Here in the good ole U.S. of A. we like to create our own, bastard versions, of sports. Let us add the bike race to the list. Up at the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition’s annual biking festival, held in Concord, Massachusetts, you can now participate in a bike race AND a pie eating contest all in one. Thats right, its a pie race.

What the deal is, the race is a 6 1/2 mile race with 3 pie eating stations placed along the race route. When you reach a “pie stop”, you must eat a slice of pie before you can move on, there can be no pie left on the plate or in your mouth. Obviously the faster you eat the pie, the better you will do in a race, so now bike racing is not a battle of endurance and dehydration, no its also a test of intestinal fortitude.

For any of our Massachusettes readers, there is still time to register. The race is on August 25th, register by heading to their site here.

Bike racing, it is now as American as apple pie. Personally, I think they should’ve made the riders eat a whole pie, just so i can see someone spew like Davey “Lardass” Hogan (see video).

Sorry Injury Rate…we had to do it. Nice slip n slide post though
