While all the Rando Photo categories are fairly broad, Wild Card allowed randonneurs to showcase permanents and populaires of 2010, in addition to brevets. Or, if a photo didn’t fit any of the other categories, it could find a home in the Wild Card.
As a reminder, the winner gets a fabulous $50 gift certificate from Velo Orange, and the runner-up will be the proud owner of Bike Snob NYC’s book, Bike Snob: Systematically & Mercilessly Realigning the World of Cycling.
Comments by our esteemed Rando Photo judge Gregg Bleakney follow each entry.
Winner: Bill Alsup, Skyline-Vernonia 200K Permanent.
Random red fire hydrant control? The guys seem to really be pushing their grey cells in this scene.
Runner Up: Joe Platzner, Seattle Randonneurs Fleche.
The most incredibly random cycling button I’ve ever seen. Only a randonneur could come up with something like this.
Nice job, Bill and Joe! Joe now has the distinction of being a two-time Runner Up in this year’s contest. There should be a medal that we can sell you for that!
