August 18, 2017

The mountain views here in Summit County, Colorado really are breathtaking. Today, I got to experience some of the best views that these mountains have to offer. It was a long day, it was a difficult ride, and I gained a lot more tenacity. 

Around 3 a.m. I woke up...

I know I've mentioned it, but I love riding on single track in the high country. Today's course featured some amazing trails, exposure, steep climbs and fast descents. With a huge smile on my face, I rode my own race and enjoyed the process.

Fat biking, a relatively new side of our beloved sport of cycling, should definitely not be overlooked. 

Fat bike season is in full swing, and I have been enjoying every freezing experience. From racing to everyday training, it has been a major focal point for me t...

Some days in your life that are just your favorites.  My first time on the White Rim trail outside of Moab was one of these days. The White Rim has beaten me on two occasions, but on this particular day, I'd like to think I won.

It was early October of 2014, and I had b...
