Ride The Divide (Review)

Posted by on Sep 29, 2010 in Bike, Video | 4 Comments

I finally had a chance to see Ride the Divide. In a word? Fantastic. In more words? Moving, funny, inspiring. Actually, the film was surprisingly funny—in an endearing, likable way. It’s also very insightful. Having ridden in a few endurance races, I found myself reliving the emotional and physical gauntlet that those types of events […]

The Winter Difference

Posted by on Sep 27, 2010 in Bike, Ski | 2 Comments

Winter is still a few months away. Thankfully. I’m still enjoying the bike and the sunshine and the heat. It’s been a warm September. With the 24 Hours of Moab fast approaching, and the cyclocross experiment getting underway, I find myself still engaged in that competitive mindset that drove me to near insanity during the spring and […]

Wherein I ‘Cross Talk

Posted by on Sep 24, 2010 in Bike, Races | 3 Comments

Have you ever watched one of those cable news political talk shows? Of course you have. And afterward, if it’s an episode where 3 or 4 people are all brought in as a “panel”, then you probably had a headache. Or, at the very least, had no idea what anyone was trying to say. Because […]

Entry Level

I’ve written repeatedly about my foray into cyclocross recently. However, as of this moment, that foray is yet to actually happen. That is, I’ve not raced yet. I’ve been riding my ‘cross bike* a lot. I’ve even been doing intervals and run-ups. I’m registered for the famed Sugarhouse Cross Clinic. And tonight, I’ll actually race. […]

History Lesson

“You’ll want to go out hard.” “Yeah?” “Yeah. Otherwise you’ll end up surrounded, battling for space. And that’s when guys go down. And you don’t want to go down at the start of a 200 man race.” “Go out hard then?” “Really hard.” And so I did. I ran as fast as I’ve ever run. […]

Cross on Cross

Posted by on Sep 15, 2010 in Bike | 11 Comments

I’ve never ridden in a cyclocross race. I know very little about the nuances of the sport. Nevertheless, I am excited to dive into that world. But I’ve noticed a few oddities that need to be addressed. Forgive my ignorance, but ‘cross seems to be an extremely finicky game. Tires have to be set up […]

Shifting Gears

Posted by on Sep 13, 2010 in Bike, Ski | 2 Comments

I find it disconcerting how quickly normal life can become a distant and foreign idea after only a few days of hotel and convention center living. It seems especially so when on the heels of a highly anticipated, physically and emotionally taxing event, as was the Point 2 Point. The good news is that I […]
