I Bet This Stuff is Gnarly when its Wet!

Stage two at the TransSylvania Epic consisted of just over 5000 ft of climbing in about 43 mies incorporating some of the most amazing single track I have ever ridden.

A slight break through in Belgium

Balagem, BE December 25, 2011 The first thing I noticed as we pulled into Balagem  was how many people had decided to spend their Christmas Day at the cyclocross races. I saw families with young kids. I saw old men by themselves. I even saw two older women helping each other wash a bike for…
