Who knew Willow Koerber was such a hippie?!

I did not. But I love it. Her touchy-feely dialogues on her website echo my similar emotional sentiments without my self-aware approach. Deep down, secretly, I am a big hippie. I don’t have any crystals or anything. But, I hella feel things. And I approve of stripper heels. HELLA. I can’t get enough of Hennie […]

Finding motivation.

I’m sitting indoors at PBS-UEF watching Paris-Nice on Versus. Fielding phone calls and text messages about results from the early season Oregon road series this (last Sunday) morning. I’m super proud! Really genuinely proud. Which makes me reflect on where I am at right now. I’m trying to discover the drive again myself. Trying to […]

Event tonight in Silver Lake, Los Angeles!

I am still on Japan time and feel completely screwed up. It is like 16 hours in the future so, I already feel like it is Saturday afternoon. I’m hitting this up tonight!! Gonna mash around on cyclocross tubulars and tons of prototype Shimano and Independent Fabrication gear, probably wear my new Castelli custom skinsuit […]

Re: Embrocation choices

I figure I should chime in on this one. There is an email thread on the OBRA mailing list that I caught this morning: On Wed, Oct 27, 2010 at 2:56 PMI am confused about why anyone would want to use embrocation? Why not just wear tights or leg/knee warmers? Your legs would actually be […]

mid CX season. PBS open house! Japan bound!

I think…… I think I am taking the weekend OFF! I’m 4th in the Cross Crusade overall standings but, I think I need to skip it tomorrow to prepare for the trip to Japan. Check out the photo! I’m just cracking up on the first lap! The open house last night was off the hook! […]

racing and culture DUMP.

yeah yeah yeah, I’ve been having a rough go of it this season. Not looking for “poor molly!” sympathy but, if anything looking to vent and turn my scene around. The 2 most common phrases out of my mouth are “I’m so fucking tired.” and “I’m so fucking busy.” So, the insanity is not new […]

Cyclocross season cancelled!

Dude. Seriously. For me, yes. I am close to cracking and I can’t keep up this pace anymore. I’ll consider it a big success if I can even find the time to show up and start more cyclocross races this fall, let alone try to have anything resembling good results this season. I’m at peace […]

Loving cycling, loving my team boys. still like auto tune, sorry.

First, I’ve noticed a LOT of sick music coming from some awesome ladies. I hope the rest of Ms. Dynamite and Maya’s albums are as good as these singles!! WTF, take me to the future!! It is like I am on Arrakis and high on Spice! And is not Katy B. a dead ringer for […]

so busy this week. not a rider.

The last couple of weeks have been insane for me! Work, sleep, work, sleep. FML means: fuckmylife. Yeah, there are reasons I wake up and don’t want to get out of bed, holy crap I am slammed! In a beautiful yet, time consuming way. The Portland Bicycle Studio is busy, the Veloshop is jamming and […]

It is not about unwritten gentlemanly rules.

It is about respect. Respect for your competitors and particularly your rivals. Respecting them with your actions to say: “I know you have prepared as long and hard for this as I have, I’m not going to take this cheap advantage of you. I want to beat you fairly.” …unless you enjoy playing the role […]
