junkyard cross

I went down to Philly for the annual Bilenky junkyard cross race this weekend. I didn't have a camera with me, so I'm just poaching video from I appear briefly at 3.01 in the first video, getting off my bike and passing four people. Somehow I was the only one without a helmet... It wasn't much of a "race" in the traditional sense (as its location would attest), and I was sitting around drinking beer when my race actually started with my bike on the other side of the junkyard, so needless to say, I did not do so well. At least I had the pleasure of passing people the entire race—that always feels good.

The whole event was super fun organized chaos. I'll be back next year—maybe I will even bring a cross bike, not a vintage touring bike.
