|Bad Ass Beard Ice after a win at Pando Ski Area|
21 total races, 5 podiums and 2 wins.
The season kicked off back in January with a 5 race Michigan Fat Bike Race Series. Frozen toes, fingers and water bottles were the theme riding slowly and tipping all over Pando, Felt Mansion, Rolling Hills, and Addison Oaks. I finished the overall series in 2nd place following a close win at the season finale at Pando Ski Area.

I finished the Melting Man, Lowell 50 and Barry Roubaix with grit in my teeth. The tires were skinny. The roads were slick. The beers were cold.
Yankee was next, followed closely by Fort Custer. WSI put together a fundraiser for a Youth Cycling Program called “Don’t Stop Fixing.” Serving free burgers and hot dogs with a smile raised over $250 for the program, funding repair stands, tools and replacement parts for a group of At-Risk youth in Battle Creek.

Lumberjack was the Lumberjack. 100 miles of rolling hills, roots and suck. Every finisher was given a stainless pint glass. I drink from that goblet as if I were the king of all Michigan singletrack.
My 2nd of two wins came in July at the Tri Del Sol Duathlon. I partnered with my wicked fast running nephew Levi for the relay and we ate the competition’s lunch while they watched.
