… it brings out the creative nature in folks. Give a sacramentan a little bit of real estate, and they will figure out how to funk that spot.
Guess which one of these 5mm spacers can provide you correct bike fit and open a bottle of beer? Weighing in at only 16 grams, the Ahrens Wisecracker is the perfect addition to any and or all of your bikes. Team BEER has joined up with Ahrens to bring you the Wisecrakcer with the team logo in case you forget what this thing is for.
Ok, so you don’t drink beer. Pffff! Whatever. Well it might just come in handy when you are hanging out at your local Taqueria and they forgot to open your bottle of Coca Cola or Jarritos. Or, it could make a great gift for a friend of yours.
Whatever the case might be, get one of these before they are gone.
Sage’s face says it all. Sierra Point, after dark, is brutal. I think everyone had a similar race. Similar in the sense that once started, the first few laps felt ok, and then it was a game of going backwards.
While the course was not particularly difficult, it was short and bumpy. So the key to the bumps was to maintain speed and try to skip along. Maintaining speed takes juice, and on such a short course, it limits your ability to recover. At that point it becomes a disguised power game. Also the short laps mean numerous times around the course.
The main highlight was the novelty of racing under the lights. The lighting system consisted of 10 roadwork flood lamps. There were a few dark areas, but the course was not sketchy.
Racing at night is very unique experience. The crowds are crazy, maybe due to the full moon, maybe the beer, maybe the combination, and full of energy. The extra energy from the crowd is a real motivator. Racing at night also requires greater timing, and a schedule to follow. It’s too easy to get caught up in everything going on and forget about little things like dinner or hydration. It’s an experience that I will keep in my back pocket for the future. Maybe Star Crossed will be on the calendar for 2009.
