Airborne Cyclocross Bike

Review: 2011 Airborne Delta CX

…lie, the Airborne Delta CX was the most exciting part of becoming a member of the Airborne Flight Crew this past spring.

2014 Breck Epic: Circumnavigation of Mount Guyot

s of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. Three down, three to go!! While the major goal of this week is to get through all 6 stages, there was one stage in particular that has caused some PTSD since 2010. As the name suggests, the Circumnavigation of Mount Guyot is not the shortest point from A to B. It’s a BIG day, lots of steep, unrideable (for most of us) climbing, with some of the gnarliest technical descents in the county. On fresh legs, these tra…

…hope my readers can recognize why and this Motivational Monday (on Tuesday) reaches folks where it matters.
