DSGP 2015 Round 4 – Masters & SS Video

The Masters and SS race seems to be the only one I can really cover well this year. Here is hopefully one of two videos (the Monroe video is currently in limbo and might just be cannibalized into a “DSGP 2015 Greatest Hits” video) of those pesky old guys and the knuckle-dragging one coggers. Full…

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…

Come On and Cross!

This was supposed to come out before the first NOLA CX practice, but injuries and road trips got in the way. While the season is now officially underway, I still urge you to come on out and participate in the best thing on two wheels: cyclocross!  

DSGP #3 – Monroe

Rich and I have realized that when we raced first in the 4/5s last year, we could A) party more B) get better coverage of the rest of the race day. So please enjoy this small sampling of photos from the 4/5 race, that I admit, are biased towards my teammates on Rouler Racing. Peep…

DSGP2014 #2 – Covington // Guest Gallery by Rhea Aldridge

Gazooks! Illustrious photographer, Rhea Aldridge, had forgotten to grab her camera before heading up to DSGP2014 #2! I was more than happy to lend her mine as I pretended to play the part of serious bike racer and lo and behold she did not disappoint! Enjoy these amazing shots of DSGP #2 and the 1/2/3 race. Give…

SWAMPLOCROSS!

CX is now. There is no more #crossiscoming, there is no more #therewillbemud. Cross is here and mud is being. On Sunday, October 12, Semi-Tough and Yeah You Ride officially launched New Orleans cyclocross with an unofficial swamp-jammin’, beer-chuggin’, bike-racin’, family friendly gnar-fest. The course was comprised largely of the City Park Singletrack, and was…

New Orleans Women’s 100K

On July 20th, I was lucky to tag along with the New Orleans chapter of the Rapha Women’s 100K. Steamy mid-summer temps and epic downpours, these women were truly badass! Thanks to Murat Celebi for letting me stand all over his front seat and commandeer his vehicle as the official “media wagon”. Note: I don’t…

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…

Break Away at the Lake: The Harbor Master Criterium

From Juniors to Cat 1’s, the inaugural Harbor Master Criterium provided a full day of high-intensity crit racing. Fields filled out nicely as racers toed the line to throw down for over $2700 in cash and prizes. As temperatures rose, lap times fell and purses swelled. A little breeze and a lot of adrenaline went…

DSGP Race No. 1 // New Orleans // Results + Recap

Late Friday night, the finishing touches were put on the cyclocross course that Rouler Racing and Semi-Tough Cycling Club had been building since summer on the abandoned golf course in City Park. With great pride, 1.7 miles of swampy chicanery, off-camber turns, mud, sand, and grass was rolled out to be rolled on. Astounding numbers…
