The 2nd unofffical Minnesota state single speed championship was held yesterday in Milaca, Mn. Two 15 mile laps of everykind of terra firma dished out the abuse for the riders. This trail is a must do on any riders to do list. It\'s kind at the begining, but then just starts throwing everything at you as you get closer to the end. Hard core! The SS\'s and a small geared contingent went off together at the start. Hollywood Henderson and a guy named Lance took the lead from the start and it looked that it was going to stay that way all the way to the finish. But lady luck played her hand, Lance broke his chain on the 2nd lap, Hollywood lost his rear brake and I finished my refreshing beverage and held onto my so-called crown as the unoffical state single speed champion. Kiya M. was the uncontested womens champ.
Did I mention that the PorkChopRacing.org crew also had a fresh keg of PBR at the start/finish and a most excellent beer stop at the highest point on the course. We were greeted with cans of PBR, bottles of home brews and a very happy crew of revelers delighted in our pain and agony of reaching the top. At the finish there was a spread of homemade cookies, gorp, chips, salsa and did I mention the roasted whole hog? Oh yeah! Pork and beer! with some red wine. The turn out was small, the entry fee was dirt cheap($15), the weather was perfect, and the good times were huge.
Thank you! to PorkChopRacing, Milaca Fire and Rescue, and the mayor of Milaca.
