I thought I’d go ahead and post a couple of videos that were taken while we were in SF, before the whole “Raphy-blah-blah” thing happened (yes, I said “Raphy,” no that was not a typo).
Before you party, you have to pre-party. It’s like stretching before you run, or drinking a beer before you ride up a hill. Without the pre-party, your actual partying will never reach the high level of performance that people expect from you. We here at Hodala take our partying seriously, and so I present you with a video of a couple of our members pre-partying:
Of course, after the pre-party, comes the party, and no party is complete without someone telling you that you’re ruining their good time. Ruining things is something that Hodala also excels at, just ask this dude at second 45 of the below video, or really anyone who has ever come into contact with us:
Cleveland put up some photos of the crew down in SF if you’re interested. Check ’em out.
Philly claims the SSCXWC 2012!
Looks like we’re all travelling east next year. See you there.
Updated: As stated in the next post, Santa Cruz actually won the race for 2012. When no one showed up to claim their prize on Sunday night, Philadelphia desperately tried to step up but the promoters had spoken their peace. Better luck next year Philly.
Qualifiers are just starting, so the parties are just getting going. Here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come.
Our new skinsuits came in just in time for Woodland Park. There’ll be a more comprehensive race report coming soon (Spoiler Alert: we’re the fucking champions) but most of us are on our way to SF for SSCXWC. More to come early next week when we all sober up.
A couple of folks on the team grabbed some fancy new tires from Cascade Bicycle Studio in preparation for Woodland Park this weekend. It looks like we’re finally going to get some ‘cross weather.
