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 [...]

24 Hours in the Old Pueblo

I occupy a funny space in the cycling world. Having been described as "pro singlespeeder" by some; the role I play in the cycling world may be B list credits at best. Any attempt to qualify and classify what I call "a days work of fun and games" ultimately comes up short of the actuality [...]

The “end of season”

While the Fools Gold 100 was my last NUE series race for the year its always apparent to me that there isnt really an "end" to this season. I will take some active time fully off the bike following LaRuta in November but really as soon as the Endurance racing calendar gets thin the endurance [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

Predictable

The big blue hole in the sky up in the VA cycling scene is wash with Pantani ride rumors and postulations. The Pantani ride has grown even in the time I've been involved. It changed from a thing a couple folks did in February as a spring throwdown ritual and has moved up to race-ride [...]
