Im a gravel racer now Part 2 (the DIRT)

  Early to bed, early to shred! Waking up in a new place with the prospect of 200 miles of unknown is definitely a little daunting. But like the racing itself you compartmentalize things in order to do them successfully without. Ring overwhelmed. Wake up, check. Breakfast needed to be a little more substantial than [...]

Im a gravel racer now! Part 1

As soon as I stand up out of my appropriately cramped airline seat I can feel the Midwest charm. I cruise to get my bag out of the overhead bin and meet smiling suntanned faces decked in turquoise every jewelry. I'm a born and bread southern man but soon as I open my mouth Ive [...]

Just like home…but BETTER!!!!

Living now in Georgia Emily and I have had to make a lot of changes. Where we get groceries, who works on our cars, what dentist we use, regular riding and training routes; all of the stuff you start to take for granted when you aren't moving around all the time. Since I had done [...]

La Ruta Recap

So La Ruta de Los Conquistadores. The "hardest bike race in the world" they say. I haven't done all the bike races, so I cant comment on that. But if you like your bike games with a extra side of adventure then La Ruta needs to be on your list. I absolutely had a hard [...]

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 #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 [...]

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. [...]

Trust The Struggle

  Reading over Julian Kyer's journal article on velonews I couldn't help but empathize. Kyer's words aren't overly poetic but the feeling it gets across ┬áis big. Its a feeling Ive had a lot this winter. In August I moved to Cumberland Gap TN to be with Emily where she is finishing up [...]
