  • Sassafras Mountain Epic Ride

    Here is the map from the Sassafras ride I did this past Monday to officially end my racing season. This was definitely an epic ride that I think is the best way to end a season of hard training and racing. The ride was 98.3 miles and nearly 8500′ of climbing. This was a little […]

  • End of the season epic – Sassafras Mountain

    It has been a longstanding tradition dating back to my college days at Clemson to end the season the week after the Michellin Classic (now called the Greenville Cycling Classic) with an epic solo ride. While I was at Clemson, I had a 200 mile loop from Clemson with an insane amount of climbing including […]

  • Ivan Basso, Doping, and Redemption

    Ivan Basso will be racing again very soon at the Japan Cup on October 26. I personally am glad that he is racing again, and I hope that he really has put the temptation to dope behind him. I like his plan of publishing all of his workouts, power data, etc… online so that people […]

  • Day 2 – Downtown Greenville Cycling Classic

    A little bit disappointing with how the season ended today – but I am glad I was even able to finish the race after my power meter cable came loose and was getting caught in my gears. I had to shift around in the back as it was jumping around to try to physically push […]

  • Day 2 Pre race – Downtown Greenville Cycling Classic

    We have had a nice relaxing morning, and now we are sitting in a very cool coffee shop Spill the Beans with free wireless and a perfect view of Turn 1 on the race course. The juiniors are racing now and there is a solo breakaway rider  and Nate Brown is in the final process […]

  • Day 1 – Downtown Greenville Cycling Classic

    Summary: 9th place, race came down to a field sprint The Details: Good field of about 60-65 guys including a few DLP pros, Johnny Sundt (Kelly Benefits), and about 12 Coca-Cola Hincapie riders. I worked hard to stay near the front for the first half of the race. I started to cramp up in my […]

  • College Playground

    I love that the last big race of the year and the end of my long racing season each year is in Greenville, South Carolina – very close to my alma matter of Clemson University. Check out my topocreator map! Clemson is highlighted near the center, Greenville is in the upper right, and Highlands, NC […]

  • Flat tires

    With two flat tires in two consecutive days, I thought it was worth posting about my bad luck. Yesterday on the way into work, I had not made it a mile from my house and my rear tire was flat. I didn’t hear a popping or deflating noise, it just went flat so I thought […]
