According to Jens Voigt he's had a concrete offer from @teamsky for 2013. Oh Yes. Oh Yes. Oh Yes.— Dave (Dim) (@dimspace) July 27, 2012

USPRO 2012 in bad pictures pt. 1: the TT

welcome to the prequel. the time trial isn't quite as exciting as the road race, but it does have it's advantages. you can get way closer to the riders. for example, as they finished their runs,...

cyclists - it's your fault if you get hit by a car

some moron in north georgia (no, not me, another guy) wrote a ridiculous (trying to not use my french here) editorial on why cyclists shouldn't be on the road. that's fine if that's your position, everyone's entitled to be wrong, but this guys goes a step beyond. well, like 10 or 20 steps. anyway, he's a total douche and it would be nice if he got a few hundred emails that clearly and respectfully explained to him why exactly that is. if you have a little time, please send him an email (email found in article) by the way, the riding around blue ridge is awesome. my favorite georgia mtb trail is minutes away. if i'm lucky, one day this guy might run me off the road.

pdc national champs ride sunday in greenville sc

here is the (very loose) plan so far. meet at the location linked above (base of paris mountain) at 10 am sunday morning. there's a grassy spot between poinsett hwy and buncombe rd we've parked on many times in the past. from there the "plan" is to head west toward caesar's head, climb to the top if people feel like it. don't climb to the top if people don't feel like it. this will be a social ride. a way to experience the area while chit chatting with fellow pdcers about the giro, the previous day's nat champ TT, or the following day's road race. to give you an idea of the terrain, this is the ride we did last year. if you take out the climb in the middle of the profile, you can see it's fairly flat around there. when we get back to the cars, if you have watts left in your legs you'd like to get rid of, we'll be at the base of paris mountain. if you have a better idea, i'm all ears. the only requirements are quiet roads and easy terrain close to downtown greenville. so far it seems like sminer and spokejunky are in. my buddy robert and i makes it four. there's a few other people that have expressed interest. pace will be slow, unless everyone wants to make it faster. i plan on having beers waiting for me at the end. we can always head back into town post ride for some more liquid fun and lunch. if you need more info, ask here or hit me up on the email showed on my pdc profile page.

just came across this. no idea where it's from or what it's for, but it's a great movie of what riding around in pisgah forest is like.

terrapin twilight results

it was good night in athens, ga. the crowds were out as usual. it was a hot day, and i'm sure the racers felt it. we found a spot serving ranger and pbr right before the finish line. i got to do a little bit of screaming at cyclists, which is always fun. unfortunately, my pick for the women's race came in second to last. she was up near the front all race, but i guess couldn't hold it as the pace went up in the last couple of laps. on the men's side, things were a little less interesting. the field is much bigger (120 vs 30 something) and they go faster so it's much more of a big blur going by. makes it tough to identify anyone. spent all race trying to find my buddy Ben racing. it took several pairs of eyes a few laps to get a sighting. i guess things were exciting on the back stretch, when the night's big wreck happened. i managed a couple beer handouts, hung out with friends, saw my sister... can't complain. title link takes you to the women's report. this link takes you to the men's report. and this link takes you straight to the women's podium, atop which stands the lovely Erica Allar. and if you get the chance to try a terrapin hopsecutioner, don't pass it up.
