Double Ride Wednesday


Another awesome double ride day. Making the most until I go back to work. 10 days remaining. Fun 18 miler at TMBA on the fatty. Felt great out there. Finally have the positions dialed in. Trails were killer. Great sign since it was flooded. Ride # 2 with The Herd. Fun 32 miler. The rain didn't happen until after the ride. Stole another one! Man, I love to ride!

Mad Cow TT # 8 - On Track


Another awesome day. Fun ride at Hayes with Big Tim in the afternoon followed by MCTT # 8. It's been 2 years since we raced that course. It is a great one. The roads were in great shape. Yesterday was windy. haha I rode the course. Legs weren't great. I rolled back in to the lot to grab a drink. Talked to Buz & Tree. They both were happy with their effort. W SW wind meant it was fast going out. The cross wind gusts luckily were minimal going out. I felt better than the warm up. I reached Lockington (halfway )with the fastest time. Right turn going down Lockington Hill. Wind gust hit me as I made the right bend on the bottom. Luckily I was holding the bars tightly. I made the right turn on River Rd. building up speed after slowing for the intersection.




Up River Hill. I kept a high cadence. Not too bad, but I could tell the legs were tiring. The Treeline after the top blocked the wind for a bit which was nice heading back. The wind was howling as the treeline ended. haha Another huge gust on the 2 90 degree s turns. I held the bars as tightly as I could. haha Legs were tired, but I got it done. 2nd Place on the day. 16 seconds slower than 2018, but conditions were way windier yesterday. Looking at the numbers post race, things are coming along nicely. I know I'm faster this year. More room for improvement too. We'll see next week at the Blue Streak. Great job everyone!

Fun fat bike Sunday ride with Big Tim & Foxy in Bainbridge. Love that loop. Sunshine & 70. I miss the heat, but it was perfect temps for the route. Great scenery today. 47+ miles with 3900+ ft. of climbing. Another awesome week in the books!

Might as well race. haha Windy, but awesome day! 10.19 mile route. I felt horrible on my warm up. I checked my saddle height. Turned out it was low. Quick fix and off I went. Good thing I checked.

Mad Cow Liberty Gravel Challenge - Moooooooo!



2nd race of the weekend. Liberty gravel challenge. The heat returned. Yes! Big Tim went off 6 mins in front followed by Buz at 3 mins. Awesome 10 mile loop with thick gravel. The wind kicked up each lap. Fun stuff! 17.4 mph avg including a quick stop for adjustment. We did the 3 lap challenge since we were heading to Hayes for single track action post race. Well, the storms rolled in just as we finished. Bummer. The guys rode well too. Great day tho!

Mad Cow TT # 6 - Right on track!


Mad Cow TT # 6 Friday. 22 miles of fun? haha 4th place at 27 mph avg. I normally don't feel great on the long ones. I paced it perfectly. Wind kicked up heading West for the last 5 miles on SR 55. I lost huge amount of time compared to the early riders tho. I avg'd 28.2 mph where they were 30+ mph. The TT has a 12 hour window and some days you are on either side of it. haha Bike felt great and I'm very pleased. Things are progressing nicely. Great turn out once again.
