  • ‘Cross Season
    • September 15th- Brektobercross7th in Cat 4/ 35+
    • 9/29- Boulder CX #1 at CU Research Park– 11th place. I arrived about 4 minutes before the start. Liz pinned my # on as I rolled to the start area… missed my very first call-up, but still got to go up near the front. Had a very solid race on a technical course, but a crash on the last lap allowed two riders by… knocking me out of the top 10.
    • 10/13- Gunnison– 3rd place. A ‘breakthrough’ race for me. Although the field was small, I got in the lead group early and the three of us put a good amount of time on the chasing riders. I took my turn at the front for a lap or two, but otherwise was trying to save up some energy for the final lap and a shot at the victory. Unfortunately, along with the inevitable fatigue, came a lapse in focus and I crashed on an off-camber leafy section, and Trent and Dave were gone. Fortunately I had built enough time over the others and I held on for 3rd place.
      • As I’d driven several hours to get here, I decided to also compete in the Cat 4 race an hour later. Thing went about the same as earlier, and I was sitting in 3rd when we came off the grass and into a high speed paved section and suddenly I was sliding on my ass. I got up quickly to inspect the bike, and noticed about half of the rear tire had come off of the wheel. Surprisingly, it popped right back on, but 3 guys has slipped past in the meantime. I hammered to get back on to that group, but had little left in the tank at the end for a sprint, and had to settle for 7th.
    • 10/20- Boulder CX #2 at Interlocken- 15th Place. A huge field of about 100 guys on the start, and I was in 3rd at the first corner. I was sitting on Trent’s wheel (new friend from Gunny) when I ran the barriers and remounted on an uphill section, only to find my rear tire hanging off again. It took a bit longer to get it back on and I didn’t really trust it. I rode cautiously from there and was disappointed despite finishing 15th.
    • 11/3- Redline Cup at Boulder Reservoir– DNF. After my 3rd rolled tire in a row, I left the course and went straight to Colorado Multisport, where Aaron and Ryan spent the afternoon re-gluing my tires, which have stayed put ever since. Thanks guys!
    • 11/4- Boulder Cup at Platts Park/ Southern Hills Middle School 35th place. This was a UCI race with over 100 guys in my category (they combined the Cat 4 35 + with the Cat 4’s). With a start position of about 70, I was pretty pleased to move up into the front 3rd by the end.
    • 11/17- Pikes Peak Supercross in Colorado Springs– 10th place. Not the friendliest course for my Spot/ Carbon Drive Single Speed bike, but I hung tough and made a solid pass at the end to claw into the top ten.
    • 11/24- Boulder CX#3 at Louisville Rec Center 12th place. My first taste of ‘true’ ‘cross weather… about 30 degrees at the start with snow on the course, which started melting about halfway through giving way to slick mud! Another course that did not play to my single-speed, but a solid day with no tire issues… so that’s always nice.
    • 11/25- Foothills Cross in Littleton- 8th place. Another snowy, muddy track that required a lot more bike handling skills than any previous race this season. I spent most of the race sitting on David’s wheel (other friend from Gunny race), alternating between relaxing some on the techy sections, and doing all I could to stay with him whenever the course opened up and he turned on the power. At the end I couldn’t quite catch David, but I did hold off a hard charging Kyle, who’d won last week’s race in C. Springs.
    • 12/2- Red Rocks Velo in Morrison- 6th Place. Learned from last week that I was more comfortable on technical terrain that David, so went hard on the paved climb before the single track section to get just ahead of him. Came out of that section in the top 3, while David and others were about 50 yards back. In the middle of the race, sitting comfortably in 2nd, I thought about making my move, but as a “rookie” opted to sit in as I’m still not sure when/ if I’ll blow up before the end. We got caught by a small group of 4 who passed David and bridged up, and we battled it out to the end where I settled for 6th place.
    • 12/9- State Championships in Lyons- 4th place. After a few days of snow, I was expecting to be running for much of the race, but was pleased to see the course was well packed and super fun. Got a call-up to the 2nd row and head a solid start. Made a big move mid-way to join two others at what I thought was the front, but later found out that one guy got away and soloed to victory. Had a great battle with the other two guys, but ended up 4th after crashing on the last barrier on the last lap. Overall, I felt fantastic the whole race and it was easily my best of the season.

I don’t know exactly how/where it fits on this page, but I’m sure there are readers here who might be interested in the new type of endurance event we are organizing.

“Extra Mile Endurathon” (EME), Boulder/CO, May 30.

A group of ~25 will walk on a ~4 mile loop in downtown Boulder till only 1 walker is still moving (all others dropped), the winner, who gets $1,000. The last 4 qualify for the EME World Championship in Las Vegas, where the winner gets $10,000. Short stops for food & drink etc., no sleep breaks. No entry fee, charity event.

Several 100 mile runners already entered, as it’s very good training for going through one or more nights, for being on your feet for a long time.

Participants may also choose to just walk as long as they want.

Get all details at

Happy walking,

RE: Haystack TT pics: several of your team mates did the TT this past Sunday. I have a number of images I captured and posted on my website (see link below) of your riders. Thought this might be of interest. Thanks.
