While the rest of the MN metro area was hunkering down with cheese dip and cheap beer, prepping for the 'storm of the season', we were among the 50-some hardcore, bike lovin, riders celebrating the ice and snow we've gotten. Wheels, Crossmax, KK, Hurl, Brower Power, and the lovely Kelly Mac were all there in good form, among others.
At High noon, we started up the Cold Hard Dash for cash - $20.07 frozen in a curling-disc-sized puck of ice. Hwood got the hole shot (of course), but lost after the U on land to a Pugsley. I was exstatic not to be DFL....and not to have fallen through the creaking ice.
Next began the Snowball crit heats (click for my video). The figure eight was fast and hilarious! Riders were droppin like drunken frat boys as they slip, slided across the ice. In the end, it was the fabulous Matt Moore that took 1st, sharing the podeum with Hwood in 2nd, and Wheels in 3rd.
