Hear Me Roar

I wrote a blog post for Nationals, but it was uninspired and boring. Instead, I want to take the time to highlight the last 3 races I have done (US Nationals, World Cup Fiuggi Regiune Lazio (Italy), and World Cup Hoogerheide (Netherlands)). They were 3 completely different courses that required totally different skill sets, yet my 3 weakest points determined …

Zonhoven, a Day in the Sand

Zonhoven. (with almost zero photos because I just can’t be bothered to take them myself, and no one else took any. I suck) I had my very first Belgian cyclocross experience, and it didn’t go terribly. Being my my first trip to Europe to race cross, I came in with no real expectations.

Woodstock Firebelly

Following is an example of how to use only brute force, not any smarts whatsoever, in order to do fairly well at a road race. Warning: contains talk of poop and frustrations.

The Nasty Nati

There have been quite a few races this year I have called a “home race”, but this one may be the closest to my heart. I’ve never raced Cincy3 (now just… 2), but grew up only 60 miles away. The close proximity meant my parents could attend BOTH DAYS without even getting a hotel room. They have only seen me …
