81. Howling Coyote

Awooooooooooooooo! It was the inaugural Howling Coyote gravel grinder, presented by Substance Projects, and it was Epic.  How epic was it?  The race was so gigantically boss, it was staged in collaboration with basically EVERYBODY WHO LIVES IN MONO.  As Riot on Racing's blog says, it felt like the entire community was there in some … Continue reading 81.

64. Steaming Nostril 2018

Snort! Elmira, Ontario.  April 8, 2018. Wow.  Just wow. It was probably one of my toughest races yet. It was cold.  It was muddy.  It was really really hard.

It … Continue reading 64. Steaming Nostril 2018
