    1st Place Overall at the Tahoe-Sierra 100 Mile MTB Race

    Had a good result at this tough-as-nails 100-miler last weekend becoming the only rider to take wins in both the single speed category (2012) and now the overall as well (this past Saturday). I'm pretty stoked as I never thought I could possibly win one of these things. The feeling of everything finally coming together is pretty sweet.

    Wrote up a race report, and posted it here if you are interested in checking it out:

    Impressive. Congratulations Mr Shoelaces. I have to say I'm not surprised you won one of those monsters, though!

    Congrats! It's an accomplishment just to finish one of those races much less win it.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.
