  • Track is a good time. So crazy fast. We just finished our team pursuit warm up with "lighter gearing" at 30-34 mph. Going through a turn at that speed is pretty darn cool. Can't wait to see what race speed feels like. Still haven't found the A-line drop though...
  • The most well-tanned cyclist in the bunch @seppkuss and the Big Boi of mountain biking @ryanstandwich sending it here in Windham.
  • Awesome singletrack > more course laps. Showed @competitivecyclist and @usacycling teammate @ellenlikesbikes one of the best trails I've ever ridden. Flowy, fast, east coast tech at its best. #growMTB
  • Tough day for team USA. Howard and Keegan held it down for the Americans though with 2nd and 10th! I managed to go down hard on Beatrice, and ended up with 7 stitches in my shin. It should have been more, but I left too much skin on the rocks. This race is so unforgiving. 10 practice laps no problem, but a totally different ball game on race day. Banged up, but honestly looking forward to another shot in Windham next weekend. Big thanks to @usacycling for the awesome support.
  • Having a fun recovery day shredding around the uber-flowy Quarry trails here in ATX's sister city. #growMTB @competitivecyclist @reynoldscycling
  • One of these days. Just trying to get through. Some times the workout isn't too hard on paper, but bad legs can make it one of the biggest struggles so far this year. Nothing a little liquid caffeine courage can't get me through. #thankgodforgasstations #liquidcourage #funnylegs
  • Just another glorious evening with this one. #eartheveryday #growMTB
  • Here they are, my race whips for 2015! Massive thanks to @competitivecyclist, @jsager, and @yeticycles. Also to @reynoldscycling, @srammtb, @raceface604, @fizikofficial, @chriskingbuzz, and #magurabrakes. The ASR weighs in at 22.3 lbs with pedals, bottle cage etc. I haven't weighed the ARC yet, but it's easily under 20 lbs. #stokelevelhigh #growMTB
