I'm Podcasting

I'm still working on a personal podcasting project. I haven't had a lot of time recently. I'll let you know when the first episode "drops". It's one of the scariest things I've ever done.

Outlaw Triathlon Blueprint

I’ve completed 7 ironman distance events. Zurich (1998 & 1999), Almere (2002), The Longest Day (2003), Roth (2008), The Outlaw (2010) and Challenge Henley (2013). Almere I'd go back to.

It also pushed me to work on skills like cornering and pack riding.

Big Forest Bike And Boys On The Airstrip

Robert suggested I build the bike up fully and ride it before sending the frame for painting. Just to check alignment again and that we hadn’t forgotten any important braze-ons.In late January I threw on some old and / or cheap components just for test purposes. But with all the snow on the ground I couldn’t get to ride it outside until last week.
