TR³ Mountain Bike Duathlon Overall Results October 23, 2010Posted by Dave Of Prescott in Events.

Today was the first TR³ Mountain Bike Duathlon in Prescott, AZ. We had to scramble to change the biking leg at the last-minute because of rains that turned the Legacy single track to black death mud.
More on that when I have the energy to write more, it has been a LONG day!
These are just the overall results, the legs splits will follow within a couple of days.

Official Results of the Go! Off Road Duathlon March 17, 2009Posted by Dave Of Prescott in Adventure Racing, Events, Mountain Biking, Trail Running.

It took me a couple of nights to sift through the time sheets and get it all put to spreadsheet, but I am happy to announce that the Official Results, including splits are now posted on the GORD site.
You may remember that I wrote last week that I thought a 40 minute split would be hard to do on this course? Well, I was being a piker!! There were 4 racers under 40 minutes, and the two top men did it in 34 and some change…..seeing as how my best is just under 45, now I am going to have to go back out there and try it again!
There were some seriously strong athletes out there on Saturday, and it was really neat to see people of ALL levels having a great time and interacting at a fun event.
Another Coastal Challenge Scoop February 2, 2009Posted by Dave Of Prescott in Adventure Recreation, Events, extreme sports, Trail Running.

Once again, Jacquiline Windh has an update posted far ahead of the Coastal Challenge website. Her story about Day 2 includes a photo of my teammate Jonea. Jonea is racing as part of Robyn Benincasa’s Project Athena team.
Having raced with her many times, I can tell that she is doing a little suffering here. But there is one thing about her, she has got tons of endurance!
The Coastal Challenge website has still not delivered on it web sites promises of a race tracker and an updated leaderboard…..dissapointing to say the least. And they are not timely on the daily race news either, here it is 11:15pm and they still have nothing up for today.
Report from The Coastal Challenge – sort of! February 2, 2009Posted by Dave Of Prescott in Adventure Recreation, Events, extreme sports, Trail Running.

Well, I am a little frustrated. The Coastal Challenge website was supposed to have live updates, leaderboard, and all kinds of other cool stuff so we could watch our favorite teams while they suffered competed. NOT! At least not as of the time of this blog post.
But, fear not! I have located an article by Jacqueline Windh who just happened to have spent the day with Project Athena’s own Robyn Benincasa. As you know my own Adventure Racing teammate Jonea Mounsey is one of the Project Athena teams with Robyn.
Thanks Jacquiline for the news! Here is Jacquiline’s site, please check it out.

Here is a quick overview of the History of Adventure Racing, that I found just tag surfing this today. While it only really covers the big expedition events, it is a decent primmer.
Wikipedia has a much more extensive article about AR, and it even has a link to a race that I am the director of, the Gilmore Adventure Race. Speaking of Wiki, we all know not to trust it as a reliable source right? That is because anyone can go onto it and change info at any time…so reading from it is more like saying, “Someon told me……” Lots of good info in Wiki, just use other sources to verify it!
Also found this article called Why I love Adventure Racing, and You Should Too! This is a re-publication of an article that world class adventure racer and all around AR stud Ian Adamson wrote a while back.
Getting Ready for the New Season January 15, 2009Posted by Dave Of Prescott in Events, Just Stuff, Mountain Biking.

Many of you are getting ready for the new mountain biking season. In fact some of you are going down to race in the first MBAA race of the year at White Tanks this Saturday.
Maybe you are signed up for the off road duathlon and don’t know exactly what to expect or how to prepare. Well, I was perusing some articles and blogs, and found this one titled, Getting Ready for a Mountain Bike Race.
Even if you are not thinking of any particular event, the best thing you can do is just get out there and ride. I say out there, because I have been on rides with people who have put hours and hours in on a spin bike or stationary trainer, but can barely stay upright on a bike. There is nothing like the real thing.
Staying Fit While Traveling February 26, 2008Posted by Dave Of Prescott in Adventure Recreation.

If you search on ways to stay fit while traveling you will get a whole gaggle of things to read. For me, I try to find ways to do the things I do at home. I am not a gym workout person, I like to hike, mountain bike, and various other outdoor pursuits. It is because of this, that I started my company, Go! Adventure Recreation, in Prescott, AZ. Before I travel, I try to find out if someone in the city I will be in offers a way for me to get outside to workout. Booking a guided mountain bike ride is a super way to discover the area you are visiting, and not have to worry about gear or transportation or have any knowledge of local trails. The Guide picks you up at the hotel, takes you out to the trail that they have selected for you based on your self described fitness level and skills, they fit you to a bike, give you helmet and gloves, then lead you out on a ride! When it is over, they deliver you back to your hotel, and you can get back to the business you came to do with a renewed vigor having just had the type of exercise that you are accustomed to at home.
