It’s fun to be in the middle of cyclocross season. It gets me pumped an motivated to ride hard on my daily ride. Last weekend we took the twins to the National Sports Center in Blaine for VeloCX, sponsored by Behind Bars, which happens to be in my neighborhood.
It was a great Minneapolis community event. In addition to the Behind Bars folks, All-City Bikes was there and so was Omnium Bike Shop from St. Paul (which recently gave my bike an awseme tune up). For food there was the Waffle Van and the Wienery from the West Bank provided the best pulled pork sandwiches Sarah and I had ever had. We aren't beer drinkers (which is probably sacreligious to the serious cross crowd) but there were kegs at the finishline for all to partake in. I was just there to watch some great racing and soak up some atmosphere. Got a few pics too.
WWF Wrestling theme? Macho Man and Jake the Snake, a couple of sweet bikes.

Not sure, but I think this guy is zipping his fly.

Oh yeah... and there was a huge bouncy castle!
