Crusher in the Tushar
The first annual Crusher in the Tushar RoaDirt Race left Beaver, UT on July 16th at 8 in the morning and took intrepid cyclists up in to the Tushar mountains on roads most of us didn’t even know were there. Burke Swindlehurst, former Utah pro racer, had a dream and he turned it in to our joyful nightmare.
This race was not a logical choice for a singlespeeder with 10,400 feet of climbing in long gradual climbs, long steep climbs, long paved sections and lots of amazing views (singlespeeding and enjoying views are pretty mutually exclusive). No one every accused Cutthroaters of being logical.
It’s gonna be tougher in 2012!
