Big mountain bike races are getting more popular. I dont’ know if I will do one soon, but many people are doing them. There are more and more race offerings, from 100 mile races to complete stage races where you compete for 7 days straight on a mountain bike.

Possibly over the Alps or Rockies. Or South Africa. Or just through the state forest.

Out with the old, in with the new January 7, 2009

I’d be surprised if any mountain biker out there never heard of the Trek Volkswagen team. It was home to some of the best national and regional riders – Jeremiah Bishop, Chris Eatough, Susan Haywood, and Lea Davison – just to name a few.

Well at the last minute, VW pulled out of their contract or whatever, meaning no Trek VW team for 2009! It’s crazy! Top pros are found without jobs!

This was an unexpected outcome of the big economic slump!

But good news – there’s an interesting new road team called Ten Speed Drive / Ellsworth. Funny thing, it’s a road team. I’m familiar with the Ellsworth full-suspension mountain bikes, they are sweet.

But Ellsworth actually make a road bike too!!

And the Ten Speed Drive team is doing cool stuff for the environment, so that’s cool.

Oh yes, the best gloves for the winter. Whether you go with lobster gloves or pogies or regular old gloves, keep your hands warm and you’ll be much more comfortable.

Where do you learn about these winter gloves? Lobster Gloves .com

Yes, that’s the one resource out there that’s dedicated to lobster gloves. Well, they also talk about pogies and other ways to keep your hands warm in the winter, but that’s all good stuff too.

So yeah, for cold weather, go with lobster gloves!
