Rio2016 Road Race

As Chickenfox cycling technology advances, so do the events! Using their tails and bodies to balance, the unicycling athletes reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, making the 150 mile road race very exciting… but very long.

By the end of the event, most of the racers are ready for a three-day nap, which they also undertake in a competitive fashion.

After years of trying to play with Hockey sticks and leg and nose attachments, Chickenfoxes finally decided to tape up their tails and use them in this competitive team sport. Smacking the puck around with their tails has actually proved much more accurate than any of their previous attempts.

(I got confused while I was painting and accidentally wrote Freestyle Skiing instead of Alpine Skiing. So have two “Freestyle” skiing Chickenfoxes)

Chickenfoxes who ski competitively sometimes wear outfits that increase their speeds by covering their tails, which usually cause air friction that slows them down.
