Leadville MTB 100 on a ‘Cross Bike (better late than never)

by Jacob Lapenna

Misery. Perspective. One sometimes brings about the other. I often find myself seeking out miserable situations, typically outdoors, in order to find perspective, as these situations have a unique way of sorting out the things that really matter in life. Too often, in a world full of comforts and conveniences, we find ourselves in these microcosms, living overly complicated lives, … Read More »

Three Weeks Til NAHBS

by Douglas Ansel

In an industry speeding towards economies of scale and mass-produced carbon frames, the custom framebuilder can seem a relic of the past, harkening back to the olden days of lugged steel frames.

Boo – Training Peaks takes on Cincy3

by Douglas Ansel

It was impossible to miss the giant black school bus with gold lettering on the side as I rolled up to the start/finish area to sign in for Friday afternoon’s race at Devou Park. It had a better parking spot than even the Rapha – Focus and Cannondale teams, within sight of the finish line and with a prime view … Read More »

Racing Under the Neon Lights at CrossVegas

by Douglas Ansel

The neon lights of the Vegas strip glittered on the horizon, barely visible through the spotlights surrounding the perimeter of the soccer complex where the strongest field the United States cyclocross scene will see was gathered.

The USA Pro Cycling Challenge Party and Boo Bus Launch

Halfway up the climb in the Vail Time Trial, a throng of people teemed around a large flatscreen TV mounted on the side of an old school bus. Andrew Talansky, the young rider on team Garmin-Sharp, had just set a time so quick in Stage 5 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge that only Tejay van Garderen would top it … Read More »
