This is why I get out of bed at 4:30AM on a weekday

One of the best days of the year in the Wasatch Backcountry. Chad, Justin, Scott, Me.  Up to the Black Knob, dropped in the north side, over to Cardiac, then back over to Black Knob down Little Superior.

Thanks Chad for putting in the skin track.

Dr. Dre and Me

Just Dr. Dre and me on the ride today.  I could listen to him tell stories all day.  A postcard from the Altar.

"This Town Is Getting Too Rough For Me"

The Utah County lunch ride crew is getting too fast.  Lunch rides are now lunch races.  I love it and I hate it.

By the way, I'm serious about this bus thing.  Leave a comment if you want to pitch in and be part owner of the cycling bus.  Maybe we could get it together in time for the Crusher race?

ICUP #1 2012- Desert Rampage

ICUP #1 - Desert Rampage was Saturday.  The conditions couldn't have been any better.  60's, sunny, no wind.

Rachelle and I left the kids at home and drove down Friday after work.  So nice to road trip it with my wife.  She brought her knitting and a comfy chair and hung out in the sun while I raced.  And she executed a flawless handup of CR333 for my final lap.

I lined up with the 40+ Expert category.  I think those salty dogs are some of the fastest guys I've raced against.  I didn't have the best race but it wasn't terrible.  Laps 1and 2 I couldn't get myself to go super hard but by lap 3 I felt great and finally found my speed.  A little too late.  I managed a 10th place finish.  Meh.

Some of these guys are clearly over the line.  

My support crew. (Thanks Rachelle!)
