Downieville Classic 2016

Another year, and another Downieville Classic. Downieville is my main target race for the year. I like to target it because it is the most technical XC race in northern California, but also because the long climb, long descent style suits my strengths. I do well with sustained efforts (as opposed to punchy climbs) and…



Team Training Camp 2016

We got together for our annual training camp in Santa Cruz was last weekend. The weather cooperated perfectly. Heavy rains from the preceding weeks then a dry spell made for perfectly tacky trails.

Team Training Camp 2015

We met up in Santa Cruz this last weekend for our annual training camp. We’ve been having the camp there for the last three years because the combination of trail quality and mid February weather are hard to beat. With the rain the previous week, and the cloudless skies in the mid seventies, conditions couldn’t…
