  • Heading to Chicago!

    Quick update: We made it into Aurora late last night after 14 HOURS in the car yesterday. After a good night’s sleep, Kristine took the kids with our friends to play at a children’s garden/playground nearby, and I am getting caught up on a few things. Later this afternoon I’ll be driving part of the […]

  • 2008 Bull’s Gap Time Trial

    Quick summary: 3rd place! behind two Masters World Time Trial Champions: Mike Olheiser (2006) and David Grice (2003). I was happy with just about every aspect of my ride except for having a little bit too much left towards the end. Mike’s time of 48’27” shattered the old course record set by GW by over […]

  • Bull’s Gap Time Trial

    Here is a blast from the past. I am racing this Sunday for sentimental reasons as much as for the training. It will be exactly 15 years since my first bicycle race – the Bull’s Gap time trial in 1993. Here a couple pictures my dad took during that race. You can’t miss the tube […]

  • Huntsville Criterium Photos

    Here’s a few photos from the races this past weekend. Most of these are not my pictures so I have linked to the photo hosted on other sites.

  • Alabama State Road Race and Huntsville Crit (updated)

    Update: Somebody just pointed out to me that the criterium was not the state championship criterium. That is coming up here in Birmingham at the Pepper Crit in September. If I can medal in that race, then I will have medaled in all three Alabama state championship events! Quick summary: 3rd yesterday in the road […]

  • Alabama State Road Race – Update

    It was a very exciting race, and it came down to an exciting three-up sprint which I led out, head down, 40mph (slight downhill) thinking that I had the jump to hold it to the line – but Mike Olheiser and Matt Winstead came around with less than 50 meters to go. That meant third […]
