The Uber Drahtesel - Wire Donkey
Wow! Just wow! Everyone that experienced it, will tell you that this was one tough Donkey! Saturday morning, June 16th had beautiful weather for this event that featured both a 37mile/50+k, and a 62mile/100k routes. Rolling hills across amazing countryside, and heavy gravel conspired to make both of these two routes among the hardest in Texas! These routes just don't let up and the racers were pushed hard all the way to the finish line. Those cold Austin Beerworks brews at the finish never tasted so good!
Special thanks to the volunteers of the New Ulm Fireman's Park for hosting us on their beautiful property and the great finish line food! Also special thanks to our friends at Pacenti Cycle Design, Orange Seal Cycling, Austin Beerworks, and Brad Houston Law.

The Whizzerville Hauler - McMahan, TX - May 12th
Thanks to everyone that came out for the Whizzerville Hauler! What a great day on a mix of gravel roads, with only 19% pavement, and followed up with a seriously challenging section of sandy roads out on Sand Hill and K & L roads! Racers had a great time whether they choose the Short Whizz or the Long Whizz! The sand claimed many victims from both distances, and even our elite racers that filled the podiums on the Long Whizz routes had to dismount and run some sections! Special thanks to our hosts for the after-ride pizza party at the Whizzerville Hall!
See you at the Whizzerville Hauler in 2019!
