Zoey! Follow me, I have a fist full of treats for you.ย 


Good night of racing out at PIR tonight, Clint did a great job with the course, and Abby, Jeremy, and Cole (pictured above) all looked great out on the course.

Great course indeed! Even though it felt like I did a million laps, it was fun each time through

I hope all these lightning bolts help me go fast!

And yet another squeaky toy meets itโ€™s end

@gematkinson sure was giving her smile a workout today! So happy this lady finally made it to Portland and is enjoying the riding.

Its that time again…

Like it or not, CX season is on here in Portland. For the past few years, David Douglas has served as a good reminder of how fun and painful CX really is; today was no exception. I had a really bad start, quickly worked my way up to 3rd, had a great two laps battling for 2nd, then blew up but managed to hang onto 3rd. We had unseasonably cool weather complete with passing showers, a very welcome change from the usual 95 degree dirt crit conditions that weโ€™ve had for this race in the past. Anyways, it was awesome, weather and all. I always enjoy this course and itโ€™s fun to see everyone again.

Hereโ€™s to another CX season, full of painful races and seeing nervous but happy friends every weekend.

Not the usual bike industry care package! Thank you @molritt! I’ll be day dreaming about good hair and next weeks manicure for the rest of the day ๐Ÿ˜

Broken Teeth And Fake-umentaries: Another Shark Week Gone By

โ€œThe hit summer series was once observed with some respect by serious members of the scientific community. Through the decades, however, it has devolved into a B-movie-style blend of fiction, bad acting, a few facts and potential injuries to sharks.

In some of the shows, real scientists are featured onboard real research vessels at sea. However, their chief priority, beneath flimsy scientific premises, seems always to be landing sweet video footage of sharks biting stuff.โ€

It’s true, Shark Week has become something akin to a B movie and it’s such a bummer
