CrossCrusade Race #3: Rainier High School

I win again!

This much longer, but technically less difficult, course was too much fun. Despite being almost twice as long as last week’s race, I still managed to not get lapped by the bikers — meaning that I ran the loop at least half as fast as the fastest biker.

Present at this race was the recently assembled Surly Conundrum unicycle; an extra wide frame providing room for the 4″ Large Marge tire. With it’s giant footprint and super low pressure, stunts like those seen below were inevitable. I’m the unfortunate one in red who took the brunt of this failed attempt (photo by Shawn McBride).

There are some very capable photographers on site for these races so instead of including my mediocre shots, here are some links. Definitely click on them:
