by Douglas Ansel

Mountain bikers delight to ride singletrack – tight, technical, pounding, flowing singletrack.

For all the hype about its short duration and races lasting an hour at most, cyclocross takes a lot of time, and a lot of fuel. From double days training on the bike and running to spending hours at a venue, pre-riding lap after lap before warming up and then racing full gas for an hour, the energy requirements are … Read More »

Boo – TrainingPeaks Sponsor Spotlight: TrainingPeaks

by Douglas Ansel

In the old days, training advice was wisdom passed down the generations, adages harkening back to Eddy Merckx’s “ride lots” and Eddy Borysewicz’s Eastern Bloc advice. Training was much more art than science, our efforts gauged in speed or crude measures of exertion, our knowledge of what efforts racing required of the body expressed in vague terms. Then technology crept … Read More »

Pro Bike: Brad Cole’s rigid belt-drive Boo 29er

by Nick Frey

Just racing Burke’s new Crusher in the Tushar takes some serious cajones, or at least a momentary lapse in one’s sanity.   But to race for 80 miles, up over 10,000ft of vert, with just a single gear?  I was getting ready to call up Nurse Ratchet when Brad told me this plan.  Maybe some old-school therapy would help dissuade … Read More »

“Crusher…..CRUUUU–SHER….come out and Plaaaayee-yaaaa!” That’s how one of the most epic events in recent memory began: Bruce Bilodeau sang his warning chant while clanging three Coors longnecks connected to his fingers.   And how could a self-proclaimed 80 mile “roadirt” event with over 10,000 feet of climbing begin any other way?     An event dreamt by Burke Swindlehurst, notorious … Read More »
