The true difficulty of this race continues to manifest itself. I have progressivley felt worse each day since I finished. This morning was no exception. Despite riding about 70% of the course before the race, and having a very good idea of what this event was all about, I was still greeted by unexpected challenges […]

E100-Initial Thoughts

Wow. Where to begin? The E100 was an epic day in the saddle. Lots of different emotions all framed around climbing, descending, rain, hail, wind, heat, flat tires, sore muscles, trees, high mountains, climbing–wait did I mention that already? Yeah, there was climbing. In the end it took me 13 hours. Perhaps a little slower […]

I managed to get out and dodge the rolling thunder storms to get a short ride in. It was a nice spin just after a small cloudburst. The temps were cool, and the trails nice and wet. Perfect. Tomorrow’s Wednesday Night series race at Soldier Hollow is a biathalon. It consists of a 1 mile […]

Keith snapped this photo when we were up on the Loop. This is the photo I ended up with, which I also posted in yesterday’s post. Keith had a race of his own yesterday. It was pretty funny being at the top as he nervously waited for the peleton as his wife rushed to hospital […]
