  • Labor Day Omnium Day 3 – Anderson Civic Center Circuit Race

    This is the same course as the NRC race that I almost won last year. Read my detailed race report from last year. I was definitely hoping to make the podium this year, but the race played out much differently since the race was much shorter. We did 25 laps of the 2.7 mile course […]

  • 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 […]

  • Day 5 – Crossroads Classic – Salisbury Circuit Race

    Race Summary 15th place (9th in field sprint). This placing was enough for me to take 11th overall for the 5 day omnium. My hopes for a top 5 were dashed after a poor road race yesterday. And today, I just missed making it into the top 10 by 3 points. Still, this was a […]

Drive from Winterville, GA to Newton County outside of Covington, GA! The Newton County circuit race – the race had some good shade on half the course. The three and a […]

  • Barbers Ride to Live Race Reports

    Wow, what a great day! This picture about says it all. My teammate Pat Allison won the Pro/1/2/3 race, and I managed to hold on for 3rd after putting in an attack on the last hill. Travis Sherman rode strong to finish 2nd after having won the Masters 30+ race earlier in the day. Summary […]

  • 2010 Ride to Live Race (Barbers Motosport)

    Anytime you live close enough to a race to ride to the race instead of driving, you know that no matter what happens it’s going to be a good day. I woke up to cloudy skies, but no rain. Kristine left with the kids to head off to an Easter Egg hunt in Alabaster with […]

  • The Plein Air Classic Race Report

  • The 2009 Tour de Winghaven

    Crazy hot and humid 95 degrees air temp, 90%humidity, light breeze. I’ve never done a hotter race, although, ironically, the 2nd hottest was this race last year. Even with the brutal conditions this is one of my favorite races. Kristine and the kids love St Louis and when we arrived on Saturday, we met my […]
