Mudfest 2012, a.k.a. Rome Winter Cyclocross

Kelly and I rolled up to David Heath's farm in Rome, GA on the morning of December 30th, wondering the frozen ground would evolve as the day went on. It had rained quite a bit in the week before the race, and then a good freeze set in the afternoon before, hitting 29 degrees by late afternoon. But, as you see below, the temperatures were on their way up so we had no idea what was in store for us. Her race was at 10 and mine was at 10:45... and that 45 minutes made a big difference.

I had found out about this race because Gabriel had recently gotten involved in an organization based out of Nashville called, “Ride For Reading.” It is a group who hosts book drives (book rides) and various other fundraisers including this race for kids at underprivileged elementary schools. Eating doughnuts and racing mountain bikes to benefit kids is a pretty kick arse way to spend one’s Saturday.

2012: The year of TSE -- mustaches and manifest destiny

Yea... That's right. I said "manifest destiny". Westwards the wagons. I lived in four states this year and now I'm back in Colorado. The pull of the West remains. 

Serenbe CX by Faster Mustache

On December 2nd Faster Mustache hosted the 10th race in the Georgia Cross Race Series. The race was hosted at Serenbe Farms for the 3rd year in a row and, once again, Faster Mustache proved that we know how to host an event! Over 150 people lined up to race and hundreds more were there to support and cheer on the racers for what was a good time had by all. Faster Mustache turned cow pastures and hinter land into a rockin, rollin center of bike racin craziness, complete with bikes, beer, cows and corral.

We competed in events all across the south, focusing mostly on mountain biking but also track, cyclocross, and alleycat races.

Angel's House

Many of you might remember Creative Loafing's Cover Story, The High Price of Hope, written about Angel's journey to try and purchase/renovate a home in Adair Park. The link for the CL story isn't working, otherwise I'd link to it here.

He's just posted a video explaining the situation and asking for help to keep the project moving. It's a great cause and no amount of donations could really repay Angel for the things he's done for Atlanta. Check out the video and spread the word:
