Video of the day… These three in the woods, rallying, jumping, slipping and getting as muddy as possible.
“Peanut butter and chocolate blend perfectly in this tasty bar. Packed with plant protein, chia, and flax seeds you’ll be ready for wherever adventure takes you.” –PROBAR If you’re like me, then time is always of the essence. A typical day is usually packed full, regardless of where it falls on the calendar. There are times when I’ve planned a head and know I’ll be riding and for how long, […]
As much as I’d love do be riding bikes in Southern Utah, or just about any points south; it’s winter here on the Wasatch and there’s one thing that consumes most of my daily thoughts and daydreams. Skiing. Here are a few shots from some of the backcountry tours from earlier this season. My fingers are crossed that come February and March, the Wasatch will attract a few of those […]
The 2014 cyclocross season was quite a treat. I was fortunate to travel a bit more and focus my efforts at a few national events, which opened my eyes and expanded my passion for bike racing; especially cyclocross. As my traditional focus for most of my life has been in mountain bike racing, I’ve found a new, motivating love and passion for cycling, through CX. With each race, comes a […]
I’ve eaten just about everything under the sun when it comes to energy specific products or junk you can grab from the gas station. Most products, specific to cycling or not, have at one point or another worked really well and provided a great bump in energy during a long race or ride. But most products also, in the attempt to replicate the positive bump, have totally let me down. […]
I’ve never considered myself a runner in any way, even though I spend a considerable amount of my time from early fall through late spring on the roads and trails out my back door. I ran track in Jr. High and High School, but it was more a means to cross train for cycling. I don’t always track or Strava my running, mainly because it’s a more of a simplistic […]
Today’s the day. Quite possibly one of the hardest days to get up and get the week started. Daylight savings time over the weekend seemed to throw everything off, completely. Some of you may have slept in, trying to salvage that lost hour. Others, may have stuck with the plan, got up and carried on with the same routine, only to find yourself in desperate need of a nap this […]
CX season is well underway and as always, it’s been a lot of fun for both me and the family. The kids love watching the race because the get to see dad zoom past much more frequently than any mountain bike race. Layla loves to hit up the Kiddy Cross race, just before they send off the A group racers and even though she knows how to ride a pedal […]
Just the other day, a co-worker asked me if I’d been riding my bike much lately. To which I replied, you bet. I actually rode for 4.5 hours before work today. She was a bit surprised to my answer and said “I always wondered if your cycling would suffer or drop off, now that you have three kids.” I told her of course it’s been a bit harder to find […]
I took the afternoon to clear my head after an appointment last week and ended up filming some sections on lower Rush trail. Super fun, lots of flow and rhythm… perfect for an xc bike. It’s a great place to work on your speed to air ratio skills. Most of the jumps are a bit too small for the speed you take into them, so staying low and quick is […]
I like riding bikes. I like maps. I like Typography. Thanks to Strava, I can combine them all.
Yesterday, two powerhouse celebrities came together for one, made for TV, pull at your heart strings, lets get richer, come to Jesus, soon to be forgotten about event. I always assumed it would be a book, some ten years down the road, but the way this wild fire spread over the past five months, the “Interview” seems to be the most brilliant solution for both parties. I think we all […]
