The Huffy Hustle

Hey Gang,

We had a party yesterday. It was pretty awesome. The best things about this party was that it included bike racing.


What type of bike racing you ask? It was a prologue time trial, thru the back alley's of my neighborhood, on a tiny purple huffy. And i mean tiny, as in built for a 6 year old. But don't be fooled by this seemingly inferior, $5 dollar thrift store purchase, tiny purple girls bike... we put that baby thru the ringer big time last night and it held up to pretty much all of it. This bike is a true Champion. Plus it's fast too. Out of the saddle was the preferred method for most racers but leg speed was a must, given the extremely short cranks.

The course was no push over either. Gravel, pot holes, water, stairs, sketchy decent's, random concrete barriers, probably a plethora of rusty nails and broken glass, beer hand-up's, candy/dollar wall, all preceded by beer chugging... It was not an event for the faint of heart.

Once it was all said and done, after everyone had taken their run and after all the random bonus's had been calculated.... The overall winner of the first ever 'Huffy Hustle' was Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey, and several of our other top riders, received some top notch Colavita olive oil plus some Balsamic stuff as prizes for their outstanding rides. I'd say the entire event was a wild success and i'm already day-dreaming about the next Huffy Hustle.

Now let's go race some cross bikes!
