Vacation is almost in sight!

Berryman Trail Epic is this Saturday. Thats the last of my endurance mtb races. The season closer if you will. What that means is vacation! Vacation to me is CYCLOCROSS!!!!!!!! B'cuz for me its touch as nails, but way shorter so I can recover from it week to week. Plus!, there is minimal windshield time getting to the races.  Er'body 'round the STL area was shittin' bricks of excitement a month n a half ago for CX to start. Now its already old hat and the peeps be coming up with excuses as to why they doin all suckie and or not showing to the races. Funny! Also, its when I get to poke my little hiney into the mix. I raced last weekend and did ok considering Burnin' the weekend before kinda smashed my legs up. Just this last push at BTE and vacay is mine. Here is a sequence that Evil Mike got of me last year hoppin' the barriers.

And thats how its done bitches!

Have a blast this weekend if I don't see ya, and party hard.

Super crazy late Lumberjack 100 photo post

Back in June was Lumberjack 100 in Wellston, MI. EK and drove up together in the lil' subbie. We got to stay in the lap of luxury at Kim and Chris' compound and go swimming in the lake Sunday morn. Thanks guys! I did pretty good at the race. I got 5th in SS. Going up there I figured thats where I'd land. I did bump my time down from last year. Considering I wasn't feeling 100%  I was overall stoked on the race and the weekend.

Here is a drone video of the start.

Now to the pics!

Just keep screaming out...I'm still not dead yet!

Hey so I'm not dead. Over the last few months I've been well I can't even really say busy. Just burnt out, bummed out, and trashed out. In short, ever since Gravel Worlds I have not been myself. I dug myself into a pit as deep as the Mariana Trench and have now been crawling my way back out of it. Toss in some family stuff, and a trailer full of life annoyances and you got yourself preoccupodo.

I'm not gonna get into that. Here are some of the pics I took while I was walking around Queeny Park today trying to clear my head.

I will be honest, not to throw up any red flags,but I have been crazy bummed on a whole array of things last handful of weeks. Going to the park and getting goofy tho tots gets me over the hump. Oh and what is that buckle glimmering in the sunshine you ask? Well my friends that is a Burnin at the Bluff 2015 buckle. I and 2 others braved the only none pussy category and I took the W. The win tho was not what was important to me, but the reason why I feel like I truly earned that shit is because I went out and did 9 laps, 117miles of brutal rocky single track around a lake for 11hrs and 24min which is now course record for time. Last year Dwayne and I killed ourselves to finish 9laps in 11:52. Our eventual goal is the mythical 10 laps, but in 12 hours. 130 miles of this soul destructing course. I've raced this 12hr 5 years now, and the last 2yrs I have learned the most. So whats 13? A very interesting number... and it will be a very special and interesting day when Dwayne and I achieve 10 times 13!
