Every year, Bryn and I try to do at least one coaching weekend at our partner resort- Stevens pass. The bike park has everything you need; chairlift, fun trails, food, bike shop, rentals, good people etc. It feels good to share our knowledge and help people with their riding. World Cup riders have spent a lifetime tweaking on set ups, changing things, training, studying efficiency, evolving the small details, and I'd like to think we have well trained eyes for improvement as a team. We can geek out forever on this stuff:). Just wanted to say thank you to people who attended, and Stevens for making it easy for us to do these. Keep an eye out for the next one:)
Two stops of the Crankworx world tour took us over to the Alps for sunny conditions and a lot of racing...
Les Gets is one of the coolest zones in Europe with the Portes du Soleil , which connects 12 resorts with chairlifts, and Austria, a new venue with a ton of potential. Both stops offered different flavors of culture, language, and riding, but the sunshine was constant, for once:)
Well, after deciding we need a pumptrack in my home town, then raising some money, getting the WMBC and city onboard, messing around with permits, site visits, city council, etc , and then bringing in Momentum Trail builders to build and design this thing, the city of Bellingham now has a pumptrack in the parck across the street from my house!!! Dream big people :) Stoked to make a difference and bring people together with bikes. Special thanks to Eric Brown team leader:)
Monterey, CA- April 19-22, 2017 “It’s pretty obvious that slalom is the main attraction at Sea Otter. Year after year it delivers some of the best racing, and I think the minor change they made gave us something to think about. I woke up excited for it, and kinda just appreciated how much fun I was having... wish we could race it more often. The optic handled the course amazing, and the sunshine and dust felt good :).”
“For Downhill, my legs were feeling it in on Sunday morning from all the pushing up hills and sprints. Practice is early and there is so much explosive pedaling in this “DH”. The course seems simple, but there is very little room for error and every movement counts, so I enjoy piecing it all together.”
