We did it, people! SIX YEARS! The Resurrection has now survived longer than Webster (the TV show, not Emmanuel Lewis who I think is still alive, but who has time to fact check?)! And what a day. This Resurrection took place earlier in season than usual, being in March instead of April. We could have had terrible weather, but Seattle gave us incredible sunshine as we sent more than fifty racers all over the city to get smeared with blood, confess to terrible, terrible things, climb awful hills and hang out with rabbits.
Without the help of our sponsors, volunteers and riders we could never keep doing this, so to us you’re ALL winners. It’s just that some of you are a more winner-y than others, for example our top five overall racers:
- Fred Marshall
- Matt Face
- Sean Marsh
- Dustin Riggs
- Colin Northcraft
- Ali Masterson
- Rachel Green
- Molly S.
1st/2nd and 3rd/4th pairs this years opted for opposite routes around the city, with Fred and Matt taking the clockwise route and Sean and Dustin taking the counter-clockwise route:
Between flat tires and close times, it’s hard to tell which route was the better choice but we DO know that Fred took home this year’s AWESOME champion’s bag for Seagull Bags. The prize table was fully stocked with other good, too, from the awesome folks at Recycled Cycles, Art Core, Swrve, Bombus Bikes, Peddler Brewing, Emerald City Bicycles, Sugar Bakery, and All Hail the Black Market:
Be sure to check them all out, and maybe even send them a note (or better yet an order!) and tell them you appreciate them supporting bike events like ours.
There are a ton more photos on Facebook (special thanks to Rob and Dida!), and all of the photos with Demetrius are in the gallery after the cut as well. If you have photos, post a link in the comment or on our Facebook wall!
Thanks again, and see you at the Nine to Five, White Trash Sprints, NACCC, Tour de Watertower and all the other great Seattle summer events we’re looking forward to!
