This is one of the only pictures I could find online of 2005 NYC World Messenger Championship. (so far) I know, people are still hung over from last night. This is Hodari Depalm who won 1st place in the cargo race in Jersey City. For NYC CWMC results check:
I was out of town this weekend so I missed a lot of this, including what I heard to be a 600 strong group ride from the races in Jersey City to Manhattan on Sunday. Everyone enjoyed a screening of "the Warriors" the bike ride...how could you not.
Last night things ended in Red Hook. Right after the fireworks I rode my bike to see what was going on. There was an endless stream of car traffic as I whipped around those poor stuck families waiting to get home. HA HA. The wonderful staff at the Hook, hosted the afterparty for the worlds and the place was packed with messengers. Bands played on into the night including Team Spider. Outside was the Bunny Hop competition. All in all a rockin weekend.
