Stupor Bowl 21

This year’s running of the Stupor Bowl promised weirdness with 1700 extra law enforcement agents in town due to the Super Bowl, but mercifully it was pretty much business as usual minus the exceptional conditions. For only the second time in my memory, it snowed! The side streets were absolute shit, and the main streets were also shit. Just the way we like it.

I myself wasn’t able to race due to some medical problems (chest pain when breathing deeply, I’m going to make a doctor appointment, don’t worry), which was pretty heartbreaking. The air was magic, and getting loose in sloppy conditions is a personal favorite of mine. But so it goes…

The manifest was completely out of hand, with the winners doing 50 miles and no one making the time cutoff, which ended up being extended. The results are still coming in. But here’s what I know: Men’s: Dominican Crihs won Stupor, Christian won Speed, Colin was second, Mitchell was third WTF: Risa won speed, Tiana won Stupor.

Hopefully these images help paint the picture.
