Champions aren’t born. They are nurtured and supported by a community. They are also sometime ✋ mid ride by world champions. @kateplusfate celebrating her 🌈 in style on her home dirt with @nationalmtb. Thanks to @norcalleague for putting on a great event. #thefutureisfemale #rainbow🌈 #badasshumans
It’s not so often we get to celebrate world champions in our back yard but 10.20.18 we do. 17 years ago Allison Dunlap won the Women’s UCI World MTB Chapionshops. This year another American pulled on the 🌈 colors of world champ. @kateplusfate surprised the world and is leading the future of American cycling. #thefutureisfemale . . . . #Repost @norcalleague ・・・ We hope to see y’all tomorrow at the Kate Courtney celebration party! 11:30-2:00 at the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in Fairfax, CA. The event is free and everyone is invited 🤗🎉 📸: @usacycling
I don’t really off-season anymore but when I did, I made sure I did all the right things to make it worth my while! I sat down recently with former coach @thejessemoore and @ouroutdooroffice to reminisce and talk offseason days!!! Link is in my bio. #offseason #procycling #whoisthatguy #podiumbeer #itdidntstaycappedforlong
Later Kona. That was hot!!! ✌🏽💥🔥🍉
Daniel Ramos is a pilot in Puerto Rico. After the hurricane hit he dedicated his time airlifting supplies to places most devastated by the natural disaster. He has continued his work locally with the help of the Ironman Foundation. When we heard of Danny’s story @clifbar there was no question he was deserving of our free entry. We ran into him at mile 13 of the run and he was simply taking in the view with a smile on his face. Go Danny!!!
Kona is 🔥this year!!!

“15 years ago, myself and Matt Fritzinger walked into Interbike and we were laughed out of the room. We gave up by noon on the first day.” - Austin Mckinerny, ED of NICA. But they didn’t quit. They kept going. They kept believing in getting more kids on bikes. They stood for something more than just the sport of cycling. Now, as the cycling industry craves a new direction they are a shining light and have a clear call to action. If you’re a bike shop, get involved with kids in the community. If you’re a brand, let’s start showing how fun it is to ride bikes and believe in each other and the next generation of people on bikes. A rising tides lifts all boats. #morekidsonbikes
With @interbike downsizing this year in hopes to rebuild and reconnect the cycling industry, my vote is Reno was the right move. Why? Because bikes. It’s what we all have in common and as hard as everyone tries to be different the bike is the one common thread that connects us all. Fast, slow, across the country to across town the bike is a beautiful tool. We’re in this together and it’s up to us to fix it. Reno offers up the right mix of riding and accessibility that can help move things forward. Now all we need is to get the trade-show out of a convention center!!! Thanks @chrislyman for getting the 📸 and not crashing!
Santa Cruz water tanks. A well known meet up. This time passing by on mixed terrain machines while exploring the origins of @grinduro with the @girocycling crew!!! Days on days on days of fun!!! Stay dirty my friends!!

Skyline Park was my backyard as a kid. Where we would go hike, pick blackberries, have campouts and ultimately be the spot of my first mountain bike race. I cultivated my love for the dirt here and now they are bringing more fun to an already incredible park! If you’re into this kind of thing donate or become a member of the park. Lots of forward motion happening and what better way to press on than with two wheels!!! ***link in bio***
