How to lose a bike race.

Race against faster people or, think about the sprint instead of sprinting. I was in a 5 person break last night at the Mt. Tabor series and with 2 to go it was clear we were not getting caught. I was pushing it pretty hard to stay away and when we came into the final […]

Too damn busy…

I like Mark McCormack. He is classy, he races cross and, can win a road sprint. I rode my new mountain bike for 12 hours yesterday. Started out riding through Hillsboro and Forest Grove towards Gale’s creek then turned left onto some power lines and rode what we could of the brutal access road. It […]

Reheers race report. Tragedy.

My mom’s sister passed away early this week. She was in a fatal car accident on her way pick my mom up for a doctors appointment. We were not too close, I have not spoken to her in a few years. Barbara, she looked so much like my mom. I’d really like to fly out […]

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 […]

Hell yeah.

No “rockin’ the baby” here.

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. The leading riders have 4’35″ on the field.” holla! Ate dinner last night with Tony Kic, the Miller kid, Brian […]
