    Whoa. 4pm!?! I might actually be able to get this one in before work for a change! Awesome. Who wants to form Team Dead Fuckin' Last?All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    There IS an expectation to perform; we must embody the name! No fuckin' winners on my team (self-improvement is masterbation; self-destruction is the answer)!All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    a "just google it, dude" is all you got? why even bother posting then?

    i'm not desperately struggling to find photos for filler, i'm asking if y'all know of hidden gems, have favorites, or have some old school boston shots. anyone have the link to the kid crash photo album?

    that'd be rad. if they would want their a spot on the flier or something like that let me know.

    if you guys are feeling a bit apprehensive about racing, just find someone who knows the area well to dispatch - dispatching will be taking the easiest lines, so even if they've been out of the game for a bit you could still have a competitive team.this life may not be for you - ridecrazy

    Joining up for this. We can heckle other teams, right?Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    so some updates for race format -
    teams will consist of four riders and one dispatcher. dispatchers will be seated in one place, and receive checkpoints, and then dispatch them out to their four riders, using whatever communication they want. some courier companys are putting together teams and will be using radios, but cellphones will also work fine.

    first prize is four freight rolltop bags, the big ones.

    I won't be in the country for the race, unfortunately. Brian from right coast courier is the guy organizing it. don't feel tentative about coming out, its a fun format and it looks they're putting together a good afterpartythis life may not be for you - ridecrazy

    we'll use courier pigeons to dispatchsomebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    Only about half the teams I think they expected turned out, possibly because of weather or a teammate not being able to make it. We had fun with our check point, made 5 beer case boxes with half a cinder block in each for the riders to carry."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
