I didn’t race the Rampage. I was in full on mom/coach mode. I’m not so social in racer mode (eh Chad?;-) so it was fun to chat with everybody and get to watch the races while in mom/coach mode. There were 35 kids in the 9 and unders class!! I think it was the largest […]
I’m tired but wired. I can’t think in a straight line but my head is buzzing with random thoughts. OP was good to me this year. Not so much for Dave. He’ll blog his story later perhaps. I finished first female solo single speed with 16 laps. At 16 mile laps that adds up to 256 miles which is […]
Make no mistake: the TU route is a monster. With limited time, knowing storms were coming in quick, I gave it what I had left for ’08. Somehow, after 242 miles and 32,000′ climbing, it still feels like a whopper of a ride. And…I only just started the really fun stuff. The late addition of […]

Payson, AZ is smack dab in the middle of my old stomping grounds. Way back when – before I rode bicycles in earnest (think disco and polyester) – I lived on the NE side of the Phoenix metro blob and escaped to the Tonto national forest on a weekly basis, sometimes to the 4 Peaks […]
Just home. Good times were had. Dave came 2nd and I came 2nd – both very different paths to the same result. Here is the scoop from Cycling News.
I love my Siren SS. The bike feels as good and natural as anything I’ve ever ridden. Bike and rider blur on this steed. Yet, racing it in a geared class is a losing proposition. If there’s one thing I learned racing TransRockies on a SS, it’s that going with one gear is a major […]
Lots of riding was done the past 4 days just up the road from us. A 4 day stage race at BrianHead drew some fast riders. Maybe payouts really do attract riders? Top 3 of Elite Men’s and Elite Women’s Pro field will have equal pay: Elite Payout as follows: Elite Men’s Top 5 Payout: […]
