ABOUT THIS EPISODE

 

Mountain bike racing in Wyoming? A 24-hour race in Wyoming? Yes to both. Evan O’Toole is one of the directors of the new Two Moon 24 at Glendo State Park in East Central Wyoming. Glendo State Park is home to some new, great singletrack and is conveniently located off of I-25 only 200 miles north of Denver.

Evan is a long time Mountain Bike Radio listener, so it’s great to have him as a guest and have him share information about Wyoming’s new 24 hour mountain bike race.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

 While in Cable, WI Ben and Matt stop by on location of the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival in order to pick Gary Crandall’s brain. After racing the first edition and getting a top 20 finish, Gary stumbled into this position due to a little free time on his hands and the ability to run a manual typewriter. Tune in to hear the evolution of the race and bikes, his induction in to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, and how he has come to run the race for 34 of the 35 years it has been going.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Bobby Wintle race director of Land Run 100 and owner of District Bicycles sits down with Matt to discuss the 2017 Land Run 100. They cover how the race has grown and transformed over the last 5 years, why Bobby and Crystal chose to #unlearnpavement, and what to expect in 2017 at the Land Run 100.

About Land Run 100:

From Bobby "The roads in which you will be riding have a history and a soul that breathes deep. These roads are infinitely red, unforgiving, and unique. On April 22, 1889, the cannons fired signaling the first Land Run that opened up the Unassigned Lands of the Oklahoma Territory, which included Stillwater, OK the home and start/finish line of the Land Run 100. Oklahoma may seem like the last place you would consider traveling to for an event…until now. If you love roads that change every time you ride them, and seem to take on their own personality, Land Run 100 is the event for you."

Registration will open on Saturday, November 19th and will be limited to a combined field total of 1,000 participants for the 100 and 50 mile option. If registation is full please add yourself the wait list as registered people will inevitably have conflicts that arise between now and race day.  For the first time ever the midway checkpoint will be in Guthrie, OK on a course that is 100% planned, preridden, and approved by Bobby.

If you have any ideas for future guests or episodes, please contact us at ben@mountainbikeradio.com.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Christy Little and Brianna Roth have had an unbelievable and challenging last three months. They’ve gone through a potentially deadly cliff fall and dealt with significant family illness, all while just living in New Zealand for a short time.

Rather than shut down and withdraw, they’ve met the challenges head on and now are embarking on a trip of a lifetime to raise money. Ben chats with Christy and Brianna about what they’ve been going through and what they plan to do.

If you have any ideas for future guests or episodes, please contact us atben@mountainbikeradio.com.

CHRISTY & BRIANNA’S PURPOSE

Our hope is to inspire, to raise funds, and to share our story. We want to inspire people, no matter what challenges they have faced or are facing, to get outside and find joy and beauty in the midst of hardship. My mom is the inspiration for this mission as she was recently diagnosed with b-cell lymphoma and is undergoing chemotherapy. We are hoping to raise funds for the King’s Fold Retreat Center (in the Canadian Rockies) which provides place of refuge for so many facing challenges in life. For the past 18 years, they have hosted a week-long retreat several times throughout the year specifically for cancer patients. We want to share our story and journey through cancer and the hope and joy that riding a bicycle can bring!

CHRISTY & BRIANNA’S STORY

We are best friends who love life, have a passion to be outdoors and to explore this amazing world on two wheels, and who have both been impacted by cancer. Our friendship began in South Africa on an Athletes in Action service trip where we played soccer with the SA National team and put on soccer camps in poverty stricken townships. Since then we have supported each other through the highs and lows of life and have shared some of the most epic adventures together throughout the world. We are both passionate mountain bikers who have competed in mtb racing in North America. Last December, we moved to New Zealand to have the opportunity to adventure on two wheels and mtb race in NZ for a year.

Unfortunately, our time had to come to a screeching halt a few months into NZ as Bri’s mom was diagnosed with cancer and Christian broke her back after falling 100ft off a mountain while biking. After nearly 100ft of tumbling head over heals, she came to a complete stop “only by the power of God’s hand and choosing for me to live.” She was heli-evaced out of one of the most remote places in the country, and learned that she had fractured her spine in two places, and compressed three vertebrae completely on top of each other. We will never forget that day and it has brought us closer in our friendship in a way that only a life and death experience can. Christian is now on the road to recovery and is planning on making a remarkable comeback to take on this challenge!

After all this unfolded in NZ, Bri went home to Canada to support her mom through her journey with cancer and Christian returned to Colorado to focus on healing her back around the support of family and friends. Christian lost someone very close to her many years ago when her cousin she grew up with died of cancer at 19yo after battling cancer throughout his adolescence. This has impacted her life in a big way and is an inspiration for her to do this ride.

Bri’s mom is in the fight of her life but we are holding hope that she is going to be a survivor! She is a resilient women and has a quiet strength about her that everyone seems to notice. Not once has she felt sorry for herself, and in fact continues to have a heart to serve her community and friends as she battles cancer. She loves being outside and in the mountains. Riding a bicycle has been a passion of her’s for many years and at the beginning of her chemotherapy treatment, she decided that her symbol of hope throughout treatment was going to be a bicycle; that she will soon be able to get back on the bike and ride to her heart’s content. And we are hopeful she will!

THE PURPOSE

This September, we will be attempting to mountain bike through the Alps from Mont Blanc (Chamonix, France) to the Matterhorn (Zermatt, Switzerland) and finishing in the Aosta Valley (Italy). This will take us through some of the highest mountain passes in Europe and will undoubtedly be the most challenging bike ride we’ve ever done. We are taking on this ride in honour of my mom and her desire to ride her bicycle again. We are hoping that this challenge will inspire others to get outside and go for a ride, and raise a money for the Kings Fold Cancer Retreat Center.

We are planning to make a short documentary of this journey and will also post to our FB along our purpose driven ride. We would be stoked if you would like to come alongside us as we venture through the Alps by checking out our page and hope you will share with others as we hope our venture encourages and inspires those impacted by cancer or any hardship in life.

Holding hope and riding with purpose!
– Brianna and Christian

The X100 is the Ultimate Mountain Bike Race and Fat Tire Festival! For 2016, they have a venue change and the race starts and finishes at the spectacular Timber Ridge RV and Resort, just a few minutes east of Traverse City, Michigan.  The race includes a 100 mile individual, 100 mile relay style 3 person team, 50 mile, and 25 mile race consisting of mostly twisting technical single track that winds in and out of county gravel roads, two tracks and fire roads.

Riders roll through the most beautiful terrain Michigan has to offer: deep woods and steep hills dotted with pristine lakes, streams and ponds. The X100 has some the most challenging sections of raw organic terrain and killer cross-country riding built by mountain bikers who have a passion for adventure, and – until now – known only by die-hard locals.
