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 [...]

Choices #3-Grip it to rip it!!

One of the coolest things about the cycling industry is its relatively small size. Behind nearly every product is a hand you can shake and companies that seem large in our industry are typically only family driven affairs kept productive and successful by the hard work of their owners. ESI Grips is one of those [...]

Adventure

Publisher William Feather said "one way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure." When I found out I was nominated for Blue Ridge Outdoors "Adventurer of the Year" a few months ago I immediately began to toss around in my head what that really meant. And still [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
