This year, the beerdos from Fort Collins gathered an odd-ball assortment of artists, with varying knowledge and interest in bike racing, to experience the USA Pro Challenge first hand, traveling by van, through the Rocky Mountains.
|Stevil Kinevil brings a lifetime of intoxicating bike racing knowledge, pranks, shenanigans, and Budweiser.|
|The friendly New Belgium Beer kidz asked Chump, the famous pedal-pushing curmudgeon monkey, to park his cruiser and hop into the van. Curiously, he gave his seat to 'tooner pal, R. Lootine, who has not been spotted out of his neighborhood in three years.|
|Artist and bike novice SuperVelma brings clever embroidery and quick wit to the adventure.|
We are traveling in the official New Belgium Brewing van, previously home of the carnies during the Tour de Fat. For this 7 day trip, the van is stocked with bikes and cases of beer.
|Our skilled driver and surrogate father-figure is the talented ball-paddler and New Belgium man about town, Mr. Bussman.|
None of us knows what we are expected to do while on this tour... or, if there is any expectation.
So, we help give away beer, from the back of a van, in some of the most scenic places in the world.
Sometimes we blog about stuff.
Since Residue Comics does not have a twitter account or smartphone, and this blog was set-up as a comics archive, the comics you read here will have been added later, but dated to reflect the time they were conceived (based on notes, scribbles, dribbles, smudges, pains, photos, scrapes, and foggy memories).
No regard will be paid to space or time.
Most accounts are fictional, unless proven otherwise.
We'll be in the great state of Colorado till the end of the race.
Till next time, stay in the moment, and enjoy analog.

He had "marketing" in his official job title, so I expected the tour guide from New Belgium Brewing to be decked in office casual Friday gear, and overly happy to be away from his cubicle. But Mr. Bussmann proved to be a very interesting guy with admirable skills in paddle ball, juggling, and he's even a graduate of clown school. Pretty cool.
A clown was spotted in Aspen the next day.
Bussmann was pretty happy about that.
