And the Winner of the Annual Juggernaut Golden Cobblestone is…

The Juggernaut Golden Cobblestone traveling award is given to the team rider who has most clearly displayed true Juggernaut qualities during the previous calendar year. The award is kept in the possession of the recipient for the duration of one year at which point it is passed to the next winner. The prize is typically displayed in a prominent place such as the dashboard of a car or in a metal cage attached to a rope chain worn around the neck. The value of the Golden Cobble is estimated to be in excess of $100,000*.

The 2016 winner of the Juggernaut Golden Cobblestone is White Dynamite for traveling under cloak of secrecy from California to North Carolina to the Pisgah 111 race course unannounced to his team mates. He didn’t have to do it. He could have just stayed in Laguna Beach where its always nice. But no, while many Juggernauts sat the race out, probably doing sad or socially unacceptable activities instead, Dyno got himself to the line and rode to glory. It was the greatest display of Juggernaut swagger this year and for that, Dyno is regaled with our highest honor.

Second place goes to El Guapo who was on the podium every weekend and continues to be the most legit rider on the team.

Third place goes to Fang who made his hand look like his foot.

To the runners up and the rest of the Jugg brethren, as they say in the place where everything rhymes, “tough titty little kitty”. Better luck next year suckers.

*Cobblestone value may vary by $100,000. Actual cobblestone was found in Rock Creek Park moments after Angry Cernich flipped over a log during a night ride and smashed his nuts.

Five Steps to Success in CX Racing

screen-shot-2016-10-31-at-3-55-35-pm

Step 1: Show up late and slightly buzzed
Step 2: Line up in the back row
Step 3: Check entry to make sure you are sandbagging like a mofo
Step 4: Pass 100 or so people on your mountain bike
Step 5: Wrap up your season after one race

This is a good example of how we dish it out in the CX scene:

Editors note: In this instance, and probably only this instance, we, the Juggernaut, are represented by the huge black man in the example.

Juggernauts Detained in Elaborate Sting Operation

img_1247

During the 2016 MOCO Epic the Juggernaut ESF was momentarily detained in an elaborate sting operation by several women with fake mustaches and futuristic pistols after being lured into a wooded area with free beer. A devious yet effective method of entrapment. Feeling pleasantly buzzed yet wary of further persecution, the Juggernaut made quick work of the remaining ride and gave the MOCO trails a much deserved spanking.

The ESF started out at the Jack Rose Saloon Devils Backbone tap takeover and whiskey pairing before heading out on the bikes for a late night loop in the wilds of DC. It went extremely well and extremely poorly all at the same time.

Patapsco Epic: We Put This Charity Ride Up on Our Knee and Spanked It

ptap-epic-0074-(ZF-5996-93779-1-001)

Thor and Gorka took on the 50 mile edition of the Patapsco Epic in support of trail advocacy group MORE. The pre-race briefing suggested a 7-10 hour ride time for Advanced and Expert riders. They didn’t take into account Advanced Expert riders like the Juggernaut ESF. Got this thing done in 5:40. Race course – spanked. Beer garden – spanked. Butterflies – spanked. Vegan food truck – spanked.

We even stopped for some photo booth action. Feast your eyes on this ladies:
