Talking SSCXWC, Nationals, and Season-Long Antics with Adam Craig
When the dust had cleared and the snow had settled, racers gathered at Moshulu, a docked boat turned swanky restaurant in Philadelphia, to relive the magic of the weekend, and to watch the poker game that would determine where next year’s race would be held. During the evening, SSCXWC men’s winner Adam Craig and I caught up in a “fireside chat” that involved a whole lot of his fast-paced banter, and a request to not let him, at any point during the night, jump off the side of the boat. In his defense, he was wearing appropriate swimming gear for a portion of the night, after he donned the tradition winner’s garb: the gold Speedo.
On his second SSCXWC win… This is a sorry state of affairs!
On expecting to win… I’m wary of expecting anything at these sorts of junk shows. I expect nothing but I’ll take what I can get.
