Chapter Thirty Six- Badger Cross Wisconsin CycloCross State Championships

CX28

Because life is crazy and one of the twins just got sick, this week’s post will be told mostly in photos.  I went to see the CycloCross State Championships.  Check it out.  It’s badass biking in often extreme temperatures.  This event was host to some well below zero weather.  I learned all about the ranking and history of the sport.  It’s a fun and laid back sport for some, and very competitive for others.  It’s not uncommon to see costumes and beer among athletes and spectators alike.  Obstacles like sandpits, hills, and small fences are in abundance.

Some serious awards!

The honor system in effect, yo.

This is a cool book by a cool guy who called me a photographer.  I didn’t correct him.  Do you know about the Bike Fed?  You should.

They have a junior’s division, too!  Cool to see young kids having fun and competing.

CX31 CX33

So THAT’S what those pockets are for.

Alright folks, that’s all I have.  There’s so much more interesting information about this sport, like how athletes are ranked and how the races are timed.  But like I just said to Little A a few minutes ago, that’s the best I can do.

Peace!
