    San Bruno HillClimb … where the fit meet the shan

    randimusty.jpgNorCal miscreant and uber-blogger, Rand Miller, has teased us with a social media posting that he’s willing to strap on a number for the January 1st bit of stupidity knows as the San Bruno HillClimb.

    Of course, if he doesn’t pre-register … it seems there may be no fire for that smoke.  But, we’ll see.

    Likely, it’s because Beth Newell has thrown down the gauntlet once again that he may be forced to actually show up and pedal.


    Still, who you DO see signed up for this beautifully retarded way to launch a year is the new Pistachio Pro, Menso de Jong – winner of last year’s edition in a smoking fast 15:13 up 3.something miles of SouthSanFrancisco brokebackmountain.  You also see the latest Yahooligan on the block, Nate English.   Throw in Chris Phipps as a 35+champion and I anticipate a freakishly fast ascent up that f’ing hill on Saturday.

    If there’s not too much headwind, you could see one of those boys breaking the course record.

    But, there is weather forecast – so, we’ll see who actually shows up and bakes the biscuits.


    I’ll be there. Will probably write a report about it and snap some pictures.  And will undoubtedly be the only p1/2 rider behind that pansyass Rand Miller at the finish.


    … let the games begin!

      Here’s a vote for moving the entire season a month later…. instead of Jan – Sep, Feb – Oct, starting with the “San Bruno Groundhog Day Hillclimb”. John Elgart once said: “most places cyclocross is about mud, rain, wind, and cold. We have the road season for that.”
