Rapha Roller Racing:
Forty-eight racers, representing 12 teams, took their cue from those that had mustered in Portland in February. With names like The Mashers, Doe-Eyed Killers, The Lesley’s (after the Austin icon), Half & Half, Cutters, and Fakingers, they brought every ounce as much attitude to the four, 48×15-geared bikes fixed to the stage. Mountain bikers, roadies, triathletes, messengers, fixies that would probably be messengers in any other town, collided, 500m at a time, in front of a capacity crowd.
“It’s a simple, 70-mile out and back. In the middle of the ride, at San Marco, we’ll get a wet cool down in the cold spring river running through the campus before turning around. Let’s stay together if we can and let’s get back before one of us spontaneously combusts. Any questions?”
