Troy Seeborn wins Seward Park Category 3 Series

Heading into the last 6pm Seward race of the season I was down 2 points. The good news: I've generally been able to beat Luis (the race leader on Gene Johnson) head-to-head, although he bested me the week before leading to this late stage deficit. The bigger problem is that even if I beat him, odds are he'd be next across the line so I couldn't really count on gaining more than a single point at the finish. I knew that another strong finisher from Taco Time (Blaine) would miss this race, so that eliminated one of the few real...

Getting Dusty and Dirty at Rebecca's Private Idaho

As the road season was coming to a close, a group of riders from Seattle decided to go and ride the Rebecca's Private Idaho (RPI) in Ketchum, Idaho. I love this place so much.

Next stop LaVilla in the Dolomites

After two big days in Bormio, it was time to venture over to the other side of the mountains to Badia area where the Maratona Gran Fondo was being held. Upon arrival to our amazing place in LaVilla, we also were very lucky to get a custom kit made up for the special week from the Castelli Italy folks. The Neon Blue kit really stands out. We did three days of riding in Badia area. Day three was around the Sella Ronde. Another set of famous climbs. I had ridden this in previous years at the 2012 Giro, so I...
