2016 USA Cyclocross National Championship

Racer: Cory Rimmer

This year the 2016 Cyclocross Nationals were held in Asheville, Nc on the Biltmore Estate. As reviews from the earlier races came in on how the course was, I became excited as the word was technical. This was going to suit my strengths and I needed all the help I could get. Just the weekend before I was to race nationals, I tested my legs at the UCI race in Kingsport, Tn. The results were very disappointing to say the least. There was no power to be found and I believe I was still not recovered from my last training block. So for the week leading up to my race on Friday, I took it very easy, only doing a few short openers the day before my race.

King of Pisgah

Double Dare and King of Pisgah Series
A Race Report

My teeth are chattering. I'm currently trying to mount my helmet light but my hands are shaking from the cold. I can't figure out why I'm having such difficultly mounting the light. My brain must be mush from the fatigue. I smile and think that I was built for these crazy rides. My mind wanders back to how I started these events.

Cory Rimmer Collegiate Nats Write Up

Racer: Cory Rimmer

On the weekend of October 24th nearly every collegiate mountain biker in the U.S would come together at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia to prove their worth. Going into any national race always makes me nervous. I always wonder whom I’m racing and how fast they are going to be, this time was a little deferent however. I knew I could do well, but how well was the question. I tried not to think about it a lot. I knew I had put in the time on the bike and worrying about it is not going to change the out come. I treated these races like any other. No special prep, diet or morning routine, I just did my thing.

Summer Wrap-Up!

Racer: Cory Rimmer

It has been an eventful summer both on and off the bike! On the bike there has been a lot of exciting riding and racing happening. There were plenty of highs and a few lows. I had some big wins at the Karl’s Kaleidoscope 50 milers and the Iron Mountain 100k. Both of these races attracted riders with much more talent me.

2015 Pisgah Stage Race

Racer: Cory Rimmer

The 2015 edition of the Pisgah Stage Race saw a change of date and a change of conditions for previous years. With the early spring date of April 14-18, came early spring rainstorms. This, with some of the most technical trails in the Southeast, gave way to awesome, challenging and wild racing!

Stage 1 was a slow start for myself. I wasn’t able to get a ride in the day before and I believe that contributed to the stale legs I was experiencing. Lucky the wet conditions helped me from losing too much time, as I was feeling pretty comfortable on the downhills. To my surprise I was third overall on the day for the enduro category, this was a nice pick-me-up after my disappointing fifth place finish in the overall.

March Madness

Racer: Cory Rimmer

The madness of March is in full swing this year. Bike building, last big blocks of training and dusting the cobwebs off for the first races of the year, so far March has been treating me well. I received my sweet Kona Hei Hei frame and built it up with the best, Nox wheels and TruckerCo Components. Once I got the new whip sorted out, it was time to head down south to Georgia for the first race of the year. The famous Snake Creek Gap Time Trial is well known in the south. It’s a tough 34-mile point A to point B TT on some of the roughest single track around. What’s cool about this race is you pay one entry fee and you get to race three times; once in January, once in February and the final race takes place in March.

Hoedown At Love Valley Roubaix

Racer: Scott Rusinko

Spring has finally arrived in Western North Carolina, and I can’t be happier to put winter’s cold blast in my rear view mirror. Apparently, Mother Nature didn’t get the memo, because at the start of Saturday’s Love Valley Roubaix, temperatures were below freezing, and so was I.

Trial By Fire - True Grit Epic

Racer: Scott Rusinko

True Grit Epic loomed large on my calendar. The idea of traveling to Utah to race the NUE season opener was met with excitement and anxiety. The best way I can imagine to ruin a good vacation is to race 90 miles of Mohave Desert rocks and sand. I had never raced an NUE event, and had no real expectations, aside from gaining experience and new friends. Mostly, I wanted to finish the race.

True Grit Epic 100

Racer: Barnabas Froystad

What I love most about the bicycle are the journeys it can take you on and the people that you meet along the way. So when my friends proposed we head to St. George Utah to race the True Grit 100, I instantly knew I had to go. What a great opportunity for me to see the Mojave desert and put some winter fitness to use in the first race of the National Ultra Endurance Series. Traveling and rooming with fellow beast coasters Keck, Scott, and Gordon proved to be a great time with positive support and lots of laughs.
