Winter Park Mountain Bike Race



This past weekend, I went up to Winter Park to race one of the mountain bike races in the Epic Single Track Series. This week was the Cross Country Super Loop. Lots of climbing, wicked fast descending, a bit of mud, several fast dirt road sections, and one hell of a good time.

The race would have been a bit more fun had I not got a slight bought of food poisoning the night before. It wasn’t much, but the Thai food I ate for dinner had me running to the toilet until 1:30am. Not the best race prep, but I was there to have fun, and I wasn’t gonna let a little Montezuma’s revenge keep me down.

As you can see from the data from my Timex GPS Global Trainer, it was rough start to the race. Straight uphill! Stomach cramps left me easing back on the throttle pretty much from the get go. I held things together for the most part, but finished a rather disappointing 21st out of 33.

The Valley Point to Point and Super D are on July 9th and 10th and I’m thinking I might wear the GoPro camera for one or both of those. Get ready to have some fun!

Live Triathlon Coverage



Ever want to watch a race as its happening, but you’re not there? Or want to see the results right as the athletes finish? Want to be involved in the the action, but there is no way to know what’s going on?

Now there is! Shelby and I are starting up a company called Live Triathlon Coverage. We will be providing everone with the opportunity to watch several pro races going on around the country at the same time. We are first starting out with a Twitter feed that will provide you with tweets including: When the race starts, time gap splits, photos from the course, details of what’s happening in the races, unofficial race results, and much more.  Our first test run will be this weekend at the XTERRA East Championship in Richmond, VA.  So make sure to follow us at @LiveTriathlon on Twitter.

As the company grows, we will have a website that will provide you with live updates as well. That way if you don’t have a smart phone or don’t have a Twitter account, you can still watch all the action live. Once the website is up, I’ll post all about it.
