Finally! A podium.

Finally a podium with a third place finish.  This is the first placing this year, and the first while  racing in the Expert/Cat 1 class. The Winter Park #7 race at the top of Mary Jane started out a little wet.  Within 30 seconds on lift to the start of the course the rain started […]

Result from Winter Park #5

Saturday was the 5th race of the Winter Park series with the Crankworx XC race.  This race is a point to point race which starts in Fraser and ends at the Winter Park Base.   The first year they introduced this course I got 2nd place, in Sport class 35-39 age group.   Every year since I […]

Nationals

I went into the Nationals XC race with high hopes.  I felt really good during the  preride and training early in the week.  There is a lot of climbing on the course, but nothing really hard, except the first climb, right at the start. We had two big loops,and a shorter loop which skipped a […]

Winter Park #3, Valley Point to Point

I’m finally getting caught up on my race reports. On Saturday, Jul 11, Winter Park had their third race of the series, the classic Valley Point to Point.  This race starts at the Winter Park Resort Base, and ending in Fraser.  This year however, they added a new mild climb and some  super fun downhill […]

Winter Park #2, Super Loop

I’ve been busy trying to keep up with work, training, and of course keeping this site alive.   I’m going to make this entry quick and describe a couple of highlights from this race. First of all, this was the most fun course yet this season.  It has excellent single track, great climbs and of course […]

MSC #4, Wildflower Rush

[singlepic=28,300,,,center] Here is the long overdue report from the Wildflower Rush, on June 20.  This race was a complete disappointment for me.  I still had fun on the course, but as far as the race went it is not what I had expected.  Traditionally the course is a 10 mile loop which takes me about […]

Front Range 50 Race Report

I ended the Build 1 Phase with the hardest workout of the season, a 50 mile MTB race, the Front Range 50. My expectation where not high.  I knew I would complete the event, but not sure about my finish time.   I figured my per lap time would be about 45 min, putting me about […]

Chalk Creek Stampede, Race #1

Friday I headed out for the first race of the season, the Chalk Creek Stampede in Nathrop CO.  The race was on Saturday which gave time for a pre-ride of the course.  I didn’t need much of a pre-ride since I’ve done this race the past two years.   Not much changes except the strength of […]
