I love the day after a big race, when I can eat whatever I want and not feel too guilty about it. However, I have to keep my recovery and training in mind and make sure I’m not shooting myself in the foot and destroying my performance potential for the following week. Today I made a smoothie with 2 bananas, 3 tablespoons of Source Of Life Whole Food Multi-Vitamin, 2 tablespoons of hemp...

Rapha Gentleman's Race
Keep your eyes on twitter and Rapha.cc and check out this amazing race that just went down today here in the Portland area! It was EPIC! The Chris King team was off to a fantastic start before 2 members missed a checkpoint and rode 6 miles down a 5-8% grade of gravel, and had to turn around and climb back up. That set us back 90 minutes, and combined with two flats and a gnarly crash that should...

Cielo Rapha Gentleman's Race Team Ride - Final
So it’s Sunday, August 14th, and we have 6 days before the race. We decided to do 100 miles before our tapering week, to see how we feel about 124 miles of gravel descents, gravel climbing, and sketchy pacelines. Met at 8:15 at Marine Drive and I-205, and crossed the I-205 bridge into Washington. Followed Old Highway 14 East, and had some great views and great climbs as we headed out to...
Rapha Gentleman's Race 2011
It’s getting close. Close enough that the bitter alkaline taste of fear is waiting just at the back of my throat. My legs are starting to protest every extra pedal stroke, every extra step I take, my stomach begging for as many extra calories as I’ll allow it to have. I’m finding that the reserves of youthful, nervous, excited energy I’m used to experiencing are coming in...
