A Look At The 2013 X100

The following is my personal experiences at the X100 (I raced the 50 mile race) this past Saturday. It is basically a re-post from my personal blog (thus it being mostly about me and my follies), I have included some additional results and information to make it at least at tad bit interesting for anyone not me. My views and comments are based on the 50 mile race. I can’t speak for what the hundie was like.

After months of anticipation, the time for the inaugural X100 race just outside of Traverse City, Michigan had finally come. As a Michigander via Pennsylvania I was pretty happy to see the state get its third 100 mile mountain bike race, joining the three year old Hanson Hills 100 and the long running Lumberjack 100 events.

Drinking and Mr. Furley

I saw a post on Facebook by Guitar Ted earlier today about Trek’s recently unveiled Farley fat bike. Someone make a mistaken comment about how the name was already taken by Raleigh for their singlespeed disc brake CX bike.

The Farley (it is assumed) takes its name from the less than thin, formerly alive actor/comedian Chris Farely of Saturday Night Live fame and such award-winning (?) films as Tommy Boy and Beverly Hills Ninja.

Impressions of the Vallnord XCO

I spent a hunk of time on Sunday watching replays of the Men’s and Women’s XCO races from Vallnord, Andorra (seemingly the closest I get to actually racing these days). I have to say I was impressed  and unimpressed with a few things. The following are my unsolicited and most likely unwanted comments, possibly written for no other reason than to use the words impressed and unimpressed as many times as I can in a blog post.

Bunny Hopping Rollers

You may remember Poolboy Matt from such past works as Shirtless Trainer Riding (Love Me, Love My Gauntness) or his appearances on MBR’s Just Riding Along, Now our friend Andrea has given the us video of Matt taking on some rollers in the garage. Once you past the cut off jean shorts you’ll have a chance to see some sweet mounting skills. Roller mounting, I want to be clear on that… he’s mounting rollers. (video after jump) Continue Reading →
