Shenandoah 100 2012: Rivers of Mud

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As a side note to all things Juggerly and idiotic, we also race, and we raced the Shenandoah 100. Like we always do, we rocked out some nice times. It was muddy. Really muddy. There was much hardship and much glory to be had. You wouldn’t ride out into a rainstorm like the one(s) we experienced but if you were already out there, you might just as well dig it.

Looking back, we think of the race more fondly since at present 30% of the bones in the participating riders are broken and jutting into adjoining internal organs. Which makes it hard to ride. But we will return.

Side note to the side note: A 3-week old baby showed up to cheer us on that the Olsongs named after our very own Ryan “50/50” Douglas in a gesture of team unity.

In addition to the 2013 team goal of buying a conversion van with a wizard mural on the side we are also aiming to trim 2 hours from our finishing times in an effort to sweep the next Shen 100 podium. Phase 1, more premium beers. The cheap ones slow us down.

  1. Wow…50/50 is pretty generous these days. It feels more like 90/10…like some weird blend of polyester and wool neck warmer that your aunt may have given you for a high school graduation present. Nonetheless, let lil’Ryan rises up to wup up on his old man, broken bones and all. I just hope that kid gets his mama’s moustache!
