Endurance nutrition is awesome. For most of us there are a few items we really like to have in our back pocket during long rides and races. Items we’ve used in the past that have become a must have in our quest for sustained energy. Items that regardless of nutritional value, help us get the job done. Over the years I’ve tried and tested multiple sources of calories aka energy […]

Yesterday I had the opportunity to ride with group of good old friends from the home-town. Years ago a few of these guys took me under their wing and taught me the ropes of road riding, racing and training. I’ve always been partial the mountain bike and my focus is mountain bike racing, but I don’t think I would have ever had the opportunities or success without the hours spent […]

Yesterday morning I took an early class at the Sportsplex in Kaysville, called Sports Conditioning. It’s “a highly energetic workout consisting of drills, relays and polymerics to enhance your athletic abilities.” It’s obviously not the best time of year to step into the gym, or focus on new methods of cross training for most cyclist, but I figured I’m in pretty decent shape all-round and was actually really looking forward […]

There are handfuls of training plans; guidebooks and good folks to talk to that can also help you reach your best potential. Over the years I’ve dabbled in all of the above and found a lot of very interesting workouts, methods and testes that have helped get me to […]

What a difference a month can make. My fitness has continued to get better; the new bike is running like a champ and the mental game is much stronger. I went into last weekends Intermountan Cup race with a few more miles in the legs and crisp new ride. Both seemed to be working together quite well early in the week as I pedaled around the neighborhood earlier in the […]

Late Friday afternoon, the family and I loaded up the car and headed south to sunny St. George to kick off the bike racing season in the first Intermountain Cup event. While in route, my girls fell a sleep so I settled in for a quiet evening entertained by my own thoughts. I would consider myself a pretty speedy driver for the most part, but from time to time there […]

We packed up the family and headed South to St. George for a little sunshine, and time off. SDAY has spent the past few cold winter months pounding the pavement and occasionally the indoor track, in preparation for the St. George Half Marathon. This would be her first Half so she was a bit nervous. I was confident though, that all her hard work would for pay off and she’d […]

Looking back on another amazing season of cycling, I find myself again, in great appreciation for all those who have supported me over the yeas and continued that support for 2010. There were a number of really good events that I was able to attend as an athlete and in support to an or many athletes. There were some new adventures that had and will continue to have a huge […]

Last weekend’s 100K race at Snowbasin proved to be a nice testing ground for this weekends 81 miler, also known as the Park City Point 2 Point. I had put in a pretty intense week of riding and wanted to continue it through the weekend as well as try out a few nutrition options that I’ve been thinking about for P2P. Here are the results. First and foremost, HYDRATION is […]

Coping with burnout is never an easy task. Dealing with it mid season can be even more challenging. Both your physical and mental state seems to deteriorate even faster when the skies are blue and the trails are fresh. Most riders are on form and riding strong while all your buddies are spending non-race weekends out on epic high alpine singletrack. I’ve been there before. When training sessions seem to […]
