From Cycling News: “Cassani said, “Landis is one of the favourites for the Tour de France, along with Basso, Ullrich and Vinokourov”, while Bulbarelli, mistakenly calling Landis a Mormon, also had praise for the American. In an interview with Phonak DS Adriano Baffi, RAI-TV’s Alessandro Fabretti asked Baffi about Phonak at the Giro and he […]

I pre-rode the Sundance race course tonight. All I have to say is wow! After 6 races in the desert, the ICUP finally moves into the Alpine. Sundance is a mini Deer Valley. Tons of tight switchbacks, lots of sustained singletrack climbing, and roller coaster downhills. Tonight there were no ruts, no loose rocks, just […]

Is it really dead?

I read this today. Seems that the race really is going to end. Something about that web page has a sad finality to it. Perhaps others will step up and pick up where Mike has left off… hmm the wheels are turning….. In other news, I am getting a strange vibe that tells me the […]

Low Key

Today was pretty low key. I took the kids to the XC race, watched the start, then bailed. It was windy and cold, so the kids were miserable. I came home and watched the two semi-final NCAA lacrosse games. It brought back good memories of my college lacrosse days. Not much else is going on […]

Off the Bottle?

So latley I have been thinking about ditching the water bottle cages on my mountain bike, and going with the Wingnut Assault fulltime in XC races, loop races and regular training rides. I will stick with the Hyper 2.5 for big long days in the saddle. The Assault is on its way, so when it […]

Moving Forward

I hit some singletrack again today. That was after I went out and pre-rode the Thanksgiving Point race course. 10 miles, 100ft of elevation, and constant turning. I mean constant! It is disorienting. You have no sense of distance, or direction, you just turn and turn on a loose bumpy excuse for singletrack as you […]

The last few days I have been enjoying the local singletrack. A lot of the best trails are dry and ready to go now. Pictures of singletrack are better than words, so enjoy!
