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 […]

Last weekend we earned matching jerseys. 24 hour solo single speed national championship jerseys, that is. This one has been a long time in the making.  As recent as 3 years ago I thought riding a SS was a freaky fringe thing - as all non single speeders do.  After bombing out of Moab in […]

KMC is a course of contrasts.  Lots of singletrack.  Wide open desert country, Vermillion cliff backdrops.  Miles and miles of alpine deep forests.  A recovering burn area.  Grand Canyon views.  And, this year:  an alternate option to go 200 miles instead of the tried and true 130 option. Which do you think we chose?  Right...it's […]

When I did the Grand Loop in '07 it was a completely consuming affair.  Everything about it was so new, so foreign, so promising, so freightening...I was green to multi-day self-supported racing (still am, really).  Having that first one in the books removed much of the unknown about the event this time. By far, Grand Loop […]

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 […]
