Growing your Comfort Zone

Funny; my last piece started with a plane flight, of a very different kind. I’m starting this tucked into an economy cabin, helmet in a soft bag in my lap, shoes and carry-on neatly stowed above me. I’m on my way to the Hampshire 100. A race I have never done before and which I [...]

Lessons from The Competition

Almost home after a week away. One more plane ride. One more sequence of filing in, sitting down, cramming myself into a seat and descending into a book or phone or conversation until we touch back down. The tires hitting the pavement triggers everyone to pull out their phones and reconnect with the world. Reflexively, [...]

Choices #2-bones

My wife Emily forms profound relationships with her bikes. When she refers to the characteristics of one of hers it with personal pronouns and as if she is referring to a person or member of our family. "She's just so good to me, I can really trust her" or "I just don't like the way [...]

Choices #1 Rubber

This blog as a way to pass on merely race antics is hopefully pretty entertaining but I get a fair number of emails and Facebook messages on a regular basis asking what sort of "X" I use (or used for a specific event), or which gear I ran where. I also get a ton of [...]

peaks

Sitting on the porch after 4 weeks of travel and as many races there's a lot to look back on in a very short period of time. Kind of like one of those whirlwind tours heavy metal bands used to take in the 80s. Only probably more physical exertion (marginally) and less substance abuse (is [...]

CoHuttin’

The Cohutta 100 will always have a special place in my heart. It was my first NUE 100 top 5 (2nd place overall) and started my 2014 season off with an incredible bang. Its very heavy fire road bias and copious climbing make it a very straightforward early season race and the Trailhead Outdoors crew [...]

Farewell Friend

Trick Teeth: The WolfTooth SS Review

Ive been singlespeeding for around 9 years. The first SS I built was a nightmare. one of those slotted drop, quick release wheel, troublemakers that fought every single brake effort by slipping and sliding around. No comparison to my current Pivot LES SS. But the point is Ive been on a fair bit of SS [...]

Truly Gritty

This race season Im going about things a little differently Last season I played sleeper, rode within pace and only made moves when I had to. I gauged my fitness, gauged my strategy, and played things very close to the chest. Ill be very clear and say that this is my racing style. But [...]

Curahee!!!

Flying over Normandy on June 6 1944 American paratroopers watched and waited for the lights near the side doors of their planes to switch from red to green, signaling their time to jump into a life changing breach. "CURAHEE!!" they yelled as they dove into a dark sky thick with mortar fire and metal. [...]
