Sooo... here we are again...
It's that time of the year again. Time to start planning the mayhem that is the Paddy's Day Massacre. Last years event was an unparralelled success, and we want it to keep going that way. So once again there's an open invitation to the world to come and sample the delights that Dublin has to offer, being... em.... alcohol... parties... and lots of bike riding... with very little sleep.
No timetable as yet, but I will update this blog as things progress. There will be the usual main Paddy's Day Race on Friday night, out of towners race on Saturday, and hopefully some track time on the Sunday or Monday. Add to that the usual sprints, skids, circles, footdown, trackstand, polo(it will happen this year I promise) and there is really no reason for you not to come.
So anyone wishing to come drop me a line here, and ayone who might be interested in sponsoring we would LOVE to hear from you. Last years prizes were fucking great, so we'll hopefully get another great stash for all those willing to brave the weekend.
Ok, peace out, get thinking about flights etc... and I'll add to this soon.
Oh, and if anyone wants to submit some ideas for logos please feel free. We will be getting t-shirts spoke cards, maybe stickers and patches as well.
Fri Night Alleycat:
2nd: Sean and Adam
3rd: Will and John
4th: Murt and Brad
This was one of the most complicated alleycats to garner results from. The first few placings were easy but after that it got a bit murky. It's taken me all afternoon sifting through results to sort out the final standings.
Oh and DFL: All the girls. Should really have gotten a prize for most creative answers. I've never seen myself being raped by a horse before, it was an interesting image...
2nd: Donnacha(sorry if I spelt that wrong man)
3rd: Big John
Round 1: Nate
Round 2: Dotc
Round 3: Ed
Props to Jack for coming 2nd in this with only one properly functioning hand. He rocked it all weekend.
Put your money where your mouth is round: Jamesie
Well Lizard and Fergus arrived back first but hot on their heels was the one-handed-wonder Jack who stormed to be our first visitor across the finish line.
DFL: Lee. His chain came off and he realised that most Dublin people don't know their own city very well. We were beginning to get worried but he eventually made it back to claim DFL and brings home with him St Patricks Handlebars.
Unknown Distance: Jack
Devil take the hindmost: Zak
Win and out: 55 John
And congratulations to team Ireland for winning the first Ireland vs. NY/Glasgow Italian pursuit.
In fact congratulations to anyone who made it down to the track to race on Sunday. I know I felt like vomiting after my first lap, and that feeling didn't leave me all day!
So that's it for this year. i hope everyone had a ball and I look forward to seeing everyone back next year, maybe for a more low-key weekend as we do have the worlds coming up next summer.
Look out for some photos here and on my profile, Robs profile, dublin messengers forum, in fact everywhere we can fit them.
One more quick shout out to all the sponsors:
Trackstar, Reload(amazing bag), Rapha, Gromada, Cyclone.
