Race Recap: NC CX Charlotte (Humble Pie)

Prep was solid into this race. Hitting about 90% of my training for the two weeks leading into the event. Could I have been at 100%? I’m sure, but I’m not a pro and I do have a life to live.

Race Recap: NC CX Statesville

My words are becoming to mimic a broken record. Lacking or should I say SLACKING off my beautiful training plan. Lots of time in the car, only a handful of bike rides between the Boone Cyclocross race 2 weeks prior and that was also a joke. Does it sound like I’m setting you up for a big let down of a result? Because I’m not….

Race Prep: NC CX Boone-Town Throw Down

In fashion from this past week’s race prep of Lion’s Roar here is my “get super excited” pre-race report. I feel more prepared than last week, and that is mostly because I raced last week. I have been focusing on stretching, more back/core work and such so my ass doesn’t lock up on me again. Tomorrow during openers I plan on doing a bunch of…

Race Prep: Lion’s Roar Cyclocross Race

I’m not prepared. I’m back on my schedule from coach to a crossed t and dotted i, but I’m not ready as I fell off the back. The whirlwind of September and October bit my ass hard. Throwing a lot of hard work from this summer out the window, but life is what it is and I’m busting my ass now to catch back on….

Race Morning: SpartanCross

Headed down to Spartanburg, SC for a training race this morning. Many thoughts running in my head, and yet nothing substantial to type out here. Unprepared, rain, mud, coffee, prep, switched my brakes, hope I don’t endo. Meeting new teammates and bonding with my brother like, George. Here’s to the 2nd race of my season, more unprepared than the first!

2012 Burn 24 Hour Race Recap

The secret of discipline is motivation. When a man is sufficiently motivated, discipline will take care of itself. -Alexander Paterson Every race you do, you must take away something from it. Learn, develop and strive to be that much better the next time. Often the fight you are picking is with yourself. To be a better rider, a better person. Pre-Ride Last Friday I went…

North Meck CX #2 Race Report

This past week was my first real cyclocross race of the season. There I said it. With all of the last minute traveling, work and now working on landing a new job I simply have not put as much effort as I thought I would in to cyclocross this fall. The race was at North Meck Park in Huntersville, NC. What is super unique about…
