Happy to announce that I’m joining enduranceWERX as an associate coach. My main job in 2015 will be to coach the Lucarelli and Castaldi team. But I am also accepting a limited number of private coaching clients. 
I’ve been working on this for a while and I’m really excited to have it start coming together.

Won a local race this weekend. It was fun. I wrote about it here. 

Question dump. Top to bottom.
That’s a good question. A new bike is always fun and depending on what you have now it could make a big difference. But let’s assume you have something functional in which case the second option will certainly buy you more speed an progress in the long term. 
I’ll try and get some words with Cam this weekend. 
The chance of us getting one is zero.
52/36 with a 25 out back.

That’s a great question. I kind of don’t want to admit it but I’d love to be sponsored by Rapha. They support cross and road. Plus getting to travel to beautiful places to ride bikes appeals to my sensibilities. But realistically the best sponsors are the ones that want to support you for being you and I have that so I’m not exactly looking. 
Like twice in a day? Yes. Twice in general? Also yes and yes, it will eventually cause you to burn out. 
What did they write that was so funny? 
OMG YES. Go to Hanah Foods on Grand and Union and get a weirdly named sandwich of your choice. Go to Grahm Ave Meats and Deli on Grahm and buy an Italian sub from the son of the old owner who apparently died in prison due to money laundering or something. It’s right near King Kog which you should also visit.

Thanks. You sound like my editor. I still don’t really enjoy race report style writing that much but I have been getting a very positive response to it so… 
Thanks. 
They’re bad news.
Incorrect number placement. Because having three numbers pinned to your skin suit is just not enough.

Happy Messenger Appreciation day! Here are some pictures I took in 2007 when I was making way more money riding my bike then I did racing it.

Like meeting any other handsome gentleman who is witty and shares many of the same interests as your self. 
I file tread tubular pumped up to maybe 35-40 would be ideal. I ran 32c Pasela clinchers at like 45 and it was fine. One guy in the top ten was on a road bike with 28c tires but only because he broke his cross bike the week before. 
Go talk to Recycle a Bike or Bikes not Bombs or Times Up or something similar in your town and cobble something together. 
I don’t think about it. My cross work outs are short and to the point. I get on the bike, I go do it and I’m done. The racing is the exciting stuff.
