2013 Riding, Racing, and Courage

Here's what I've drawn out to map what I want 2013 to look like. I'm expecting more and different styles of riding and racing than 2012. Lots of bikepacking on a Santa Cruz Highball C or soon to be super cushy Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc, more back to back giant rides and overnighters in Moab, Crested Butte, and of course Breckenridge. That place has my heart. In Autumn, I'm addressing the absenteeism of a fat bike in my life to avoid the seemingly weekly wintry defeats of dead end trails due to 6" of powder. The Arrowhead 135 is on my radar in 2014, and ultimately the Iditarod Trail Invitational in 2015. That'll be the story, I'm sticking to it, and this year will be phenomenal amounts of adventure, new beginnings, and a helluva grand time. There's no way I'm going to let myself grow old with regret, wishing I would have grabbed life by the horns while I still had the legs and the courage. Here's to living in the moment and going confidently in the direction of your dreams...

See you out there,
