Part of me was at the 2011 edition of Critical Dirt, a hardcore 'cross stage race across former Eastern Germany, 480+ kilometers of body punishing roads, forest trails and other obscure pathways that the Harry Otter Punk Society cooked up over four days. In my absence we still fielded two of our CremaCycles Rasenmähers piloted by two of our good friends, Henri Lesewitz and Stephan Geiss. Henri will be doing a write up on the bike in an upcoming issue of Tour Magazin here in Germany, Stephan will spread the Crema love via ProCycling. Stephan also became our one-man team for Biciclista and CremaCycles and did a stand up job in the process with a 4th, 1st, 2nd and 2nd place on all four stages and being a contender for the overall. Our buddy Benno from Switzerland rightfully nabbed the overall from Stephan, but both came away with mutual respect and best of all fond memories from their experience.
Big Thank You to Stephan for representing! Here are some snapshots from his journey, we will post more photos and links as they come available.
