Urban Assault Ride
Part road race, part 'cross, part scavenger hunt and part total regression to your childhood. Three hours, Eight checkpoints (two mystery checkpoints), eight super fun obstacles. Not pictured here are the bag toss and a live version of the Paper Boy video game. Top it all off with frantic big wheel skidding around Pioneer Square and a wet crawl through a blow up obstacle course and you have the most fun you'll have on a bike all year--even in a steady, 53 degree rain. Jess is not yet healed enough to race so I rode with Sorella teammate Sage, and we grabbed 2nd place and a free pair of Keen shoes! So much better than free beer. Jess was our staff photographer and mystery check point helper. Couldn't have done it without her.

Afterwards, I rocked the mini-bike limbo contest and just missed out on a sweet custom UAR Timbuk2 bag. But I got 3rd, and had a blast.
