Is it odd that even looking at a map with the Wasatch Classic route on it that I become somewhat emotional? I think that the route itself has come to represent what I love about the Wasatch Mountains. Their size and rugged demeanor, their accessibility and vast network of trails and roads, and their beauty […]

El Classico de Wasatch

Posted by on Jun 23, 2009 in Bike, Wasatch | 8 Comments

The Wasatch Classic is Saturday. And while I am certain you will be in attendance, I wanted to take this opportunity to berate and cajole and manipulate any of you that are considering sleeping in on Saturday, to do otherwise.

The American Mountain Classic has been canceled. Which means that I now have a gaping hole staring blankly back at me. To be honest, I had fears about the Classic being shelved.

The rain has fallen intermittently this week. Sometimes in violent outbursts, and other times as a lazy drizzle. There have been pockets of vibrant sunshine, the light breaking through the clouds causing the still wet grass and trees to twinkle and glisten. Surrounding the valley have been constant and threatening storms, deep and purple. The […]

I am excited to announce that I have teamed up with Princeton Tec, who have been a lighting sponsor of  mine for the last few years, to help raise money for the Team Fatty Livestrong Challenge.  The formula is simple: Every $5 you donate earns you one raffle ticket.  Donating is extremely easy and secure.  […]

Tree Dodging

A dark wall approached from the west, purple and threatening. Flashes of lightening illuminated its massive interior. The wind picked up and the rain started to fall. It fell sporadically for a few moments, deflecting off of tree branches and rooftops before finally thumping into the ground. Within minutes a gale-force wind was howling through […]
