104. Albion Hills Fatbike!

Rainmageddon It was not a good start to the day. The forecast called for 50 to 75mm of rain, starting in the morning, followed by a deep freeze.  Rain does not melt the snow on trails, it makes ice. Also, for my American friends, 50 to 75mm is 2 to 3 inches.  Yes, of rain.  … Continue reading 104. Albion Hills Fatbike!

2019 I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually kind of glad the 2019 race season is over.  I mean, sure it was a great season of big boss racing, but after 16 races I'm tired.  Like, really really tired.

The 2019 P2A70 is a Wrap! Well that was fun. Truthfully, it was actually kind of horrible.  But the fun kind of horrible. A giant, horrible, fun-bucket of playing bikes.
