The last update was quite some time ago….in fact I just had to double check and discovered it was after the Carson City Off Road and Jr. Mtb Camp in Mid June. So buckle up cowboy…here comes the last 6 months! Luckily its a rain day here in Prescott so I’ve got time for some reminiscing.
The biggest update will have to be the purchase of a 2nd house in Prescott, AZ! After the Chequamegon, Trek CXC, Jingle Cross Block we took a quick trip out to AZ to hang out in some nice weather and check out some real estate!
Going back to July and August I raced the WORS Cup and Ore To Shore where I had some success in the mud and then some bad luck with some flat tires on Misery Hill in the Ore To Shore.
After Ore To Shore we took the most memorable trip of the summer down to Rio to support or Prescott friends Trav and Chloe in their Olympic debut! It was amazing.
After Rio I took a solo road trip to check out the Dakota Five-O. It was quite the adventure trying to find the elusive jackalope which was a blast, but unfortunately I had more bad luck w/ some flat tires.
Then things got really crazy w/ the Chequamegon/TrekCXC double followed by Jingle Cross and the trip to Prescott.
After Prescott it was straight to MI for the MMM Gravel Grinder and then a few local CX and mtb races + Pan AM Games in Cincy in preparations for Iceman. Iceman went way better than expected after the process of buying a new house and moving across the country had started.
We left for AZ the day after Iceman and made the 3 day drive a success. After unpacking the sprinter van it was off to CXLA which was a little rough. A lot of travel and logistics were involved, but somehow I managed a Top 10 on day 2 with a very tired body. I finished up the season 2 weekends ago at the coldest gnarliest race of the season in Indianapolis at the Major Taylor CX. No better way to end that season than on the podium!
This off-season you can either find me on Whiskey Row or out exploring trails!
