This guy is my trainer. There, I said it. Cats out of the bag. Love him or hate him, he has done a great job of pushing me hard to perform as mediocre as ever! Now that you all know, you should feel free to heckle me for having a coach and 3 power meters on each bike.

Any one want to buy an SRM? Got to cover my pre-race pasta expenses in Europe.

Oh yeah, bought the flight to Belgium. Staying at Peter and Stijn’s house in Westerlo. Got a full schedule and contracts set up. Adam just got back from Europe where he did a few races.

attack, attack, attack! For 69th place.


My long lost twin is getting into some bad shit:


I love me some urban fixed gear-ery but… thank you so much bummer life for keeping me up to date on this madness:



Another thing about Belgium. The Euros take the bike game so seriously! Was reading an article about the latest World Cup selection. It is a huge honor to make the World Cup team, let alone get selected as an alternate! Tom van den Bosch getting big props for being selected by Belgian national coach Rudy de Bie to “be prepared to race but, probably not actually race” a World Cup. (I mean, Nys wins races with dislocated fingers and stitches in his forhead, those dudes are not going to miss a WB, no way.) He gets a photo in the news and everything.

US CX needs that. Gullickson (USACycling?) should be putting out press releases before every World cup. Whip up some drama and interest. I mean, those of us invested in cyclocross know Trebon and Powers will go and race some Euro action but, the lay person bike rider does not grasp the significance of racing a World Cup. (not that I’ve done it any justice)

Maybe they already do and I have not noticed… Rambling.

  1. Jazzy? Is that “jazz hands” jazzy or Coltrane jazzy?

  2. People hate me? Don’t they have better things to do?

    And seriously, how many people get sidelined by leprosy like you did?

  3. Does USA cycling do anything but promote coaches with bags full of syringes and ‘therapeutic’ medical products?

  4. I’m just still trying to figure out if the knuckle tats are for real or if they were photoshopped in by BikeSnobNYC

  7. Ruben is sick. Fixed gear freestyle has nothing on BMX! I have to agree with BSNYC on this one. Thanks for posting!
