I can hardly believe it's been a month since I conquered Dex Tooke's fiendishly beautiful 1000-mile No Country for Old Men course.

I'd been living this dream for nearly two years. In October 2018 I made Bill come out and ride it with me as a 2-person relay so that we co...

Our race down in Borrego Springs (24 Hour World Championships) went off without much fuss - no big drama, not that much to write about, even, other than having a lot of fun, meeting some new friends (Dusty, Robert, and Kathy), hanging out with old friends Brian and Da...
