I will be in Virginia for a few days visiting the in-laws. In the meantime, I highly suggest using the Great Divide Race to occupy your mind. Incredible stuff coming out of that one. Some Aaron Teasdale photos from the the first day or two. The Leaderboard Jon Hurley crossing a washed out road. Photo […]

The E12: In Summary

Posted by on Jun 25, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Bob captured my sentiment well… The 12 Hours of Endurance started well. The laps were ticking by, feeling easy and fast. By midday I was feeling immortal, just motoring along.

Maybe the Grand Loop and the Great Divide are doing the talking. Or perhaps it is the new toy I got, in the form of National Geographic TOPO, maybe it is both…but the imagination is running rampant, and so are the possibilities of what can be done on a bicycle. But I am getting ahead […]

I got out and scouted a bit for the Wasatch Classic route Saturday. I wanted to connect the dots from the start, all the way to Battle Creek Canyon. There is a some very nice singletrack that traverses the front of Big Baldy, and then plunges down through thick trees into Battle Creek. Some portions […]

The Wasatch Classic route is taking shape. I’ve been staring at the computer screen, flying over topo maps, importing old GPS tracks, and drawing beta routes for hours. It is a ton of fun! Here is a little sneak peak at what I am considering for the “southern half” of the route. For reference, this […]
