I raced the stage race format of Coconino 250 Oct 5th - 8th. Quite a bit off the back with this blog post but life has been moving fast since then! I initially preferred the concept of the ITT (non-stop race format) over the stage race format (official stopping points on course for the night where the […]

Last weekend I raced Arizona Trail Race 300. For me it wasn't as much a race as a personal adventure. No woman had ever finished it before. It was big, tough and intimidating and finishing looked to be a huge personal challenge. Finishing AZT is no gimme. The short story is I had the race of […]

There is often talk of what it takes to complete a multi-day ultra mountain bike race. Is it fitness? A simple mantra of eat, ride, sleep? Or, something more intangible like mental toughness and the ability to keep going when it gets really tough? Naturally I have my own ideas. In my experience, the #1 […]

I love the Redrock Rampage XC race here in St George. This year was its 16th year running. Before the race I chatted with its promoter Glen Ames. He mentioned maybe it was time to change up the course. I told him no way!! This race is a tradition and you don't mess with traditions. […]

5th time racing at Old Pueblo was as fun as ever. Friday night treated us with a sunset which was the calm before the storm. I spent Friday visiting folks. OP is like a big bike reunion after the winter. So fun to catch up and find out what everyone has planned out for the […]

Kenny Jones and I have been chasing each other around for years, but usually just a bit too far apart to converse.  I've long admired his grit, quiet poise, and downright bike killing abilities.  Call it a man crush if you must.  Can you blame me? So after the Park City shindig we cooked up […]

This decompression is going to take awhile. Generally speaking I have not been interested in racing since Moab last year - how do you top stars and bars? - and have been moving back to basics, what started it all in the first place, using the mountain bike as a vehicle to roam the best […]
