  • Final day before the big race! The whole team is riding strong together, and we've made a lot of progress in our pre-worlds training camp. ---
Looking forward to my first ever Professional World Championships. It's still a little surreal and hard to believe it's here, but I'm also excited to seize the moment. Live in the moment. And hope to fully enjoy the experience.
  • Ice cream and waffles getting me through #NJGranFondo. #HappinessWatts
  • Stage 6 @usaprochallenge had some amazing views, which I enjoyed from the grouppetto in the final 15km. ---
I suffered tremendously to get through the first hour, at 48kph average. Then in the final 60 kilometers of the stage, I used every ounce of my dwindling energy to help my teammate Sebastian for the sprint. I finished in the grouppetto, and Seba was 2nd in the field sprint. ---
It's true, I had the energy and strength to finish with the peloton. But for what? Pack fill? Those outside cycling don't always see or understand how this sport is a "team sport." For me, I knew I couldn't beat the sprinters who were in the race, but Seba could. ---
When I came to the team bus, Seba told me how the final 3km played out, with him second in the field sprint; but not before he thanked me for my efforts. For @teamjamishb, it was our first Top-10 this week. I didn't have the legs or power to get that result, but being a part of that success is what drives me to train better and harder every day. ---
And one of these days, it'll be me getting results, thanking my teammates for all their efforts and sacrifice. I know what it takes, and I won't take it for granted.
  • Team Jamis has a new barista in training this morning. Seba Haedo making the morning coffee on our drive to Golden. Stage 7 @usaprochallenge coming up!
  • Stage 3 @usaprochallenge was another big day in the break. ---
First time I've ever been off the front for more than 160km!
Looking forward to giving it another good shot today on the roads to Aspen!
  • "I'm not going to win in a sprint. So I had to try and go from a long way out." - My Stage 1 tactic. Full report is available @cyclingnews_feed ---
Stage 1 @usaprochallenge was a terrific experience. From the moment I made the break, the crowds were incredible, all the way around the circuit. Add to that the incredible messages of support I received after the race, and I'm so grateful to have such awesome sponsors, fans, and support. ---
I finished the stage 3rd Overall in the KOM competition, and 2nd in Most Aggressive competition. Of course the only thing missing now is a "1st place." Fortunately, this race has only just begun, and there are still six more stages to try again. I can't wait to get back in be action today on Stage 2. See you all on the roads between Steamboat Springs and Arapahoe Basin.
  • Stage 1 @usaprochallenge coming up. Kit, numbers, and gear laid out and ready to get the big show underway. ---
Made possible by: @powertappix @ogioint @motofishcoffee @hincapiesports @jamisbicycles @maviccycling @rudyprojectna @ritcheylogic @rideshimano @vittoriatires @sutterhomewines
  • Stage 6 @thetourofutah brought mixed fortunes for @teamjamishb. Gregory suffered some lingering effects of an earlier crash; and for the first time ever, I passed Guardsman Pass and started the final 10km climb with the GC Contenders. Today is the final stage, and gives us one final chance to give our all, leaving every ounce of energy on the roads around Park City.
  • Stage 5 saw me realize one of my big goals @thetourofutah as I powered into the early break. @teamjamishb continues to ride strong, with everyone healthy, strong, and prepared to attack the final two stages, which are set to decide the Overall standings.
  • Stage 4 @thetourofutah started and finished in Soldier Hollow. For a bike race to share the same venue as the Winter Olympics is a pretty amazing experience. The team rode incredibly strong, with everyone staying safe and near the front of the race.
  • Yesterday, Stage 3 @thetourofutah tackled four climbs, including Trappers Pass. We had some bad luck, missing the break, and then Gregory took a hard fall on the descent from this KOM on Trappers Pass. @TeamJamisHB rallied to keep Gregory rolling, and he battled it out in the front group all the way to the finish. For me, I also reached the finish in the front group, and being able to follow some late race attacks was a huge boost to the confidence. --- Today we tackle another 200+km stage with 3,000M climbing on three KOM's. Looking forward to another big stage.
  • Stage 3 @thetourofutah starting from Antelope Island. Stunning scenery here. Last time I was on the island, I was racing my first ever #USAC Jr Men's National Championship ITT. Crazy to reflect back on the journey, and seeing how far I've come since then.
  • During Stage 1 @thetourofutah I had my seat slip on the descent to Bear Lake. Thanks to the amazing staff of @teamjamishb, we were able to make the adjustments on the fly, and I was right back into the race. #ProCycling #DontTryThisAtHome. ????: Jesse
  • New pre-race tradition this summer! Thanks @coppangel and Jeremy.
  • Eastern Oregon agriculture. Nothing but country. #RoadTrip
  • Finishing up my mid-season break with a mini-vacation #InBend. It's been four awesome days showing @aliciarayeking all the places that made me fall in love with the bike in the first place. Our mountain bikes are covered in dust, and I'm feeling refreshed and recharged for the final half of the 2015 Road season.
