    Scramble Results

    First off, thanks to everyone who helped out:
    - Karmical
    - Terror_in_pink
    - BlastRadius
    - Dolface
    - The_Loin
    - Beppe
    - Darian
    - Chuck

    Had a pretty good turnout, 28 people in all, but one guy got a flat at the start and couldn't race.

    In the end, Harryhood ended up taking first. Actually, he tied with Koshi, but first place was determined by a trackstand competition, and Harryhood ended up taking home $145. Koshi took second, and a nice red Chrome Metropolis. Third went to 46x17 (Clayton) who got a lovelife bag for his girl. Fourth was a tie between Tightpants and Andy, can't remember what they took. Fifth was a tie between Ostro (Kamil), who got took the IRO crankset and Dolface (Galen), who took the Shadow Conspiracy chain.

    Everyone got something. Dokushoka, who tied with Cory for DFL, got a Phil Wood T-shirt and a hamburger bell.

    I have pictures too.

    well done and congrats to Judah and everyone else who put it on! Sounds great.
    I wish I could have participated.

    where was the after party? I dont recognize that bar.

    and FYI - Valencia, Spain is completely flat and ideal for fixies. Sadly, mine is the only one here. I may be mistaken, but in 2 and a half weeks and riding all over the city, I haven't seen another track back.

    also, anyone know is a Moishe (Mo) participated in the race? He's Indian and rides a red KHS aero track (slanted top tube).

    Judah put together a fun course with alot of fun challenges. Great job organizing and great prizes.

    I'll be putting the cranks I won on my new project.

    Raleigh Record, got this for free (and a univega gran tursimo) when my landlord cleaned out the parking garage. Sweet

    Thanks again Judah!

    Hey, a few people didn't finish at all. Lost manifest, missed checkpoints, blown-out BB...

    Sounds like I have a lot to live up to!!!

    The pictures look great and its so good to hear that you guys had so much fun! I was sad I couldnt be there. Congrats to Dennis and Koshi - I am truly impressed, and somewhat shocked From what I heard it sounds like it was a killer route.

    Someone else organize it next time

    I would post a pic of a used manifest/bonus sheet, but Tightpants has them all, and I have a feeling that they got thrown away.

    Checkpoints were:

    Mandatory first - Alamo Square @ Pierce
    then I would have gone:
    - Peace Pagoda @ Japantown
    - Dutch Windmill in GG park @ the ocean
    - 26th and Ortega
    - 21st and Chatanooga
    - 39 Isis
    - Gallagher and Clemetina

    Then I would have gotten my bonus points by going to:
    - Parking garage (for a ticket) @ 4th and harrison (whole foods) on the way to:
    - Indian/Pakistani on 3rd between Harrison and Bryant (for a menu)
    - Caltrain @ 4th and king (for a caltrain pamphlet)
    - Trader Joe's @ 8th and Brannan (for fearless flyer)
    - Back up the zigzag, stopping along the way at one of the liquor stores (for a sixer of cans and a sixer of bottles)
    - searched for a big rock while heading for:

    The end at Buena Vista park on Haight and Buena Vista West/Central

    Koshi finished with a non-adjusted time of 1:54, but we made him go get beer and fruit so that he could get some bonuses. It took him ~ 6minutes to get those things, which gave him a 11 minute bonus. He would've beaten Dennis if he'd only gotten a six pack of bottles, instead of, or as well as, a sixer of cans.

    Wait a minute I thought there were two first places and that I was second jk!

    Anyway it was a blast! Thank you so much for putting this on. To the people at lovelife - thanks for the cool bag! My wife is very happy with it! To who made the spokecards! Thanks! They look great! To the loin thanks for the great shirts - very nice! Thanks to all the cp workers and nikki's crew for putting up with us

    I did the course somewhat reverse but worked well too:

    Alamo Square @ Pierce
    - 21st and Chatanooga
    - 39 Isis
    - Trader joe's
    - Gallagher and Clemetina
    - Peace Pagoda @ Japantown
    - Got big fruit on Irving street
    - 26th and Ortega
    - Dutch Windmill in GG park @ the ocean
    - Picked up a 1 minute rock.
    - picked up much beer on haight.
    - went to finish

    Thanks again!
    See you next time!

    nice, that's exactly the route i took. got the 15 minute flat tire bonus at the windmill, and picked up a MUNI ticket and 6-pack of bottles on the way to the finishline.

    Anyone have any info on the podcast of this race that John was doing? Anyone have a link to his site or similar?

    There was also someone writing about the race for a newspaper/zine in Japan. Would be great to see this when its done.
