In addition to the wet weather, we had a number of amazing mechanicals yesterday that deserve mention. Sweep veteran Seth Sternglanz taco'd a wheel at his last stop under a few bags of rice.
Another returning sweeper, Liam Casey, taco'd a wheel and had the presence of mind to snag a backup bike from the bike parking lot at AT&T park. Here he is with this corn-flower blue beauty substitution at the end:
Thanks to all the repeat sweepers who showed up yesterday, I recognize many of you from previous years. We appreciate your continued support of the 'Sweep. Alvin Chen and his crew came all the way up from San Jose to represent (no death trains this year). I'd also like to point out his exceptional choice of footwear for yesterday's weather, no wet socks to worry about there.
