A few photos from a great weekend on parts of our 2019 and 2020 courses. I had a great meeting with the Forest Service and the permit paperwork is scheduled to be signed and in hand shortly. Don't forget to have your friends get registered.


A throwback comparison to go along with my last post. This was taken May 25, 2015 in the cental highlands of Vietnam while scouting courses for the first Vietnam Victory Challenge stage race. That was also a very cold day.

Course Recon 2019/2020

It may not look like it but the snow is melting and race day will be here before we now it so go online and get regsitered.

Everything is on track for an amazing inaugural event that you won't want to miss. I'll be in Star Valley this weekend to check course conditions where the snow has melted. Get your friends and get signed up.

The Story of the Vietnam Victory Challenge; The Country's First International Mountain Bike Race - Cycling West - Cycling Utah

Cycling Utah has posted the story of our first event, the Vietnam Victory Challenge to their page. It's not my best writing but definitely an interesting story. Check it out and remember to get registered for the Salt River Challenge!

Q&A: Hockey player, lumberjack, world champ — Cory Wallace has done it all –

Ever since meeting Cory Wallace at our 2016 Vietnam Victory Challenge he's been my favorite pro to follow. Check out the great interview from VeloNews. Cory's race adventures are impressive but more so is his willingness to rough it on these adventures and still have a fun time doing it. Canadian Cory Wallace thrives in adventurous bike races in far-flung places like Nepal, but he isn't opposed to lining up for a major race like the Whiskey Off-Road.

Cyclingwest has put out their spring issue which features a short story about how our first event, the Vietnam Victory Challenge came to be. Check it out on page 30. Below is a photo of myself with those currently running the event as Dalat Victory Challenge, a member of the VN Cycling Federation and members of the Dalat municipal government.

I spent my childhood in Star Valley, Wyoming and he Salt River Mountains. The last three summers have been full of amazing trips in these mountains as I've done course recon to create this event. Can't wait for the snow to melt off so I can get back up there.

One of the best things about bike racing, meeting new people and making friends.

Salt River Mountains or the mountains of Dalat Vietnam? Sometimes it's hard to tell due to the pines. The 2019 SRC is waiting for you and your friends. Only 300 spots for 2019 so get registered.

Our 2019 event will be a one day event that will serve as the kick-off and media release for our 2020 stage race. The event will take place on Saturday August 24th complete with an event village/camp where you and your family can enjoy the Wyoming mountains! See you there!

2019 Absa Cape Epic | Daily News - Stage 5

Gotta love the Cape Epic!

Take a look at the recap of today's Queen Stage which saw riders battle 100km and 2850m of vertical ascent as they made their way from Oak Valley Estate to S...

Cape Epic

The cold hard realities of bike racing, especially stage racing! At least you always have your teammate to rely on and help with the chase. If you really love racing, there just isn't a more fun way to race than paired up with a buddy for several days. Best of luck to everyone at Cape Epic!

You never know what the road will throw at you and you've always got to remain tough. Matt Beers proved that today; here's today's Plascon #MicaTexToughMoments

Leaders consolidate at the Cape Epic -

Stage racing, especially with teams adds a whole new level to race strategy. Stage 1 of the Absa Cape Epic was a day of consolidation with both the top men and women growing their leads significantly after a tough 111km day which started and finished in Hermanus on Monday. Prologue winners Annika Langvad and Anna van der Breggen (Investec-songo-Specialized) increased their l...

Who will be the first to wear the leader jerseys at the 2019 Salt River Challenge? Best get registered folks!

Although the Salt River Challenge will be on the opposite side of the world from our last event, there will be a lot of similarities in the event and course design. First and foremost, it's going to be an amazing fun time with your friends!

At home with John Tomac: A legend of the trails and the road | CyclingTips

Had to share this great read. At one point I had multiple posters and magazine cut outs of Tomac on my walls. Tomac was one of a very few that inspired me in my early years of cycling. Morning comes early on Tomac ranch. Work starts before sun-up. There are crops to tend to, fields to be tilled. The horses and chickens need to be fed. There are a variety of machines to gas up and maintain, and there’s also the matter of two motocross tracks to take care of.

You know it's steep when it actually looks steep on camera. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and hopefully with a little bike time.

Dropping into the week fully pinned!

Riding a line like this is always intense, and doing with a friend like Mason Mashon is next level!

Have you seen the new Specialized Diverge? This looks like the perfect bike for just about any adventure. I can think of a lot of roads and trails in Vietnam and elsewhere that I'd love to try this thing.

We have another huge mountain stage today at the Tour de Suisse and I'm wondering whether I can bring the all-new Specialized Bicycles Diverge with me... It's fast and fun!

Amazing story that an amazing athlete has shared with us with a message of healing and understanding.

The team and I are so excited to present the Official Trailer for our latest film, Blood Road, directed by Nicholas Schrunk.

Blood Road is a journey of hope and discovery—a way for me to begin a fresh relationship with my father I lost so long ago.

The film will be available for purchase June 20.

Always great to hear about the adventures of our VVC athletes. To be one of the most accomplished marathon mountain bike racers in the world, you have to put in the work. Kona Endurance and Adventure Team rider Cory Wallace, well, he puts in the work. Year aft…

Vietnam Mountain Bike Marathon is the next big mountain bike race in Vietnam. We love the mountains of Dalat but since the VVC is now defunct our eyes turn to the mountains of Sapa! These guys have put together an amazing race and the views of Sapa provide a completely different experience from the mountains of Dalat. 2017 looks to be pretty Epic with VMBM! Keep riding everyone!!

Down, down, downhill singletrack time


Just some great looking riding to keep us all amped about getting on the trail.

New Video! Flashback to #LewisPeak last summer, what a ride! Located outside of Ogden, it features Big Ups ↗️ and Big Downs ⬇️ ... you know we like that

Meanwhile outside of Vietnam...

What a thrill!

Thanks to Kilian Bron for the submission.


Well it's January in Utah now which means my mind is longing for Dalat and prepping for the VVC. Just watched the below video and I'm pumped up to ride with nowhere to go! Hope everyone's preparations for 2017 are going well!
