Ion Göttlich is a real monster on the track. The Italian sprinter is the brain child of a South African animator named Claudio Pavan and Bicycling Magazine just did a great interview with him. Head on over to check it out.
It’s been a while since Kyle, Sean and I have ridden from the early morning til sundown. Particularly because of the shorter winter days. When we saw the temperature was going to break 90º today, we planned a ride out to Dirt Mulholland with our friend Josh who was visiting from Austin.
Unfortunately for photos, the bright and hot mid-day sun results in less-than-ideal lighting but fortunately for photos, that just means you gotta relish the radness. Nothing crazy happened in terms of the riding, but we had fun cashing in our daylight chips on endless dirt…
Check out a few more photos below.
You’ve still got time to apply to be a Blackburn Ranger, just head over to Blackburn to apply!
Man, 85º in February ain’t bad, until it’s 105º in March!
I hope everyone spent time out on their bikes today and not on a couch eating snacks watching football.
There’s something about winter for me. I’m not sure if my body intentionally wants to take it easy before the hustle and bustle of spring hits, or if it’s just nice to sometimes dial back riding in the interest of not getting burnt out. Whatever the reason, each winter I find myself riding less and resting more. At least compared to normal frequencies. (more…)

Well, sort of.
First, I’d like to apologize for the lack of updates this week. I was told we’d have wifi each night and I’d be able to update the site (or at least be able to login to the backend and schedule posts that were drafted.) Turns out, like everything in the backcountry of Patagonia, nothing is for certain.
The good news is, once the Santa Cruz embargo is lifted, I’ll have some really insane photos to share from our 4-day excursion into the wilderness of Chile during the Rally Aysen Patagonia.
For now, here’s a photo of Cedric Gracia doing his thing, which as we learned was to keep us entertained and my trigger finger active.
Thanks for being understanding! I’ll begin posting once I’m done traveling back from Chile.
It’s that time of year again. Time for press-launches, travel and expeditions. This go-round I’ll be in Chile with Santa Cruz Bicycles, so expect lots of incredible landscapes and hopefully some steady shredding. Also, content will continue to trickle in, so don’t worry!
Have a great weekend and if you can climb towards the sky. I can’t wait to share with you the stories that are coming next week!
… in the Angeles National Forest are mind blowing. I was going to go on with some lengthy wax poetics, but I thought I’d let this photo do the talking.
