providence festival of cyclocross

The 2013 Providence Cyclocross Festival. Hanging with the SSCXWC guys in their Philly Hand Up Zone. This being New England, the beer hand ups were shut down but they graciously shared after the race. One of them was wearing the trench coat with fake arms holding the boom box but of course the officials asked him to remove it on the start line. Nice to line up with all the cool mustachioed/tattooed guys and gals you see in all the cycling ads and websites. Some heavy hitters were there who took the racing much more seriously than the rest of us. After decades on the ultra serious New England road scene its nice to ride just for fun in the madness that is single speed cyclocross.
