Hell, Nelson and I were racing the clock all morning looking for the action. We were in the boondocks like “where the Fakawi?!”
The most impressive thing was Jimmy. Putting on an event like this is no easy task. I spoke to him a few days before the event and he told me, “it’s been crazy man having to get permits and all the other BS.
There was one moment when we were waiting for the winners to cross the line, and I asked Jimmy, “When was the last time you road “Fakawi”? The expression on his face said it all – it was bitter sweet. I am only assuming, but he looked happy and sad all at once; happy because Fakawi has become the event it is today, but sad he couldn’t be mixing it up. Shit I was behind the camera thinking “I need a CX bike!!!”
See you next year Fakawi and maybe in a different light.
