This past weekend Peyton Wilson completed two whole laps of the Heron Lakes course on a comfort bike with only one functional brake (pictured right). She tagged the Black Knight going over the uphill barriers but didn't expect to get a brand new Sirrus Sport Disc as her prize! Thanks to @iamspecialized for making dreams come true. .
From @cyclocrosscrusade's page:
"At each of the eight Cyclocross Crusade races, The River
City Bicycles Black Knight takes to the course throughout the day with
prizes to be won. Racers win a prize by catching and tagging The Black
Knight while on course during their race. It’s not always as easy as it
sounds, though, the Black Knight likes to race! Last Sunday, the Black
Knight had a very special prize to award to a very deserving racer.
9 year old Peyton Wilson was racing the Junior 3/4/5s on Sunday at Heron
Lakes when the Black Knight passed her. She was able to catch him and
get the prize coupon from him. He told her to meet him at the finish
line to collect the prize. Little did she know what or who would be
waiting for her at the finish line.
Thanks to Specialized Bicycles, River City presented Peyton with a brand new
Specialized Sirrus. River City Bicycles owner, David Guettler was
waiting for Peyton at the finish line to present the bike to her
himself, while grinning from ear to ear. We can't wait to see Peyton at
her next race on her new bike! Congratulations Peyton!
