This past weekend I organized the first ever A-ROK EPIC. This was a event  done all on mountain bikes, that included man hours on a bike, a sprint competition, a General Classification, and a new rider award. The Winners were Jeff Turner for GC, Jimmie Vaughn won sprint competition, and Chris Schafer won the new rider award. We had 10 riders take on the  15,000 ft of climbing, combined of road, sick fire roads you can believe are in this region, and some rough single track. The pic below is the final 4 to survive the biggest day.

Other Stuff: Cross Season is on the Way! I have a New Coach from Carmicheal Training Systems. Colin Izzard has a plan to take it to another level. I am truly excited to have my first full-time coach in years! My teammates on Orbea/ Tuff Shed have had great success with CTS. Macky Franklin with top 10 pro XTC, and top 5 eliminator for Kalan Biesel.

I Won the Red River Shootout 2 weeks ago.This race is part of the Tour De Dirt series. I raced my 5 inch super-d bike an took advantage of the nice rock gardens.

I have my New Orbea Occam with fresh Geax tread ready for Super-D nationals this coming weekend. I’ve finished 3rd twice back in 07,08. Hopefully I can get on the box again. It’s high speed which is my style, but the 600ft climb at altitude to start it may cause problems. It’s this Sunday in Sun Valley, Idaho.
