On Saturday, May 23rd, SLUG, held its Third Annual SLUG Cat alleycat race through the streets of Salt Lake City. Over 40 riders braved a torrential downpour early in the race, zipping across the city to complete various tasks—from lip-syncing ABBA to helping put together a children’s bike—within the race’s time limit. Winners were announced at Velo City Bags’ storefront on Pierpont Ave., at an after party set to a selection of groovy 45s from DJ Nix Beat and Jesse Stewart.
This year’s SLUG Cat, Presented by New Belgium Brewing, winners were:
Women’s First Place – Jessie Gilmore
Women’s Second Place – Julie Parma
Women’s Third Place – Meredith Lenz
Men’s First Place – Joergen Trepp
Men’s Second Place – Daniel Hanna
