The Puker – “You must be this tall to ride”


Remember the Scrambler??  Of course you do!  It sucked.  Especially if you just got off the Tilt-O-Whirl.  Holy hurl-fest.  Kind of reminds me of the Puker this morning. I had a little time, so I rode in and picked up Mark Lampe on the way.  It was nice to arrive at a hill repeat sessionContinue reading “The Puker – “You must be this tall to ride””

6am Cedarburg Cobbles Crash in the dark


A great morning for me, but not a good way to start the day for 1 rider.  I headed to Whitefish Bay this morning for the 5:30am beat down ride.  Rolling out in the darkness 2-up, we picked up the pace right away.  Roads were wet and riding that fast in the dark, even withContinue reading “6am Cedarburg Cobbles Crash in the dark”

The other Dirty Dozen


Lee Marvin is badass.  Undisputed.  But I’m talking about a different Dirty Dozen… one that involves push-ups and sit-ups.

Warm ups are for winners?


We all know how important it is to warm up before you ride or race, but how many people do it right? Not me. The more I race and ride, the more I continue to learn about racing and riding – and about how I work.  I usually try to warm up at least aContinue reading “Warm ups are for winners?”

Whatever doesn’t kill you…


I just got this quote in my email: “It’s easy to do the right thing when you are on top of the mountain. But true character is exposed by how you act during the climb up.” Thursday Mornings mean “The PUKER”! Laps of goodness this morning with 1 thing missing… a seat. New seatpost isContinue reading “Whatever doesn’t kill you…”
