2013 Bobcat ClassicApr 28 2013 ·4
Sunday morning, April 14th, wake up at 5:30am to get ready for the 2013 Bobcat Classic out at the Lewis and Clark Caverns. Look outside, and there is a fresh layer of snow on the ground with more falling from the dark sky. This was a huge motivation killer! Several texts were sent around to teammates to see if anyone was still going – was it canceled, are the roads dry out at the caverns?… Then, an email from El Jefe – the race was on. Jeff Wyatt, Ryan Hamilton, John Barton, Justin Raynes, Jared Nelson, Anna Dingman, Ivy Peterson and Myself were all in….

Cardwell CrusherApr 01 2013 ·2
I have been racing for a number of years and thought I had tried about all there was to offer. Last year I was lucky enough to have a good friend of mine strongly encourage me to do the Tusher in the Crusher; he promised it would be like nothing I have ever done before. Half pavement-half dirt with over 10k feet of climbing in little less than 70 miles and I was sure it was going to be a hellish experience for this old crit dog. Turned out to be anything but!
This year TRC has approximately 15 riders signed up and given my newfound zeal, I have been scoping out the local roads from every vantage I can to figure out fun and exciting preparation rides. This past Saturday was one I have been excited about for a while, but never got around to trying. We had a good, solid group of riders when we departed Three Forks.
