So that's is the towpath story, what is this picture bounty talk? Well back in the day Mark Beech and I always had a side bet during a race who can get a race picture with no hands on the handlebars. Since race photographers are usually smart and taking pictures in gnarly areas this was always a challenge that was never completed. So Mr. Towpath side saddle racer inspired me, I'm taking the side bet to the whole mtb community!! The first person to post a picture to the KSD Facebook page of them riding there bike side saddle during a race I will personally give them $20..and it may even be a nice crisp bill!
A couple of rules though:
Has to be taken by a race photographer....you cannot have your significant other snap a picture of you at the start line while you pose (it may help your overall race though)
you cannot finish the race in last place! We will all know that in the picture of you side saddle through the rock garden you just passed someone anyway
and we'll probably use your picture as our facebook picture profile...and that is probably worth it without receiving payment!
