Kicking off December: Off Season But Not Off the Mark

Here is a last ditch reminder about this weekend's Dirt Rag Punk Bike Enduro. I was wrong about the posters: they do exist and will be awarded to the riders with the highest blood alcohol content most Punk points at the end of the day.

If you happen to be anywhere near the western Pennyslvania part of the globe this weekend, then jump on it. This event reminds us that off road cyclists like to do weird things in the off season like drink beer and ride their bicycles in inclement weather. Roadies, on the other hand, are up for far more creative ways of spinning the two wheels. Johnny Hoogerland gives us an example. You will remember Hoogerland was made famous this year for getting knocked around and severely lacerated after he was hit by a car in the Tour de France, which, if you are unclear, is in fact, a bicycle race

(In the future we will be able to put videos in parentheses)

Well now the Dutch Hoogerland, aka the "Bull of Beveland," is getting even more famous for his off season antics because he recently competed in a horse racing harness race, as a cyclist.
Guess what? He won.

Harness racing with infield bicycle competitions is the next cyclocross.

Have a great weekend and welcome to December.
