The Breck Epic 2015: Part... the next one after "uno"

Another Breck Epic finish in the books.  In some ways, more glorious than ever.  In others, a reason to come back in 2016 for some redemption... as long as I can forget all the painful parts.

Coming off the back of Wheeler pass.  Looking to get down, but still facing the leg-smashing walk up Mt Gotdammit.

The 2015 Breck Epic: Part Uno

Back for my sixth time at the Breck Epic Mountain Bike Stage Race for another week of huffing and puffing... and pedaling and pushing.

The 2015 6 Hours of Warrior Creek

Wilkesbermo never disappoints.  Bermity good action all day long as many Mustaches fought valiantly for podiums and a decent place in line at the post-race barbecue.

When they say "Faster," you say, "MUSTACHE MUSTACHE MUSTACHE MUSTACHE!"

2015 12 Hours of Santos

Why sit on my thumbs trying to keep them from freezing in Charlotte when I could be dodging pine trees and limestone clumps in Florida for the better part of a day with my buddy from Tennessee?

The Backyard Experience: Final Results

Thanks to everyone who braved the conditions for the 2014 edition of The Backyard Experience. The weather was cold and rainy, the trails were twisty and technical, and the field was STACKED with some serious heat. 

Results were based on accumulated time from 4 separate race stages. We awarded time bonuses for riders who rocked the jump-line during our halftime show, which clearly shuffled the deck.  Mike King's huge boosts gave him the edge over Ben Renkema's otherwise flawless racing. 

In the women's race, April Wells proved impossible to catch, holding back 2nd place Emily Watts on every stage to take the top spot on the podium.

The 2014 Wilkes 100k

My last endurance race of 2014... the Wilkes 100k always destroys people while putting a smile on their face at the same time.  So many corpses with perma-grins.
