I entered the Bear Springs XC today feeling upbeat! I was excited to start racing again. I started off well, heading into the first single track section in 4th position. Got through a few potential bottleneck sections (the “run-up” and, the “fallen bushes”) where I wanted to be ahead of the mayhem and I tried [...]
No “rockin’ the baby” here.
I’ve been fighting the cold Ira had for the last week or so and I finally succumbed Saturday night. We had an epic mountain bike ride planned for Sunday and even though I should have stayed in bed, I went anyways. Oh, do I feel like crap. I’ve never taken nyquil or dayquil before and [...]
Keeping tabs on the Cycling news live Tour de Georgia coverage: “13:01 EDT 90.9km/100.5km to go Ollerenshaw has also attacked the break and is currently between the three leaders and the rest of the break.

Serious. I totally forgot to put my booties AND my chamois creme on this morning. I should have known I was doomed. Damn! I met up with Doug, Timmy, Dan from hardCorvallis and Carl H. at Stumptown and we started a ride up Saltzman and out the West hills. Damn it, I have not been [...]
Belgian ex-cyclocross pro Ben Berden exclaims “keep lying!”. Doh. The article does not mention why his suspension was lengthened. And, he’s got a contract waiting the second his suspension is up. With all the recent examples: Filip Mierhage, David Millar, Berden, it is making more and more sense to dope, get super fast, get some [...]
Mark Blackwelder won the Kings Valley road race today. Our new teammate Kim Mullen placed 12th in the women’s race at King’s Valley. Robin Calver got 4th in the cat 4 race too! Wow, a team victory gets me all pumped! I think I may have a new cat 2 teammate racing with me soon. [...]
