Racing For Bangers & Mash...

What could be better after a tough race than a heaping plate of bangers and mash? Nuthin', huh?bangers & mash

CHANCHO HOMBRES..

Since before the millennial rollover, Minnesota men have taken home every amateur crown at Iowa's premier sprint, The Pigman, chancho hombreor "Little Pig" as is it known to some. Duluth's Brian Bich has won eight of the last 10 editions of this venerated event, and Medina's Kevin O'Connor has won the other two (and at least four titles in the 90s, aw well!). In syntactically awry Spanish, Brian and Kevin are the REY CHANCHO HOMBRES. Loosely translated, they are the Kings of the Pig Men. This is not to suggest they look anything like the grotesque guy in the photo, though we couldn't resist publishing the shot. It is totally sick, isn't it?

The 18th issue of the Pigman Sprint Triathlon is Sunday (June 6) and Brian and Kevin will be there. So will rookie pro from St. Paul, Devon Palmer. Will this be the year that Minnesota's macho reign ends? Will an Iowan (or someone from another state) finally take the amateur title?

We don't think so....
