We got jokes! This cold open will blow your touring tires out! Also, how many grams can you shed to by amputating your limbs. We then discuss the Red Hook Crit, Athens Twilight and the Tour de Yorkshire.
We go into a lot of detail about the Harbor Master Criterium and all things Spring Classics with a bit of Tyre Talk thrown in for good measure. “Yogi” Boedi continues to make up phrases while T-bone uses his sling as a Clif Bar feeding trough.
So we made a podcast! After about a year of talking about it, Townsend Myers, Matt Kyte and myself sat down Friday afternoon and recorded our first episode LIVE. Let us know what you think! Should we do more? Anything you would like to hear us talk about?
DSGP Round 5, the series and district championships, is this Sunday in Natchez, LA. Before we finish off another great season, I thought I’d stoke the #hype train with select galleries from a few of the stops.
Gorgeous fall temps, a rooty and technical downhill and a leg-killing power climb, the virgin DSGP course left quite an impact on the riders. Oh, yeah, and there was a very “euro” beach section!

DSGP Round 3 – New Orleans

I’d say this course at the Fly was probably the best course we’ve had in New Orleans and I base that solely on the fact that the ground wasn’t a cypress knee minefield. Throw in the handbuilt flyover, a crazy technical feature dubbed the “cross nipple” and a healthy amount of spectators, it was just about a perfect day.
DSGP Round 4 – Ridgeland – Day 2

The Tri-County Mountain Bike Association (or TCMBA) folks once again welcomed the DSGP train to their Ridgeland trail system. Depending on what weather god you pray to, the riders were blessed (or cursed) with rain and temps in the low 50’s. Day one featured and extra long single track section that ran the course to two miles in length. On day two the course was shortened but laps were just as slow as the track became a soggy mess.
