I just got back from China and am catching up on what I missed during the week I was out of town. Love or hate Facebook, when you are up all night with jetlag it is very convenient for catching up with what your pals (that are on FB) have been getting up to. I [...]
This is easily my favorite behind the barriers. Some of my favorite people are in it and some of my favorite races too. – Man, that deleted scene where Thufir kills himself? That is good stuff. – I mean really?
There have been cyclocross races in the summer for as long as I’ve been racing cx. And every season people start complaining about how it is not real cx, the races are earlier and earlier every year and how is it ruining the cx season, ruining road season and they are going to protest the [...]

I can’t breathe and it is beautiful. This is my third year coming to Japan, staying at Yatsugatake bicycle studio in Minamimaki village on the Japanese Alps. I am here to race cyclocross and am doing rides people write stories about. I am a part of something special here, this family of cyclists, racers, photographers, [...]
Disc brakes. In cyclocross. OMG! People seem to have forgotten that disc brakes have been available on cyclocross bikes since the early 2000s (and earlier on custom built cx bikes). The majority of disc brake equipped cx bikes on the market are still using the same mechanical caliper that was available back in 2002. So, [...]
