  • Six Gap Century Ride Report

    Here is the detailed ride report from Six Gap … looking for power/heartrate or quick summary … look no further than this previous post! Saturday – Analise’s morning soccer game got cancelled so I spent a leisurely morning working on a Nintendo balance board research project. My friend Brad Mabry picked me up around 11:30 […]

  • Six Gap Criterium Race Report

    Race summary Excellent course in downtown Dahlonega. Excellent way to end the season winning three primes, although I repeated my Pepper Crit mistake from 2008 of confusing the last lap of the race with the suicide prime. I thought we still had one lap to go and was going to forego the suicide prime in […]

  • 2011 Six Gap Century

    What a fun experience to ride the Six Gap Century 15 years after I first rode it in 1996. Fifteen years ago, there were about 200 riders assembled at the North Georgia College campus gymnasium to head out of town to tackle six mountains. On the very first climb, we rode from a sunny valley […]

  • Pensacola Stage Race Day 2 – Criterium and Overall

    Criterium Summary What a great day for Tria Cycling! My teammate Pat Allison took the win from a 2-man break hopefully moving up into the top 10 on the GC based on the time differential and time bonuses on offer for the stage. Another teammate, Sammy Flores, took the field sprint for 3rd place in […]

  • Pensacola Stage Race Day 1 – Road Race and Time Trial

    Road Race Summary I’ve got a 4th place streak going on here with two races in a row missing the podium by one spot. The race went well until the final sprint where I came in a disappointing 4th from a 5-man break after losing the wheel of the winner Grant Potter (Z-Motion). Phil Gaimon […]

  • Tropical Storm Lee flooding photos

    Yesterday, the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee blew right through Birmingham transitioning into what our local forecaster, James Spann, called “the perfect storm” as it turned into an extratropical storm when it collided with a low pressure system just north of us. We ended up with almost 8 inches of rain and some pretty amazing […]

  • Labor Day Omnium Day 3 – Circuit Race

    I took 4th place today in the final race of the labor day omnium, my highest placing ever in an NRC event, and I fell just one lap short of taking a solo win. It was an amazing experience even though it was a bit disappointing to miss the podium by one spot. Still very […]

  • Labor Day Omnium Day 2 – Anderson Criterium

    Quick summary – same fast course as last year with flat start/finish, downhill into turn 1, uphill into turn 2, downhill through the back straight with steepest hill into turn 3, followed by the narrow road down into turn 4. I ended up 18th after breaking a spoke on the last lap. The details – […]

  • Labor Day Omnium Day 1 – Time Trial

    I am really starting to like time trials. This was a fun technical course with lots of small rollers. The start was at the bottom of the steepest hill so I may have gone out a little too hard averaging 650watts from the start to the top of the hill, but dropping to 500 watts […]
