TX Tough Grand Prix

Last night, Team ThinkCash went to Dallas to have dinner and catch the TX Tough Grand Prix, a professional criterium held at Victory Park in Dallas.  There was over $25,000 in cash prizes, so the event attracted cyclists from some of the best domestic cycling teams including Toyota United, Jittery Joe’s, and Team Garmin / Chipotle.

This is the first pro cycling event I’ve attended and I had a blast.  To see 100 riders go by at 35-40mph is pretty awe-inspiring.  We even decided at the last minute to sponsor a $300 prime (pronounced “preem”) for one lap.

The next stage in TX Tough is the rally ride on Sunday.  I was planning to ride in it, but considering that a hurricane will be blowing through, it’s not looking good.

[UPDATE:  The TX Tough rally has been cancelled and rescheduled for Sep. 27 in Bonham]

Here’s a short video from last night’s criterium:
