North American Cycle Courier Championships
So it's no surprise to anyone that this week is a big deal. We haven't really plugged it here because it just hasn't seemed real. It's still hard to process: the NACCCs are here in Chicago. More work than you could ever imagine has been put into making this a success. It's scary how good this will be. Holy crap, it's so soon! IT'S THIS FUCKING WEEKEND!! "Labor day weekend, 2008!" Do you have any idea how many times we've told that to people? I'm going to say 946...this month at least.
So many people are amazed to see what Chicago has to offer as a host city. They sure as hell won't be let down. Aside from the visitors, mostly every local is in for something s/he has never seen before. Imagine 300 messengers from all over the world coming to have a good time and see what Chicago has to offer. Top male and female messenger champions will get tickets to Tokyo to participate in the World's next year. Every genuine dive bar, good restaurant, realest of bike shops, and loyal manufacturer will see their faithful clientèle skyrocket and finally gather in one place to hang out, race and have a good time. No lies, it's going to be a little intimidating, but at the end of the day, all that really matters is whether or not you hardened up and gave it a shot to participate. After that you'll truly understand what this craze, this fascination, this addiction, what this love is all about. NACCCs are such a beautiful thing. We're doin' it the Chicago way. Be sure not to miss out on it.
