Borderland Beatdown: The Rockward Files E2 by DirtWireTV on YouTube


Borderland State Park in Easton, MA is just 30 minutes from my house but I almost never go there, despite the fact that it has some of the best rocky-techy mountain biking around. Here I have John Peterson and Brian Hughes give me a tour at semi-retired XC racer pace. Wheeeeze!

How To Survive An Epic Climb | Tips To Master Killer Climbs by Global Cycling Network on YouTube


If you’ve ever ridden in the mountains, you will at some point have been defeated by a climb… and sometimes it can leave you with a real fear of that climb. The question is, how to survive a killer climb like this? Here are our top tips to not just survive, but even enjoy it! In association with Haute Route Oman. GCN Winter Sale - Up To 50% Off: https://gcn.eu/18t Subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Register your interest in the GCN Club: https://gcn.eu/18s Submit your content with our new uploader: http://gcn.eu/upload Join our Facebook community: http://gcn.eu/FBCommunity Preparation - if you’re tackling a serious climb, as a one-off or part of a long ride or sportive or race - do your research! Check out the gradient and make sure you have appropriate gears. If you can, train on something similar. If you live in flatlands, look up some of our videos on how to train for climbs if you live on the flat. Look after yourself - ride smart before the climb: don’t arrive knackered as this will pretty much guarantee you find it tougher than it needs to be. So be aware of how much work you’re doing earlier in the ride. Pacing - Now, it is often worth staying with other cyclists: even if just for the motivation boost of trying to hang on. And there is a benefit from drafting uphill but not as much as on the flat. So plan for your pacing, based on the power or heart rate or effort level you know is sustainable. Try not to get carried away and ride too hard at the start just because it feels easy. You’ll pay for it later! Going over the red line is what triggers a crisis and failure for most people. Cadence - this is a personal choice but be aware that low cadence fatigues your muscles more while excessively high cadence will put more load on your cardiovascular system. So stay within normal range for you. This is why gear choice in advance is so important!

rochester mn mtb blog Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends.
