Racing my way through Texas Cyclocross Season

Gears and beers Day 2

What a doozy this was.  I've never done two races back to back like this and to be honest I was a bit intimidated.  My 4/5 race was at 9:30 in the morning for 40 minutes and the Masters race... Continue Reading →


Gears and Beers…. day 1

What a fun place to have a race. Gears and beers is held at the Tupps Brewery in McKinney - and the brewery itself is near to/next door to some old ruins in McKinney that make for a fantastic backdrop... Continue Reading →

WNX #4

Well... that was a beating.  First lap got caught behind some silliness, had to dismount and run up the hill 2x, on the 2nd occasion, my Bianchi took the opportunity to throw its chain and all said and done I... Continue Reading →

WNX #2
