Aspen Invitational

A Bike Ride for Africa.

I have never asked for money from anyone for my bike racing career.  This is a first.  But, wait... this money has nothing to do with me.  This money is for bicycles for children and families in Africa.  Please click HERE and donate.

For several months now, I have been working steadily on helping to organize and promote the Aspen Invitational that will take place on July 21st.  Our goal with this event is to raise $300k that goes directly towards bikes in Africa.

If you want to become more involved with this event, please contact me directly- runcari "at"

We are currently looking for housing for a couple volunteers.  Ideally, we could find a vacation home someone owns and could donate for the weekend.  Is that you?  Someone you know?

Here are some photos taken in Aspen on a scouting ride that Greg and I took a couple months ago.

Change a life!  Donate.

Month of May

Started training again at the beginning of May and it's been non-stop racing since.  In mid-May I did 11 races in 16 days of all different disciplines.  Road, Crit, Track, TT.  Learning how to TT has been a new passion of mine! Next up, going to learn how to race in the dirt- short track and cross :)

Went to St. Louis for 3 days of racing during the second week of May.  Raced in my favorite local race Superior Morgul Classic- 3 day Omnium style which includes a TT, RR, and Crit.  I got down to the velodrome in Colorado Springs to get some early season track work in the legs.  All the while I had a weekly TT series.  The results for all these races were pretty good considering I was coming off my break and just raced myself into shape.

Although I am sitting in a hotel room in Chicago as I write this, it has been refreshing being back in Boulder for most of May.  Ahh!  Where does the time go?  That month flew by.
