    Well how can you lose with those shoes? I bought a pair and have won two races since.

    Seriously though, nice.

    all i want to do is ride through that stupid tunnel(mean this in a awesome way). i am going to have to talk to the race orgs. near me cause we need a tunnel.

    looks like you are having a blast getting it done also which is a good thing.

    7 or 8 pounds...finally training right and eating a lot healthier...I did loose the weight during Base while still going to the gym twice a week. I kept my strength while aerobic capacity increased a lot...bla bla bla...Im gonna shut up now...

    Cool fact...I took 4 minutes off from last race in July at the same course...

    Great pics and congrats on the 2nd place finish!

    How did you increase your aerobic capacity?

    There were two tunnels. We merge two race courses into one for certain races and that's the only way to do it. The tunnels pass under one of the main highways of Puerto Rico, so you can hear cars and big rigs over you while in there.

    The shoes? They are awesome!!! I also have a pair of S-Works, but I like the Northwave more due to more flexibility in some areas...

    Aerobic capacity? Lots of base while targeting zones and power (when I had a PM available). Also, underwater training...holding rocks while running underwater on the ocean floor. At a race that I though I trained properly for in the same course, I was gassed on the climbs and gasping for air on hard efforts. At the race last week, never did I felt that way and had lots of power in reserve in case of any attacks. Testing during training was done by a doctor, but honestly, I don't remember the numbers and can't find them anywhere...(rough couple of months with family issues had me taking care of a family member).

    Weather? Dry, hot, dusty, windy...

    Cornering slow and with poor form in this pic.

    2013 Race Pictures...here we go!!!-gihp6hrracephoto.jpg

    This is from the Chainbusters Green Gobbler 6hr race this past weekend. Second marathon MTB race ever. I focus on XC duration events.


    I scored 4th place expert solo male after riding steady and consistent the whole race. 6th overall out of 129 solo racers. In retrospect, I should have pushed harder through the middle couple laps of the race but I was afraid of cramping. It would have allowed me to finish the 9th lap and possibly catch 3rd place.

    You live and you learn I guess!

    All you guys wearing shorts and t-shirts.

    First race happened about a month ago, -11 C at the start. Second major Southern Ontario race is set to go this weekend (an all surface CX/MTB race). Might not look much different if the weather holds!
