The coed race in Jackson Park was the one I came for today and this shit was fun to watch. It was my first time trying to cover cross and I had a good time capturing all the riders jumping on and off their bikes. The obstacles were handled using a wide array of tactics. Most riders dismounted, some tried to make it and wiped out, but Waldo came through with no problem every time. He was certainly on a mission to locate the Wizard and scroll.
I understand it’s silly but the whole race had me thinking of that 90s brand called Coed Naked. I kept wondering if they ever made a cycling shirt and what the saying would have been. “Use your dick as a kickstand?” I wondered. No, no, I wouldn’t make it in the mainstream t-shirt business. I searched the Google and couldn’t find any sign they made a cycling shirt. Anyway, it sounds like this cross thing happens just about every Sunday so let’s do it again soon because it’s fun to watch.
