Burning a lung at the Weißwurst Rennen

Todays race was exceptionally hard, I was riding my single speed fat bike, the Surly Pugsley. I haven’t weighed it but I’m sure it weighs somewhere around 14 – 15 kilos. But it’S fun to ride! More so when the surface you’re riding on is soft and deep, like snow, sand and mud. Today we had no snow and no sand but a little bit of mud. I found out that the big 3,8 Nates can be leaned way over in slippery turns and still have enough traction to rail the corner.

So after four laps and 20 km I finished in 5 place in the single speed category out of 7. Not real good but then again I was at a fat disadvantage. It was fun though and that was my main goal. 2013-12-01 17.01.132013-12-01 12.13.46

Early Season in Berlin

Early Season in Berlin

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.

2013 Training Camp Continued

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!

2013 Traininglager

2013 Traininglager

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!
