Pan Am Championships 2015

The thud in my left hip. That is what I'm waiting for. While I'm spinning on the rollers early in the morning, with my down vest and Team USA stocking cap on, my first goal of the day, before racing even gets started, is putting my hip back where it belongs, so that left leg [...]

Starting, again. Again. Again.

When we sat down and looked at the selection criteria, trying to come up with a plan for the remainder of the season, July 31st became the deadline. We had our fingers crossed, maybe I could race in T-town at the end of June (no). Or maybe in Japan in early July (no). Or maybe [...]

Andy made a cool video of my last few sessions before leaving for Colombia, where I even rode [...]

46,707 Miles of 2014

And damn, the Rio Games are just over a year away...EEEKKK. When I look back at what I've done this year, man...it's been pretty unbelievable. Take this [...]
