cart-robot-graph-pointAttention! Attention! Calling all Racers!

Each year we put on our thinking caps and engage in perilous deeds–one part math, one part magicky-magic–to assess the state of mayhem in the CHIditarod kingdom.

More than 30% of racers in the 2016 CHIditarod race participated in a post-race survey designed to assess racer satisfaction, patterns in cocktail preferences, and what kinds of sabotage and other dastardly shenanigans went down on the mean streets of Wicker Park/Ukrainian Village that chilly day in March.

In 2016…

  • Nearly 60% of our racers were CHIditarod veterans.
  • The average age of our racers remained constant at 32. Our anti-aging regimen is just stellar. Feel how soft our skin is!
  • For the first time, we had slightly more male-identified than female-identified participants.
  • Cart bondage kept it’s title as “Most Popular Form of Sabotage.” Creative/Happy sabotage–in the form of errant stickers, free booze, and stencils of David Bowie–came in strong in second place.
  • A new form of sabotage emerged, which we have called Creative Stalling. In short, be aware that your competitors may try to slow you down by engaging in a musical review in front of your cart or inviting you into a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. STAY SHARP!
