Captain Nimrod’s Pound-Flail Ale

Worthy is pleased to announce it will be sponsoring the Worthy Worlds Masters Cup at the Cascade Cycling Classic this year, two races dedicated to the irreverent and irreplaceable Chris Hipp, legendary bike racer and computer geek, who died seven years ago.
To honor “Hipp Star’s” passing, Worthy will be brewing a special beer that he would have loved – “Captain Nimrod’s Pound-Flail Ale.” Hipp always believed that in order to pound you had to risk flailing. Without one, you can’t have the other. His way of finding balance in this crazy world.
With the creation of the Worthy World’s Masters Cup, the CCC this year will have more categories, more races, more prize money, more fabulous jerseys, and of course the prospect of more fun and glory.
Men’s 50 plus category will be competing for $3,500, plus the yellow, green and polka dot jerseys. The Men’s 35-39 will be competing for $2,000 and the above jerseys, and the 40 plus will be racing for $3,500 and the usual jerseys. That’s $9,000 in cash prize money, a new high water mark for the CCC masters races. The racing begins on July 22, 2016 and concludes after 4 stages on July 24th.
It’s widely known among Masters Racers that Hipp was the designer of the Captain Nimrod artwork on the jersey of the former juggernaut “Labor Power” masters cycling team, which he also co-founded with Worthington back in The Day.
