​(Reported by Martin) This paid ride benefits the Kickapoo Rails-to-Trails conversion, a worthy cause! Mike B., Rob H., Martin, Jeff D., Alex, and Neil F. (at least) showed up. I ended up with 124 miles at 19.5 mph moving speed, not too bad in the 90 F heat.

Martin’s report. The short: I did this on the vapors of bike fitness from RAAM, without any significant run training. The result was better than my 2014 IM WI! Nonetheless, my advice is not to run a marathon without run training. I felt SORE after that run!

Track season update & keirin state champs report

posted on Aug 05 2016 by Chris Kirkham

I think I’ve had a very successful first year on the track.  I got 2nd in a points race on my very first race day in the 5s, and on my first day in cat 4, I won a race, beating out a very strong guy who is a cat 3 on the road (with the points to be a 2) who has won over half his races on the track.  I told myself that this season was about getting experience and seeing which events I like, and which I’m good at.  I hoped that I would be better at the endurance events (scratch, points, elimination, etc.) as that wouldn’t require me to make many changes to my training routine.  Ho
