This event could not be more real. It's the realist. There's even a website to guarantee it's reality. You can even pre-register.
http://monsterstandby.blogspot.com/SPONSORS: we love messenger owned and operated businesses. It give us hope that maybe one day we will be able to do something else with our lives. Hit me or Danny up if you're interested in getting your name / logo up on the website, registration packet, back of the t-shirt etc.

From the jerks that brought you ECMC Brooklyn, Fixt of Fury, Late Night Frost Bite, the 10-9 Work Day Challenge and all sorts of other dumb shit, here is the single most important bike messenger event since whatever thelast most important bike messenger event was... MONSTER STANDBYThe Alley Cat. Formerly synonymous with Messenger Race, the Alley Cat hasevolved into something much bigger, grander, and significantly more hardcore the world over.Underneath all it's hype and flamboyance it remains a race based on theworld of bike messengers. It's an exaggeration, a cartoon of what messengers do each and every day.HOWEVER, the riding around, delivering packages, risking your neck for $5is only half of the challenge messengers face. For most, the much bigger challenge is boredom.Yes, standing by, waiting for the next job to happen. When will it happen? When I order this next cup of coffee? When my slice goes into the oven? When I finally get to the good chapter of my book? When this girl gives meher number? When I order this next beer? Standing By is a far greater challenge than delivering the job.THEREFORE, we offer you the greatest challenge known to the entire world ofbike culture : MONSTER STANDBY.Inspired by an advertisement for some shit that happened in LA, we've runwith it. A 9 hour challenge that will not prohibit you from racing in Monster Track. A challenge not just of mind and body, but of spirit. DO YOU HAVE THE LEGS? DO YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE?Drink coffee for points. Drink beer for points. Do crossword puzzles for points. Deliver packages for points. Race Monster Track for points. Get amassage for points. BIKES! BEER! PRIZES! SAUNAS!Check it out on Facebook, and some more real web presence will happen soonenough. Or hit me up for details!!! -Danny k Samurai Messenger 2024984080 _______________________________________________ Messengers mailing list Messengers@xxxxxxxxx http://ifbma.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/messengers
