I have so many thoughts about the season that it is hard to put them all into words without over-sharing. I’ve had a bunch of new triumphs (both racing and life-wise) this season along with a number of challenges, both of which I would like to elaborate upon here. Before I do anything, I would … More Goodbye 2018. Thanks for an amazing year.
When Andrew and I were planning our cyclocross season, we found an awkward period in racing where there weren’t many races happening near us, and no C1s at all, which made traveling really far sort of not worth it (we will be driving 14 hours to the Resolution Cup C2 weekend in a few days … More See you later! We’re off to Spain
If you asked me in June of 2016 if I would have believed I would be racing World Cup cyclocross in 2018, I would say “lol what the hell is cyclocross and no.” Two point five years later and thanks to a rule that allows 16 Americans to race the American World Cups, as well … More The rookie World Cup experience

It’s Sunday night. You’re considering watching some show on Netflix that you kind of hate, and the $9 wine is open. Turn off the TV and instead, spend a mere 90 minutes listening to our first two interviews of the PSCX podcast series. Better yet, the interviews are each with a different Eric! In part … More Episode 4 part 1 and 2!
One of the most excellent things about cyclocross is that you can create your own team, race at the UCI level, and call yourselves pros.

The other most legitimately excellent thing about … More What sponsorship means and why we choose Bike Index
