My next extended trip, likely in 2021, is going to be Bellingham to Pemberton with stops in between. I rode in Squamish for 3 days in 2018 and it was so great I've just wanted to go back.

This brings up another issue with Strava, GPS accuracy. I've seen different riders finish a road climb with relatively close times yet Strava reports a large time gap. Usually the difference will be in a rider using a dedicated bike computer like a Garmin ... more »

I've learned you can't take Strava seriously. I've seen climbs taken on e-bikes or in cars. There is also a local fast masters racer that uploaded his rides to his wife's account. She took all the ladies QOMs with his data. These incidents were all reported ... more »

Not exactly a racing rumor but Jeff Lenosky is off Giant in 2019. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZiXIAyQFpw

Or maybe AG is retiring and Hall is just trying to find a way to make ends meet.

After last years scoring problems, they probably just gave up on the idea.

Didn't Gwin mention something about a 4 person team in 2017? Could Remy be the fourth man on the YT Team?

I think it's obvious from Needles hashtags he's going to the new Obama/Transition team.

Wonder how the UCI is going to like those mismatched socks? Isn't Giant afraid of losing their team status?

Added reply in a thread How Far Do You Drive to Ride? 2/23/2016 5:49 AM

With a two mile road ride I can access an overgrown fire tower road that climbs the mountain to trails. It's not a bad spot to ride. The trail system we've been developing is about 25 minutes away. Better trails are 45 minutes away. Two hours puts me ... more »

I don't think that picture was taken in NZ. New Zealand doesn't have snakes. The landscape of the pic also fits in with western North Carolina where they are both based. Considering they live close by it makes sense for them to ride and train together. ... more »
