XTERRA goes Duathlon

June 14, 2013


…but it definitely was not by choice. Tropical Storm Andrea saturated the race course for days before the XTERRA East Championship. I flew in early Friday morning, with intentions of biking and swimming the course, but the non-stop rain had started on Thursday and the trail system was officially closed. I decided to go shopping […]

Cohutta 100

April 30, 2013


Wanted to do a race report from this years Cohutta 100 race, decided to work of my draft from last years Cohutta. When I opened it, I found the following text (a message I had send to my Odyssey AR teammates post race): “Got 9/27. Crazy tough course. They added more single track and 2,000 […]

FSC MTB Series ’12

December 15, 2012


Last Sunday wrapped up the Gone Riding Florida State Championship mountain biking series, a nine race series which brings out the best riders across the state.

Vista View 360

March 13, 2012


It was a tossup between the Vista View run and the 6th and final race of the Gone Riding Coconut Cup mountain bike series. I pre-rode the course at Halpatiokee in Stuart on Saturday. They had a great course set up which made for a tough debate as to what to do Sunday, especially since […]

Coconut Cup #4 – Oleta

January 22, 2012


  Ok, Ok. So I got 1st Place out of 1 in the Women’s XC1 class today. Oleta is always a brutal course…and you could tell by how many racers were missing. Every time you ride those trails more than 20 mi, your whole body aches. It’s really hard to get a flow on the […]

12 Hrs of Amelia

January 12, 2012


12 Hours of Amelia – Jan 7, 2012 I had no idea how things would turn out this race. I’d been sick for over a week prior and hadn’t been on my mountain bike since FSC #9 Santos on Dec 11th. No matter how much I coughed or spat up mucus prior to race start, everyone […]
