“UH….MAZE…..ING!” she drawled, eyes glued to the man catching air as he pulled a 720. Unconventional, as he let the bike spin round him, but the air you need to make that happen on a half pipe is awe inspiring.

Of course, it wasn’t her first time at the trials. She’d actually taught him how to do it – find the sweet spot in the Freestyle course. She’d not had any photographers around when she was catching air. Photographers were advised to only shoot the male atheletes.

“Keep the girls in swimsuits; sex sells,” tournament sponsors sneered.

They totally missed out.


Written for: Week 27 – 100 Word Wednesday

Usually you see 720’s on skateboards, scooters, skis, or snowboards — but a bike….wowza. Wanna see a sweet 720 in action? Check out the video from You Tube:

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use – Links provided 🙂
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂
