Now here's what happens when you combine both.<br /> <br /> Nighttime clydesdale championship racing (that is human clydesdales - 200lb+ men and 160lb+ women) followed by a dance party with performances by wanderlust circus and Cumbia Band, El Raffa De Alaska at the Deschutes Brewery Warehouse.<br /> <br /> Beginners and unicross racing started bright and early the next morning with probably more than a few hangovers in tow at the River City Bicycles Cyclocross Crusade race. Prizes were given to the costumes.<br /> <br /> CrankMyChain! Cycle TV producer, Dan Kaufman, stepped away from the camcorder long enough to don a guitar, bicycle and elvis suit but he did manage to strap a camera to Robert Ping's seat post. Why was Dan racing robert Ping's bike when he has a perfectly good Cross Check? Well he doesn't have a perfectly good Cross Check anymore. More on that in another episode. But you can see pictures at the end of the Friday's Cyclocross Super D video.<br /> <br /> A good time was had by all except a handful of not-so fancy pants Cat A racers like Molly Cameron who were too good to sport costumes but not good enough to beat costumed racers like Carl Decker and Adam Craig (who actually wore a green suit that completely covered his mouth and nose).<br /> <br /> This CrankMyChain! Cycle TV video would not have happened if not for BicyclingHub.com , River City Bicycles <a href="http://www.RiverCityBicycles.com">http://www.RiverCityBicycles.com</a>, Visit Bend <a href="http://www.VisitBend.com">http://www.VisitBend.com</a> The Rebels <a href="http://www.myspace.com/rebelsrocknroll">http://www.myspace.com/rebelsrocknroll</a> and, of course, all the Cyclocross Crusaders <a href="http://www.CrossCrusade.com">http://www.CrossCrusade.com</a><br /> <br /> Thank you for watching and our apologies for all the good stuff we missed or just couldn't edit into this years video. Happy Halloween and Feliz Día de los Muertos!
