So you may be asking yourself...well...I raced Monster Track...now what do I do? There is a whole slew of events coming up this year to race, ride and participate in.

First off, this weekend is a night time alleycat in Bean town based on one of my favorite movies...The Big Lebowski.

Its the Dude Abides race.

Just cause Walter doesn't roll on Shomar Shabbos is no excuse for you to miss this alleycat.
March 3rd, in Boston, Jacob of jacob's bicycles, when not building awesome frames is putting on alleycat races in Boston.

more info is at the dudeabides
Basically its $10.00, starts in Boston at 6pm and should be kick ass.

There will also be goldsprints afterwards hosted by non-other than NYC goldsprints

This year the Cycle Messenger World Championships are a bit closer than Sydney Australia. This time around the 15th annual event is in Dublin Ireland. Check em out at Myspace/CMWCXV
August 3rd-7th.

To get there...you could win a free ticket at this years VELOCITY tour by being the fastest urban rider on the track. The event is open to all urban riders...but I believe only working couriers can win tickets to the courier world championships...imagine that. Squid organized an amazing event last year an the three city tour is on again with NYC being the first stop.
May 6th at Kissena Velodrome in Queens. Then its heading to San Francisco on May 28th as Part of the NACCC (North American Cycle Courier Championships)
Then to Chicago June, 2007 (date TBA)
This is a great oppurtunity for messengers to try their unique ability of dodging cabs and amp it up to a new level of athleticism by racing on a velodrome.

Another great Alleycat to check out is the Tour De Simpson. Last year it was the Tour LeMond in honor of Greg LeMond's Tour de France victory. The race coincides with the tour. Check out more info at LesDemoncats
This guy puts on Unbelievable Alleycats. Check his blog for great stuff about this race and pro-racing in general.
