Ever Wonder What a Bad Mousse Looks Like?

Ever Wonder What a Bad Mousse Looks Like?

I’ve never run bibs before, but I recently bought a used bike with one installed the rear and thought I’d throw on a new tire over the weekend. After wrestling that SOB off the rim, I was treated to a pile of degraded foam rubber. Looks like the previous owner didn’t bother to lube the bib before installing it. Didn’t even bother to install a rim strip or duct tape the rim either. Bummer… Oh well, new one on...

How Lame am I…?

How Lame am I…?

Last post in January? Laaaame. Now that that’s over with, on to some updates. My excuse for no recent updates is that my helmet cam has been fritzing out at the last couple of races. So, I didn’t have any new footage to post. Plus I’ve been super busy. Lots going on in the Webe Racing series. The first couple of races went pretty good. I moved over to the Open-A class for the season after winning the 40-A class last year. Open A is...

With a library of nearly 100 training videos, his site provides a very comprehensive platform for improving your riding skills. There’s also an excellent archive of helpful training documents that...

R.I.P Kurt Caselli (1983 – 2013)

R.I.P Kurt Caselli (1983 – 2013)

One of my favorite riders, Kurt Caselli died yesterday racing at the Baja 1000. In my opinion, Kurt was one of the most exciting off-road riders in the industry. His helmet cam videos were almost scary to watch, as he seemed to push the limits and beyond when it came to desert racing. I guess we all know the risks inherent to dirt bike racing, but it’s still a shock when something like this happens. Very sad. A tribute video to the...

2013 Webe Racing – Española, Round #8

2013 Webe Racing – Española, Round #8

Last weekend was the final race of the 2013 Webe Racing series at Española, NM. The dirt was great from previous rains, and the temps were perfect! I was able to get the win at Saturday’s RMEC enduro. The 125 was a blast to ride! I was pretty cooked for Sunday’s race but still managed a 3rd place. The whoops were relentless!! Ben Wagenman pretty much smoked us with an almost 4 minute lead, and Matt Valdez caught me sleeping on...

Webe Racing Monte Vista 2013

Webe Racing Monte Vista 2013

Sometimes you just stink it up. That was the case last weekend at Monte Vista… I hadn’t really ridden in the last few weeks due to a garage remodeling project, and it was evident within the first half-a-lap on Saturday. I had such bad arm pump I couldn’t even pull in the clutch. Sunday wasn’t much better, although I attempted to warm up a little bit more before launching into race mode. Really what slowed me down on Sunday was...

2013 Snowshoe Enduro – Boockliff Rattlers and RMEC

2013 Snowshoe Enduro – Boockliff Rattlers and RMEC

Last weekend was one of the sweetest races I’ve ever done! The Bookcliff Rattlers/RMEC hosted the 2013 Snowshoe enduro near Montrose, CO and the conditions couldn’t have been more perfect! With rain storms over the last several days, the dirt was dark and loamy and the underbrush was green and lush – pure perfection. I opted to ride the 350 because spark arrestors were required. The bike paired well with the technical,...

2013 Webe Racing – Powderhorn, Round #4

2013 Webe Racing – Powderhorn, Round #4

This last weekend was Round #4 of the Webe Racing series at Powderhorn Ski area near Grand Junction, CO. This was the biggest turnout of the season, so far. We had 17 riders on our row of the A-40 class. As to be expected, much of the new course was lined with rocks and passing was limited. There were also a few muddy water crossings that became extremely slick as the race went on. This killed my run of clean laps – on lap 5 I got...

2013 Webe Racing Round #2 – Bullhollow, UT Race Report

2013 Webe Racing Round #2 – Bullhollow, UT Race Report

Good race this weekend! Without a drop of moisture for weeks, the course was the typical dust pit. It was a blessing and a curse. If you were able to get a good start and get out front, you could lay down a blinding layer for the guy behind you. But even being out front didn’t guarantee clean air. Lappers made things difficult as the course was fairly tight and most riders weren’t too keen on letting anyone behind them pass and...
