2011 RECAP

2011 was great fun even though things got scrambled due to some rednecks removing some of the course markers causing some peeps to get lost and put down some extra miles. However, everyone seemed pumped and positive.

Early on, Dan "Dads" Lionberg of 400 Smith Racing and former '08 '09 &'10 OxSxOx champ, left the front of the pack to never be seen again. I believe everyone will agree that he legitimately won the race, he rode strong and missed no turns. as for everyone else... it'd be very hard to tell who got 2nd, 3rd and so forth... so the numbers on the chart didn't mean much. Riders pushed hard and some rode way longer than others given the confusion and yet most people finished and finished with a huge grin asking for no explanations or anything else, just cold beer and single speed camaraderie. right on.

The 7th annual OxSxOx is coming to a gravel road near you !

Back for another round of good ol' one speed fun Colorado style, as customary, a new, different course awaits your legs, lungs and rubber, burning, yearning to make the finish line where good, cold beer patiently sits.

Registration is $15 and starts @ 9 :am to 9:30 then we'll take off around 9:45 for a short warm up group ride to the official start. Coffee will be provided by the Bean Cycle Coffee House, we'll have cake too !

All proceeds will go to local grassroots-D.I.Y powerhouse: Hammer Time ! check out all the cool and important work they do in our community and if inspired, think about volunteering !

Here's more info on their story, community space and educational programs.

In the meantime please take a moment to check out the story of the OxSxOx to learn why it exists and how it all started, dang, can't believe it's been 6 years.
