The Adventure of Life has been really busy. Coming off a great sub 11 hour ride on the Salsa Mukluk Fat Bike in August I headed to Hayward Wisconsin for the Chequamegon 40 mile Fat Tire Race. This is the same course that host the famous Berkibeiner Ski race. The bike race goes from Hayward to Cable and the Ski race goes from Cable to Hayward. What an amazing event and soooo much fun. I wanted to get the Mukluk under three hours and made it to the finish line in 2 hours 52 minutes, finishing 9th in the 60-64 and 3rd in the 65-69. Next year I will try to get the Mukluk into 1st place in the 65-69 group. Game on…
It was then off to the World Senior Games in St. George, UT. In their 26th year of the games over 20,000 athletes from all over the world above the age of 50 come to compete in many Olympic venue sports for two weeks. My buddy Mick Donoff and I have come to the games for the last 6 years to compete in the two days of mountain bike competition. This year we were both defending Gold Medalist. This year I was moving up to a new age group 65-69 so I told the boys I would spot them this year and ride my Salsa Mukluk FAT Bike instead of my Trek race bike.
The first day of competition is a hill climb and down hill. The hill climb is stage with each rider going off in 30 second intervals. I had a great climb going and then dropped my chain finishing in 3rd for the bronze medal. Mick did great getting the silver metal. In the down mountain the Mukluk really rolled. I won the event for the gold medal and Mick did a great ride winning the silver metal.
This set up the second day of the events with the two lap cross country race. This is a very challenging single track, river gully, rock canyon, slick rock, stair step climbing, and screaming down mountain rocky decent 14 mile course. Who ever won the race and gold medal would also win the over-all World Championship for 2012. Mick had a great race and finished the two laps in 1 hour and 18 minutes. The Mukluk had a great race and was able to hold off Mick finishing in 1 hour and 14 minutes. I am very proud to have again done something no one have ever done, ride a FAT Bike in a World Championship, and win. The Mukluk turned a lot of heads and I gave out a lot of rides, and a lot of OMG’s.
My Salsa Mukluk Fat Bike really rolled and I am proud to be the 2012 World Senior Game Gold Metal Champion. Mick is the Silver mentalist wining all three second place events.
Bring on the Colorado Snow Bike Race season. Stay active and stay alive the adventure continues.
Love you all, and Semper Fi,
