Late last fall I decided that for 2015 I was going to change things up and instead of just training then racing cyclocross in the fal,l I purchased my first mountain bike in 16 years. My new plan is to do some local New England mtn bike races and maybe some of the longer type races like the Carrabassett Challenge in July, then cyclocross this fall. But for now, with the winter we’ve had, riding my mtn bike in the dirt seems to be a long way off. So, I did what everyone is doing and jumped on a fat bike demo from Bikeman.com and signed up for a fat bike race.

As we are moving to Denver in May of this year, I had some plans to “blow out” some of the big SE races this spring, since it would be my last chance at them. This included the 12 hours of Santos, the Huracan 300, PMBAR, and the Pisgah 111k/55k in May. The 12 hours of Santos went pretty well and it was a great shake down for my new 2015 Kona Raijin bike packing bike. The bike and fit were spot on, and after the 12 hour and a couple of weeks of easy and fun rides, I was ready to test myself in the Huracan 300.
