I remember owning a power washer that I bought at Harbor Freight, home of cheap tools, a long time ago. I brought it to my parents house to help clean the siding and immediately blew a chunk right out of the side of the house. Oops!

Here is a video of my Cat 4 race unedited. I gives a pretty good look at the whole course and all the obstacles you face on a muddy day like this was. I apologize in advance for the cussing and swearing and such.

The 10th anniversary of CITP was a huge success, with the second largest registration and a great course.

The mud was heavy as usual, so I was happy to survive two races, the Cat 4 and the Master's 50+ without losing any parts off the bike. The two in a day was hard, bu...

It was a muddy event in Parma this weekend, and the mud was just what the doctor ordered. After a disappointing race last weekend, I felt a little refreshed and ready to race in the mud.

Two major changes in tactics helped. The first was to stay on the bike, and the sec...

Sometimes you need to ride harder.

With the days getting shorter and work and family stuff in full swing, it is almost time for trainer season. This month, I was encouraged to hear that one training platform actually made a step in the right direction. TrainerRoad has...

The other day I took my upgrade to CAT 4 for road racing after talking to some friends on a coffee shop ride. I had been hesitant to pursue it, and I doubt that based on my results anyone would force it on me. So I asked out loud at 22 mph in a paceline, "What do you t...
