People ask me what is 303? My answer before March might have been a little different answer than today. Different but not really. It’s always been about the endurance community; offering a place to find information, read stories about people, events and the industry that supports it all. Connecting everything.
Like everyone, Covid has made us re-look at things. It crushed our advertising support that centered around events primarily. We had already been moving to broadly expand our coverage and interest well beyond races and events. Last year we committed major capital to buying a media trailer with the intention of rolling to races and rides all summer. This trailer is hand built by Colorado Teardrops in Boulder. We can produce videos and photos with people standing on top. We can do interviews and podcasts inside So now what? Read more
On Friday, May 29th, Blue-Stages riders Maxx Chance and Eric Brunner and manager Grant Holicky will each be riding 200km close to home to raise money for EFAA, the Emergency Family Assistance Association. EFAA is a longstanding Boulder, Colorado organization that provides help with basic living necessities such as food and shelter to those families who need it. The organization operates a food bank and short term/transitional housing properties, offers financial assistance, as well as provides education about poverty and homelessness. Read more
I am Eric Brunner from Boulder, Colorado and a member of the BLUE Factory Team. I spent the past six weeks racing in Europe with USA cycling after winning U23 Nationals and being selected to Team USA for Cyclocross Worlds. During that time, I competed in eight races including four World Cups and culminating with the Cyclocross World Championships in Dübendorf, Switzerland
Overall, the trip felt constructive. It provided the opportunity for me to live a bit like a pro cyclist for a while, without the distractions and demands of school at the University of Colorado or daily life. Things like not having to plan my own logistics and getting massages several times per week add up and take some of the stress away. Although the first couple races were a shock, especially not having raced in Europe in a couple years, I was proud to have finished better in each consecutive World Cup of the trip. Read more
Are you sitting on your trainer, staring out the window at the snow piling up on your back deck? Or maybe you’re bundled up like the Michelin Man, taking advantage of a sucker hole in the foul weather, the one that ends in a sideways downpour with gusts that nearly blow you into the ditch. Perhaps you have surrendered to Mother Nature and have taken up swimming, skiing, or surfing Netflix from the comfort of your couch. But what you’re dreaming of is heading out in your summer jersey and shorts, logging hundreds of base miles under the warm summer sun. What would you say if I told you that you could have all that, and endless tacos too? Read more
What I love about my Adventure bike is, well, it’s simple and versatile and great for a variety of conditions. I like riding it on both paved and dirt roads, on dirt trails, in not-so-deep snow, anywhere really. Read more
