I surely fell off the Post a Day 2011 Challenge
wagon bike for the weekend and had a hard time getting back on! We were in Issaquah as spectators while Daddy participated in Starcrossed, a notable cyclocross race event, so please excuse my forgetfulness while we were having a blast.
For what I lack in posts, I will make up in sharing about awesomeness we had during this weekend.
We enjoyed a bread bowl from Pike Place Chowder in the famous Pike Place Market. We topped our downtown early dinner with a pirsozkhi from Piroshky, Piroshky.
While both eateries were a great highlight of our trip, I must say that it doesn’t compare to Humnoy meeting the current US National Cyclocross Champion Todd Wells (left) and Ryan Trebon (right) this weekend. Doesn’t he look stoked?
As you can imagine, this cyclocross biz is all new to me and any other Laotian on this planet. I have a hard time explaining cyclocross to my friends let alone explaining it to my parents! Lao logic would be that in Laos, no one would pay to ride a bicycle in mud and rain. That’s just how “kone Lao” had to get around! At these races, it’s safe to say I’m the only Lao person there even if it is because I’m a bike-wife.
Do you ride bicycles? Do you do it for fun, sport or necessity? Have you met a well-known athlete in your favorite sport(s)?
