COMING AND GOING: Sycamore Race Report

I want to be Katy Perry when I grow up. What? It’s too late? Oh, alright, I’ll settle for wife, mother, and mountain bike racer. Or hill bike racer, given the dearth of mountains around here. How did I get to be this old and not ever read W. Somerset Maugham? "Tao. Some of us look for the Way in opium and some in God, some of us in whiskey and some in love. It is all the same Way and it leads nowhither." Or to Riverside County, unlikely site of yesterday’s round four in the Kenda Cup West series. Can anything good come out of ...

You are welcome to publicly disagree, but please do so in a manner appropriate for conversational arguments. This will be posted on both my personal blog (http://fancyshpants.blogspot.com/) an...

Big Bear Shootout: Fast and Loose

I'm sorry. Kind of. . If you were taking a high line around the ponds on Plantation, and two crazy single speeders splashed through the middle and drenched you, I do apologize. Mostly. . Because that was the most fun I had all day. . I've squeaked past Brian Itzaina in a couple of previous races, but he was having none of it at Big Bear on Sunday. He got past me at the top of the first long climb, and then nipped in ahead of me onto the Plantation single track. He has great bike handling skills, so it was all I could do to hold his wheel throu...

He also does weddings, though we hope this will soon become his side job.] Monday morning I awoke effortlessly at 6:30 AM.

Even a few days out from the event, I find myself wanting to play the role of Jack from Lost, frantically trying to c...
