…e any more – you have to get up too dang early. But I’m up and on my way to N. Wilkesboro, NC for the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek to race in the female duo category with my awesome partner, Arleigh Jenkins (brainchild of em:pwr cycling) and my “pit crew” Shelley with me.

Race Report: 2013 6 Hours of Warrior Creek

This was the fourth year of testing my metal against the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek. Each year as half of a women’s duo, my partner Melissa has always been the ringer for us and I wanted to be able to pull my half of the race as strong as she could. Originally, this race was supposed to be a tuning race for the Burn 24 in late May. As plans have changed, boxes are being packed and I realized this would be my last race in the southeast it bec…

6 Hours of Warrior Creek Race Prep

…ing is back as part of my life like it was prior to my bike accident in October. Training and prep work done for Warrior Creek wasn’t as swell as I had hoped.  The weekends I hoped to pre-ride the course, or simply ride in the mountains it was either snowing or pouring down rain.   There is no pre-ride of the course until the first lap this Saturday, there is no checking tire selection, pressure or single speed gear.   Everything I would re…

Review: Buffalo Creek Mountain Biking

Back in mid-July, Emily and I finally made the quick trip to Buffalo Creek for some mountain biking. This trail system has a lot of hype around it and within a few miles of our route I realized why. Where is Buffalo Creek? Buffalo Creek, Colorado, is about an hour southwest of Denver proper according to Google.

Testing Out DZ Nuts at 6 Hours of Warrior Creek

This past Saturday I suited up for a 6 hour mountain bike race.  I haven’t been able to get on the bike that often lately, especially the mountain bike.  The course was found in Wilkesboro, NC, and was a rather hilly course.  One thing to know about where I am from (Charlotte, NC) does not have hills, so this race was going to be the awakening. When I suited up, I did something that I tell all customers not to do – I put on a brand n…
