To prep, the barriers made an appearance at our local weekly Dirt Crit course. And a few brave souls dared to dust-off their dismount/remount skills in front of the cameras w...

It started like this. Matt Struckman, of @2timingGuys notoriety, messaged out “Who wants to race as a 24 hour 5-person coed team for the #Wausau24 at the end of July? That gives us 4 weeks to find some fitness. Sunny, the coed part is very dependent on you…” To which I...

The 2017 DVV Trophy series Azencross with its astroturf pumptrack and the Brico Cross Breden race with it's new American-Style mudfest mini-roller coaster, are in the history books, and my quads are still firing, bikes still rolling.

I'll tell you. Back in the day, (when gas skyrocketed to $4.00/gallon and people still...

As I rode up to the starting line of the Pan American Champs, I made a beeline for the far right side, best spot on the 2nd row! Prerace, I had assumed that I would have a...

We caught up with Sunny as she was heading to bed to ask her about the Day 1 competition and to get her take on which socks she might wear tomorrow.

Partly Cloudy: Were you blown away by the competition today?

Sunny: I was certainly blown away at the competition. During...

The second year I raced at JingleCX in the Elites, I was still running down Mt. Crumpit.

I was strong enough to be in the mid-pack mix, and fleet of foot enough from years of cross country running to maintain contact with other riders as I dismounted, slip-n-strode, re...
