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?

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.

Cyclocross on a Sunday

This past sunday I spent most of the day out on the side of a grassy hill with camera in hand in Wilkesboro, NC. Most of the photos are sitting on my desktop computer in Charlotte as I fly off to Minneapolis. Last night, before I went to sleep very early to wake at 3am, I grabbed two of the shots that seemed to fit…
