He’s Not Racing Road with these….
by Byron on Jul 25, 2014 at 11:03 AM
Didn’t know I wanted Camo Sidis with pink socks until I saw Blake wearing them last night. Blake is getting ready for Cross season…that starts for us immediately after the Tour. And we’re getting real restless about it.

In this Tour, anything goes…winking is contrary to every narrative ever written abut the human condition and suffering in the Pyrenees. So why not take a pull from the moto?

Slaying the Badger is on Tonight
by Byron on Jul 22, 2014 at 1:06 PM
Our friends from Rapha reminded me that tonight on ESPN, is Slaying the Badger. Check your local listings and read the entire first chapter from the book
In the midst of competition, Hinault attempted to snatch victory like a furious, clawing rodent… he acted not only for himself but for a nation horrified that its great race might be hijacked by an American outlaw.

Voeckler tries to steal the show, but in the Pyrenees, Mick Rogers takes a bow.

Rest Day for Us Too

In the Aspens, mayne, with a nice whip
A rest day for the Tour and one for us to get caught up on photos, videos, and words after a week on the road in Vegas for SXSW, then Scott Week. Here’s a storied, swipey, touchy version of my Genius LT Tuned ride.
Lots of things to push, click, and switch
And if you’re into that sort of industry intrigue, at the high end, Scott specs SRAM drivetrains with XTR brakes. I pushed and clicked everything hanging off that bar and it all worked splendidly. Even flipped the chip, which switches the geo from short to long.
Also see this vignette on Medium about the Voltage I rode too.
Rode a Freeride Bike
After I’m through the 5 gigs of photos taken, they’ll get shared like this one in the G+ gallery.
Le Tour Stage 15 Recap: 10 Meters Short
by Byron on Jul 20, 2014 at 8:14 AM
Jack Bauer the cyclist pulled for like 24 hours, breakaway nearly stayed away, the catch, and then Kristoff wins!
That was 10 meters too short for Bauer and left him shattered.
China-Loading Before High Cascades 100
by Byron on Jul 20, 2014 at 7:59 AM
Mark V China-loads before a race
Yesterday Mark V raced a 100 miles on his mountain bike. Like his adventure on gravel, his athletic ability is unprocessed and unrefined….organic even. He just shows up at events like this periodically.
The front of the field is no longer in sight, though it’s not like I didn’t already know that I’m not fit enough to hang with them. Long distance isn’t my forte, and I don’t really have that many miles in my legs this year. – from Issue 13, Grand Fondo Leavenworth
Expecting a dream sequence in his 100-mile MTB race report for the next issue of our mag, like Jim Morrison met him on the trail, and insisted he continue. Texting from somewhere in the Oregon outback, I received periodic updates
don’t carbo load before races; I china-load.
my triceps hurt so bad….like I sat in a car for a game of “Punch Bug” w Mike Tyson.
At Leavenworth, he blamed his horrible cramping on the lack of Chinese food
But whether Leavenworth is more Bavaria or rural Washington, I am clearly not going to get the type of semi-authentic Chinese food I’m craving.
Good thing he found some in Bend and finished with legs intact.
Issue 15 drops next month with articles about the mountain biking I did during Scott Week too.
