Ausilia and Sebastiano did it! After 22 days, 7 minutes and 1.000 miles through Alaska they reached the finish line of the Iditarod Trail Invitational in Nome. Congratulatione from the team – you two are simply amazing!

And then here I am back to riding with Cafe Egal in Berlin. Chris, here in the front, has a sweet little cafe/bike shop with a name that roughly translates into Cafe “Who Gives a Shit.” Anyways, the Sunday group rides have started back up again now that I am back after Greek training camp, which will lead up to racing the Berlin Velothon in June with Cafe Egal.
And here is the view from 1100 meters over Thessaloniki after a 2.5 hour gnarly off road climb. Macadonia is like a poor man’s Catalunya!
Just a quick pic in my quickly fading 2012 BWRE Gear with the Macadonian mountains (playground?) in the background. Looking forward to some new gear this year!
I spent two weeks in Greece between late february and early march 2013 and brought my 29er with me. Having a 29er with cross tires and a gps opened up some amazing routes I have been lusting after for years. In all I put in about 500 kilometers with around 8km climbing in 10 days of riding.
After a long 2012 that ended with 4 months of fast riding with the kansas state university team I took a couple months off and this camp was a great way to “wake up” for 2013. Looking forward to a great 2013!
Our two friends from Italy right now work themselves through the Iditarod Trail Invitational in Alaska. Yes, Alaska. Yes, in March. And: It’s 1.000 miles long.
The two are doing an incredible job out there in the wilderness. Today they crossed the 350-miles-mark. Auslia and Seba – we are with you, you’ll make it!!!
One of our wonderful sponsors has this cool new video advertising the Supernova Airstream light. Great for bars or helmets.
I should be sporting one for Schlaflos im Sattel this year too. Currently, I have a dyno powered E3 (off road model) light and absolutely love the ease of use and the fact that I NEVER have to worry about batteries running out.
