Meet the mutants!

As they say, don't believe everything you read.  Still, an entertaining little article about the Spillway and its riders.

Some things overheard from the Scramble Race Director tonight: a podium
shaped like Mayan pyramids, unlimited Monsta' energy drink,
Eastbank-green caution tape, and a special surprise.

The weather forcast for the

The weather forcast for the week leading up to and including Sunday so far looks like it will deliver perfect racing conditions.  I cannot wait for this raceday as the Spillway Scramble always seems to deliver one heck of a good time.  It also doesn't hurt that my brother Ron is cooking a huge pot of jumbalaya!!!  See everyone this weekend.
