Barbados ITU Race Report

February 21, 2012


My second Continental Cup stop of the 2012 season was the tropical Bidgetown, Barbados Pan American Cup. The 19-man field in Bridgetown was probably one of the most bizarre fields I’ve ever raced in. First off, it was very small. Second, the field included two former World Champions and a host of stud runners who […]

ITU Vina del Mar Pan American Cup Race Report I kicked off my 2012 quest to get to Olympic Trials this past weekend at an ITU points race down in Chile. Vina del Mar is a tourist town right on the coast where I have raced once before in 2010. The South American Continental Cup […]

Kicking off 2012 on the Roads

January 4, 2012


After my final race of 2011 I took a relaxing two weeks off from training and then quickly jumped back into things.

Three-peat at Gloucester & Base Training

August 8, 2011


Coming off of a pair of successful Pan-American Cups, which I tapered for, it was time for me to go “back to base”. I’ve spent the past four weeks doing lower intensity aerobic training mixed in with a few strength/core sessions per week. For the most part, it has been a boring training block, absent […]

Continued Success!! San Fran Pan-Am Cup

July 13, 2011


This past Saturday I competed in the San Francisco Continental Cup held on Treasure Island. It was the third time in my career that I have done this race. The first two tries were disasters resulting in flat tires, but the third time proved to be the charm for me. I went into the race […]

Coteau-du-lac Pan American Cup Recap

June 29, 2011


This past weekend I made the six hour drive from Lowell, MA to just outside of Montreal for the Coteau-du-lac Continental Cup. I competed in this event last year and finished in a close second to Canada’s Andrew Yorke. I knew my main competition in this race would be Jason Wilson (BAR) and last year’s […]
