Ride Bikes, Eat Food.

April 21, 2011 by josh

Started the mid-week rides up again. Met Jake, Bill,Jared, and Skid up at Lambert for a little pre-riding of the USCS race course for this weekend. Didn’t get in a lot of riding.  We lost Skid and when I stopped to adjust my rear shock after the first lap, it started raining.  Then it REALLY [...]

Bike Peddler’s Frozen Hog 2011

January 31, 2011 by josh

The 2011 Frozen Hog  is in the history books. The turnout for this years race was, in a word, disappointing.  Whether it was because of the deplorable conditions of the previous two years, or “Camp Lynda” dragging the leg shaver crowd to warmer climes, it was a hearty if meager crowd. The conditions for this [...]

Mud and Guts on 3…

December 5, 2010 by josh

With the end of the UTCX season in sight, and the weather taking a turn towards winter, the races are getting more interesting if less crowded.  These are the races that separate the devotees from the mere enthusiasts. Saturday’s race was at Fort Buenaventura in Ogden.  I had only ever raced there once before and [...]

Right Round Baby…

November 11, 2010 by josh

Winter is now officially upon us.   And as such my “training” has fallen off a bit.  For most of the summer, CanuckyJeff and I would meet up with some combination of Paul Zimm-The-Man,  the Rawlings, and the Nelsons for an early morning ride.  Perhaps an overly social ride, I never got Clenbuterol fast,  but [...]

I’ve Been Busy

October 25, 2010 by josh

Not that anybody noticed, but I haven’t posted anything up here in awhile. It’s been three weeks since my last confession. I have been quite busy however.  When we last left our hero I was in the throws of the stomach flu.  Conveniently this hit me right before the first UTCX race.  Back then I [...]

No, I'm not sucking in.  Why would you say that?

Things To Do When You Are Violently Ill

October 4, 2010 by josh

First, lets define violently ill. Friday evening we had a few friends over for a good old-fashioned-weenie-roast.  The fire barrel was in full glory, kids were playing, Canadian Republican political theories were being shot down left and right.  You know, a nice night.  Before you get all “..well duh, don’t you know what’s in hot [...]

Break A Leg

October 1, 2010 by josh

Wednesday night Skid and I set out from the Summit parking lot to ride South Fork.  I had received a text from Kris Nosack that he and his wife Jolene would be starting a little earlier from Timpanooeke and would try to hook up with us. I was fidgeting with a new bike, and the [...]

Fall Color

Paul Zimm-the-man sent me some pictures from his Saturday ride up the canyon.  It looks a lot more beautiful than the dusty, hot, cross race that I DNF’d Saturday.

Raleigh Cross #1

September 11, 2010 by josh

Hot damn, it’s cross season again.  It started about a month early thanks to the boys at Cyclesmith and the Utah Crit Series.  They’re running a race each Saturday until the UTCX season starts and then Sundays after that. The venue was This Is The Place State Park. More accurately, the construction site adjacent to [...]

All The Leaves Are Brown…

September 9, 2010 by josh

Kerry asked me why I hadn’t updated/posted on the blog lately.  I told him it’s because I hadn’t really done anything interesting.  At least not bike related.  I got skunked last week on the group ride with no one showing up for the Big Springs crit.  I blame myself for that one because the email [...]
