Gunnison Trails quietly opened registration for the 2013 Original Growler this past weekend and within 24 hours the mountain bike race, now in its sixth year, was nearly half sold out, with more than 300 participants committed to ride either 32 or 64 miles of trails at Hartman Rocks over Memorial Day weekend.
I remember when I had one skort to wear and one pair of shorts that I bought on sale. The shorts were a perfect fit. Except when I had to take them off. And then I had to wiggle them over my hips. 13 years ago I feel like there weren’t many choices for women when it came to buying bike clothes. Well those days are over and Club Ride is a big part of what makes it so fun to get dressed to ride your bike. I recently tested the Club Ride Rale Jeans and the Cross-Wind Jacket. Now if you’re like me if you hear the word “jeans” and mountain biking well those two don’t quite seem to go together.
BOULDER, Colorado (VN) — Cycling coach Rick Crawford, an elite-level coach and collegiate cycling director, has admitted to doping two riders, one of which was Levi Leipheimer, between 1999 and 2001.
Former professional cyclist Scott Mercier is set to take the helm of the Colorado Mesa University cycling program after Crawford admitted his involvement in the doping activities to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. Crawford will stay on as head coach at CMU.
Once an oddity in the world of sport, Triathlon has become the fastest-growing participation sport in the world. Each year millions of people line-up for their chance to take on the swim-bike-run events, and each participant has a very personal reason for being there. Based on Lao-Tzu’s 2500-year-old book of wisdom, The Triathlete’s Tao Te Ching provides athletes with a tool to examine how and why they race, and what their involvement in endurance sports means in the greater context of their lives.
(Boulder, Colorado - November 27, 2012) - “Looking back at the day I blew-out both of my shoulders, I see what a relief it was,” said Lance Johnson, author of The Triathlete’s Tao Te Ching: An Endurance Athlete’s Interpretation of Lao-Tzu’s Ancient Text. “I had been training for almost two years without racing because I was constantly comparing myself to the people around me, and in a town like Boulder it’s easy to feel like you’re just not fast enough. None of the people I trained with cared, they just wanted to see me out racing with them. But over those couple years I had gone from training and racing to understand myself, to training so that I could race to define myself.”
