Shasta-Lemurian Classic, April 30, 2011 by JQ

“S**T!…I should have gone to Napa for the weekend!” There are days when the racing Gods just don’t want you to win. I should have taken the hint when they blew my race number into Lake Shasta before I even picked up my package and the race organizers had to replace it. The Lemurian is [...]

Sea Otter Classic Cat 2 Cross Country, April 17, 2011 by Chris Sota

Needless to say the Sea Otter Classic is one of the most competitive mountain bike events you can find in the Northern California area.

Sea Otter Classic Cat 1 Cross Country, April 15, 2011 by Jon Smith

Napa Valley Dirt Classic, Apr 10, 2011 by Jon Smith

Morning comes really early when you have to drive over 2 hours to the race… I arrived at the race site and got squared away registered and bike prep’d. It was sunny but cool so I had all my warmers on with compression socks and a undershirt for core warmth. I decided to try to [...]
