Friday 25th July, first day of the ECMC 2008 weekend in Eindhoven. I missed quite a bit this weekend but was lucky not to miss the alleycat race. Here some pics:
Bagaboo made some awesome custom ECMC2008 bags.
Also the ECMC2008 "klakskes" looked crazy fresh (as does that pink outfit by the way).
A lot of messengers turned up at the meetingpoint behind MU, near the Lagombra bike track, which turned out to be not the easiest to ride on a track bike (or any other bike actually).
A lot of bikers at the start...
...and some explosion!
Diving straight into traffic (and almost into that bus), at amazing speed...rough.
Point was to make it to a cryptic list of checkpoints that were just handed out before as fast as possible. Eindhoven as an ultrafast puzzle to solve for all the international messengers...quite impressive!
All ended in a bigass party and alcohol + messengers = nudity...apparently.
Off to the tents for a short night and a hard qualification next day ...with a big hangover for sure...RESPECT!
(and welldone Tour De Ville, Laura , Tom and Jos!)
