Cross-Word Challenge!

Making crochet hats and a Canby kart racing track 

A Cyclocross Success!

Hannah Hart of GS Astuto's Happy-Go cycling team runs race registration while another lucky somebody awaits a new crochet hat.

Competitive packs required no call-ups, building strength in Oregon's HUGE Cyclocross peloton.
 All the way up from SF, Mike's Bikes guys fueled up on Voodoo Donuts while racing two days in Stumptown!

Two dates in 2012,
a wild muddy course, and over 500 racers made the second year of Randy Word's CX Challenge, one of  astronomical growth.

The day before the leviathan Cross Crusade, many racers used the event to score in the BAR or just find their legs.

Race Promoter and Team Sponsor, Randy Word worked closely with OBRA officials, and course sponsor, "Pat's Acres" in Canby.

Featured as part of the HS Junior Cyclocross series the first week, then featuring additional prizes for the Juniors from David Guettler's River City Bicycle shop the second week, Randy Word promoted the event with the help of the folks at Pat's Acres in Canby, and of course, the OBRA Officials. Providing arrangements for raceside first aid, breakfast burritos and muscle milk girls, Randy was a big man on campus and seen as a legitimate new cyclocross race promoter in the fiscal tapestry flowing  off the hemline that skirts Cross Crusade.

A victorious fella with nutella.
Led by Chad Butler, and featuring the fabulous flying Hart Family, Fifth Place TEAM BAR phenom GS Astuto/Hapi-Go was a cultural presence and a force of nature as they volunteered, raced and won, and even provided amazing hats to all the people with cold heads.

Hapi - Go kids presented me a hand made Word-RCB "Coach John" ultra warm fleece lined  hat that I will cherish.

Even the fashion savvy guys from San Francisco asked,
 "where do we get the hats?"
