Interbike: What Did I Miss?

Somehow I snuck out of going to Interbike this year. While I really missed seeing so many of my bike industry friends, it was a relief to not have to visit Vegas and a trade show! Need your fix of new bike goodness? Here are some of my favorite sources: BikeRumor The Radavist Bike Magazine Urban Velo Bicycle Times Singletracks

2014 Breck Epic: Final Day!

Yesterday was the final stage of racing at the 2014 Breck Epic for Amy Thomas. Catch all of her stage recaps here! It’s really hard to believe today was the last day. While I am relieved to no longer sleep in compression tights and eat boatloads of sugar throughout the day, I am really sad it’s over. This week of riding I will never forget, in part…

2014 Breck Epic: Wheeler Pass

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. It took 5 days but it finally hit me. I am tired. Stage 5, Wheeler Pass, is a deceivingly hard stage. On the course profile map it looks like a giant kidney bean over the Ten Mile Range between Breckenridge and Copper Mountain. At “only” 28 miles and @5000’ climbing, you…

Breck Epic: Keystone Aqueduct

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. Over the hump! Day 4 is a monster loop that brings us from Breckenridge to Keystone and back with a few big ridges in between. Today we rode about 42 miles and 6500′ of climbing and was reminded that “it ain’t called the Breck Epic Tickle Fight”.

2014 Breck Epic: Colorado Trail

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. Day 2 of Breck Epic defines the perfect pairing of ebb and flow. It’s the Colorado Trail stage and that name says it all. If you only have ONE trail to ever ride in Colorado,  ride ANY section of the Colorado Trail. It’s all amazing and you will be rewarded for…

2014 Breck Epic: Pennsylvania Gulch

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. After what seemed like an eternity of waiting for Breck Epic to start, it finally happened. With a record attendance of over 400 racers, the start was definitely a little nerve wracking. One of the cardinal rules of the Breck Epic is “don’t be a dick”. With everyone gunning for good…

Banjo Brothers Tiny Bike Shop Concert Series – June 27th in MN

There a notion, that may seem a bit crazy, that a a company or brand may do something solely to spread the love they have for their passions. A great example of this kind of notion is the Banjo Brothers Tiny Bike Shop Concert Series. What does this have to do about bike bags? Not much. Yet, it may have to do with banjos, bike…

Recap of Interbike 2013

Incase you missed it, last week was Interbike in Las Vegas. While I was there mostly on official business working the booth of Pearl Izumi Custom I did have the opportunity to walk the show room floor early before the masses were let in. Buzz Words of the Show 27.5 It seems that every brand has a 27.5 wheeled mountain bike coming out. Bags Backpacks,…
