Lucky 13 it was…13 laps = 131 miles and 10,500 feet of climbing on the RIP-TASTIC trails of Hanson Hills Recreation Area in Grayling, MI. Jess came along with me this time and provided amazing support. In endurance formats it is a team effort even though you are racing solo. Mucho thanks darling! We drove […]Read More 1st at 12 Hours of Hanson Hills
Funky Times! I got my FUNK on at the Funk Bottoms Gravel Grinder. This was the second time that I have ventured over to the Funk Bottoms. The first time was quite the challenge and the second time didn’t disappoint. It rained an inch or so the day before, so I knew it would be […]Read More Funky Times!!! – 1st Single Speed 100K

Versailles State Park in Indiana is where it all went down. This park is beautiful and I really have to commend Indiana on a job well done. The terrain was an up and down affair on a course consisting of 13 mile laps with a 1000 feet of elevation gain per lap. I was impressed […]Read More 1st Overall at 24 Hours of DINO
‘OO’ (Double-Ought Buckshot), my moniker for this beast. It is a lightweight, single-speed, carbonic-flexing puncher of a machine. I am so looking forward to getting this puncher out on the race courses this year. I expect it to slice and dice the single track in my endurance races over the year and beyond.
