Hot of the presses come the results of Dublin's Halloween alleycat.
About 30 riders set off from Tonehenge on a long course that suited the geared among the riders.
A couple of crashes and Ed and Kropa getting pulled by the cops were the only negatives to the race, but everyone seems ok and hopefully the lads won't end up with summonses.
2nd: Gyula (last years winner)
3rd: Tomas (Cyclone)
5th: Al (1st Fixie)
And I believe that Doricea won a prize for most blood spilled, ambulance was called for her but she refused to get in, that's the spirit!
Well done to the organisers.
After this race, I do feel that questions need to be asked for future races, the main one being: why the hell do organisers continue to have race starts/finishes on the Green? It makes no sense. 30-50 messengers drinking and smoking and then barreling off to do a race, it's no wonder people are getting pulled by the cops, and it's a miracle that none of the races have been shut down, it's only a matter of time.
What's wrong with Wilton Place, Barrow Street, Grand Canal? All places out of the public eye where we can drink and hang out to our hearts content. Just a thought, but it has to be said that no matter how 'cool' it is to hang around the green like 'we don't give a fuck what you think'... the reality is that what we do is illegal and if we shove it in peoples faces for long enough there will surely be a reaction.
