Fifty Eight Happy 420

The Storm Family Oct 10, 2010 Mesa Cyckes Burnin at the Bluff. Matt, Katie, Hank, and Gracie.

Today marks one week exactly from my most recent car meets me incident, and it was my second day back at work. Walked home yesterday via my exact bike route in exactly 1hr...I was cooking, but fuck walking is slow! I am slow and stiff, but getting better each day. Planning on some dirt church this sunday on MF if the weather/conditions hold. I have a new kona on the way too. last but not least if you don't know about my homegirl SASHA, well than you better check her out! Truly PAF!

Superior attitude, Superior state of mind!

#57 Filling the Void

So besides biking another favorite past time of yours truly is earth surfing, shreddin the gnar, surfin the white winter wavve...Snow Boarding. I have been fortunate to make it out west 10 of the past 12 years, and this past January was no exception. New scenery, mountain, and some really good friends and family to couch surf! Spent most my time at Loveland, and I can't believe all the time I've spent in CO and I hadn't shredded LL. Anyways Katie and i had a great vaca, enjoy a few pics. In other news looks like our wonderful sponsor Kona has landed Stormy another 18" 2011 Big baseball cards will not go to waste!

it's been too long, but I'm back!

It's hard to blog when all you got is an iphone?!

Almost 1 year w/o a post, and now with my new macbook I have no choice but to waste your(my) time again! A lot has happened since my last post and I will do my best to fill in the blanks. This past Wednesday morning on my normal commute I was doored traveling about 20mph right into the sharp corner of a toyota camry! Not the best way to start your day and certainly not something I would ever wish on anyone. I got really lucky for sure and I'll be back on the bike commuting hopefully by mid next week.

As far as my new 2011 big unit frame, Niner carbon fork, and truvative hbar goes they have been deemed totaled by the Hub and it looks like my dream race bike is dead before it ever began. Pretty bummed about that and also missing Bone Bender today really was pretty shitty, but a sixer of sierra nevada will cure what ales ya! I had a great 2010 and look forward to a great 2011. So far this year has seen 3 overnights on Bell, 3 Middleforks, 2 berrymans, tons of chubb, 3 CBL trips, shreddin the gnar in CO, and more road miles than I can remember. This recent accident is just a minor set back, and Im still chasing that sub 200 class.

So I'm looking to replace my mtb race bike, and dealing with the ins co. is a real bitch, but I should hopefully come out with an upgrade?! I am so bummed my Big Unit is done, but I hope to at least get another Kona...Hei Hei 29er?! We shall see

See you tomorrow.

Fify Five


This blog was started as a form of motivation, and it lead to a lifestyle of being more motivated than I have ever been. I am not trying to toot my own horn here, but I have alsays been a pretty self motivated dood. This year something clicked however, and it is no longer enough for me to just do hard things. I want to do hard things better than everyone else, and I especially want to crush you on a ss mtb. I have neglected this blog, but I have not neglected my training. I am now under 225lbs, which is something I have not been able to say in two years! It is still only May and I am starting to ride more and longer that I have ever this early in the season.

In other news I will start training for the Levi 100 next week with a series of 60+ mtb rides at CBL with a focus on steady laps and nutrition. I want to go to WI and leave with a medal, and I am focused.

I leave you with Foals new video for Spanish Sahara. I will be listening to this song on my ipod when I pass you.

It's still on.

Fifty Four

This past Saturday Katie, the Dogs, and I headed South with plans of an overnight somewhere on the OT. Once we arrived at the 32/DD lot we learned of a 275 acre controlled burn on some of the Middlefork and most of Council Bluff Lake loop. It was this that made us decide to hike to CBL, and also the idea of not having to worry about water, camp, fire, and of course toilets! This is the perfect overnight if you want a good 4-5mi hike, but are short on time. It was really amazing seeing the burn in action, and easily the largest burn I have ever witnessed. It turned out to be one of the best trips we have had, and we will be doing this one again soon!

That is all.

Fifty Three

Ouachita was one week ago today, and it was truly another epic experience. I will continue to go down to Oden each year for that race no matter what. It is an early start to the season it's easily still the toughest race I have ever done, but the greatest feeling to complete it. Go here for my Bros report, and go here for my garmin link. I have been so busy it seems and riding/hiking a ton. I can't wait for Syllamo's! Today Katie and I took the dogs on a 10mi loaded hike and we saw Taggart and Gino out enjoying the trails as well. Hope everyone has been riding, and I will see you on the trail!

Fifty Two

I have been riding a ton lately, and I am ready for Ouachita next Sunday for sure. The MTB has been a lot of fun so far this year, and it all starts next Sunday in Oden, Arkansas and at Lost Valley here in the MO for Team Seagal. With that in mind I headed over to Chinatown this am to pick up the one and only Mr. Nico Toscani with the Mound in Weldon Springs as our destination. We left the lot around 9ish and set off for some laps of next weekends race course. All in all it was a great ride and we ended up with about 24mi. The added trails at LV make it soo much more fun, and I can't wait for some night laps out there soon. Oh yeah, Nico
"the Jerk" Toscani melted his Ti seatpost with about 4mi left in our 2nd lap! It made for few good laughs and well hell of a ride to the car for Nico. Go here to see a great photo of the event HERE! Spring is coming.
