Spring Classic Fever

gravel road cycling

As I was laid out by the “shit your pants I hope I die soon” flu this weekend I had a lot of time on my hands to watch some bike racing online. I freaking love the Spring Classics. They are the most pure form of racing. One day to make it or break it. […]

Training Camp

Spring is starting to tease us with longer days, warming, temps, and the start of The Classics. A winter of fat bikes and trainer workouts leave us wanting to get outside and really rev the engines.

The Tour So Far

cyclocross run up

The overall race so far has been pretty boring unless you are a Chris Froome fan. Honestly I am starting to come around a bit. His attack to take yellow was pretty bad ass and that little FU sprint he did to gain a second against Quintana was pretty cool too. He is more fiesty […]
