ccc'09...

the cuttin'crew classic was this weekend. it was a 3 day event. it started off on friday with a short(ish) alley-cat. my wife and i worked a check point over at 510 west erie...



check more sloppy pics from my flickr...

we decided to make them bike or run around the tree on top of the mini-hill. i believe andrew nordyke took top honors on the night. congrats to him for making it happen. the main event came on saturday...unfortunately, i couldn't get around to many locations and with such a huge race and checkpoints all over town my strategy was to hit up a couple spots and see what we can...here's the manifest so you get an idea of what we were working with...

we made our way to the cargo portion of the race over by uic and just.max was able to get some good shots for all of us to enjoy...




check out just.max pics here...

the plan was to get a couple shots but watching everyone try to grab as much as they could was too much fun. that and drew was feeding us free beers...thanks. we only saw two people haul everthing...good job. the bucket was filled with cement and water...wtf?! then we made our way over to piece to see if rene was still around for the poker race portion of the manifest but had no luck finding parking...yes, we did drive...ha! sorry rene...i owe you a brew. we decided to head over on richmond to see the obstacle course that kyle had set up but the gates were closed. luckily he took some pics...


check out kyle's flickr set here...

we called it a day and headed home. the messenger prom was later that evening. i can only imagine the madness that went down. i couldn't make it but im sure pics will pop up sooner or later and the details of the winners of the ccc'09 will be revealed along with this years prom king and queen. today, sunday, was a team of 3 time trial. i'm sure that was equally amazing. again, i apologize for not being able to come out to everything but what i did manage to get to was pretty amazing. sh*t...there was even a crew from paris, france at the race. ccc is international...ha! good job to all the organizers and racers. im sure more good times will be had in the time to come...peace.
