2011 - A Year in Review

Stuckylife: 2011 

We had initially planned to assemble a witty and comprehensive eulogy for the passing of 2011;
instead, we went for a banger ride on New Year's Day. 

You will have to settle for eighteen unedited photos that we feel could be loosely stitched together into an evocative narrative.

The plan.
The first Harbour Road Sprint...in January.
The face-off.
The Masters BMX National champion.
The love.
The cold.
The day when there was absolutely no question in your mind why you continue to do this.
The legitimacy?
The hope for the future.
The perfect podium.
The middle of nowhere.
The Badgers.
The community-building steeped in mischief and alcohol.
The politics.
The re-opening of the Commonwealth Legacy Velodrome (ftw)!
The team.
The talent.
The proof.

To everyone who has ever volunteered at a checkpoint, attended a WSPRS meeting, sponsored an event, cheered from the sidelines, or otherwise supported our community: 

This only came together because of your love and commitment.

Thank you.

Thank you all!


See ya out on the road.
