the morning after Nobeyama cyclocross race.

In lieu of a proper blog post, I’ve been dumping tons of photos onto Flickr and I finally learned how to edit and create decent video content; which I am putting up on my YouTube account. I’m in Japan. I’ve been so busy experiencing everything and trying to stay focused. Snapping photos of everything like… [...]

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 [...]

Heavy day today. (ahem, last Saturday)

(I need to post these a little more timely.) Whoa. Feeling super emotional today! And, fittingly the Portland weather obliges. Rain, grey and rain. I am also completely freaked out about the trip to Japan. Wrapping up the details, making it through the UEF open house, getting the work schedule dialed, paying the bills and [...]

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 [...]

informative videos: Japan on my mind.

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 [...]
