Summer Left... And No One Said A Word?



Colorado is burly turf.... one minute your shredding bone dry single track.



The next, you are drying your vans out by the fire.



You know you don't have an internet connection when....



So "Rad" Ross just got back from Oktoberfest... we had a chance to check out his sweet ride before he left on his adventure....

Real Smart.... Real Smart



We headed up to the mountains for a little man time and Pete's bachelor party....

You get a little cabin fever when it snows a foot and all you brought was a hoodie.



Will may have just won the Univex Grand Prix but his stove surfin skillz could use some work!

I Read More Maps Than Books

Is the daily grind of the 9 to 5 keeping you off the saddle? You are not alone....



Two years ago I started a company specializing in helping pro athletes, outdoor reps, and enthusiasts clean out their closets and put their gear into the hands of those who would put it to use.

For 4 years I raced with out a 9 to 5... eating powerbars and selling my worldly possesions online.

Today, I have a desk, a business card, 5 employees and a rolodex of clients. Check out The Pro's Closet and save our seller id as our inventory is constantly changing.

Changing Of The Guard



It's legit, fall is here and in Colorado this means dealing with the unpredictable mountain weather.



One minute your sweating from your eyeballs... the next your stealing newspaper from random mailboxes and stuffing your jersey for warmth.



Tis' the season when you come back from your ride and:

Your hands are too cold to turn the door knob or to unzip your jersey

When your body itches for a good 10 minutes as your body temperature raises in the shower

Or you have felt your kidneys shake for so long, you start to laugh out loud....

Good times!

Control + Alt + Delete



It was nearly 3 weeks since my last day in the saddle and within 10 minutes of my ride I was consumed with visions for next season....

The bike has a way of grabbing your soul and not letting go. It's stems deeper than the ride itself. It's the conversations, the adventures, the daily escape from reality that gives us a purpose. When you start to stray away from it, it slowy finds a way of creeping back into your life and grabbing you by the nuts.



We intrupt this program......
