A splat-grinder it was at the Red River Gorge 100 Mountain Bike Race (RRG). I had nothing on the radar and up popped the RRG.

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.

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
Welcome to Ohio! The best way to adapt to a new environment is to get out and race, I say. The Funk Bottoms Gravel Grinder (Ohio’s Toughest Gravel Grinder) takes place south of Cleveland in the Mohican Wilderness out of a little town called Lakeville, OH. I must say that Ohio has some legit climbing. […]Read More 1st at Funk Bottoms Gravel Grinder
