Death Race is an annual motorized bicycle race Spooky Tooth has been sponsoring for the last 6 years. It has grown in popularity so much that not only do we have riders from all over the Western US show up to win, but we also have to hold a second race. This one around Halloween, The Undead Race!
At the first race 6 years ago, we went to the mountains in the Tucson desert with our outlaw bicycles and raced back to downtown as fast as lightning passing cars and street lights hitting 50mph downhill through Gates Pass. I fondly remember Nicole Dejiacomo winning that first year beating me by 7 seconds. Since then we have been finding ways to make our bikes faster and the race track safer. P1 Race Track in Tucson is a hairpinned dream. Off the starting line the confusion of corners simultaneously fires excitement and nausea as the first knee-slider narrowly wipes out the starting pack.
Recently I sold the business to our young friend "MiQ" Morrison. He was in the midst of planning the Undead Race and assuming new management of our bicycle shop when he quickly and tragically passed away. He lived free and fast. I would like to honor him with this, the Spooky Tooth Cycles Undead Race.
Everyone is welcome! Electric or gas as long as you can legally call it a motorized bicycle you qualify for racing. A jaw dropping great time, an excuse to party and promote a community movement of alternative transportation.
Come on out next Saturday for an event so fun and wild you may never see the likes of again...
