Breakaway at The Esplanade: The 2016 Harbor Master Criterium

(Thanks to Murat Celebi for all the killer photos!) The sun was only just beginning to crest over The Esplanade mall as crews from the Semi-Tough Cycling Club, Yeah You Ride, and LAMBRA arrived to set up the course for the 2016 Harbor Master Criterium.

Guest Gallery: Give Me Some Sugar CX by Doogie Roux

It was a pleasure to be able to hang with the ever smoothe, Doogie Roux, this past weekend in Houston. Not only did he take a bunch of starving Rouler Racers to a fantastic ramen restaurant, he snapped a bunch of great photos too. Check ’em out below and give Doogie a follow on Instagram…

Bamacross – Brookside

As I was careening down a grass hill around 26mph into sweeping right turn for the 5th time, my hands tired from maxing out the brakes, I thought to myself, “Man, NOW I get the disc brake hype!” The Bamacross course at Brookside was tough. I feel like after every cross race I exclaim something…

Bike Crossing Grand Prix and Race du Lac.

Stage race weekends are pretty fun. Get yourself out of town, fill up on road snacks, gamble with your constitution at strange restaurant locales, try and find enough sleep in strange hotel rooms and eventually, after all the cat juggling, go ride your bike! Here are some photos that from the Bike Crossing Grand Prix and…

Tales of a Cat 4 Nothing

Last weekend was NOBC’s 43rd annual Tour de Louisiane. I did this race last year, and for all intents and purposes, it marks one year of bike racing (sanctioned, that is). Instead of a blow-by-blow of exciting Cat 4 action, I give you a list of things I’ve learned this past year: Learn the difference between…
