10 o’clock race. The course got cleaner and faster as the day went on the sun periodically made appearances.
