Had one of my best races ever up the hill climb on the final day of Super Tour Finals today.  Lars and I were in a close battle for the Super Tour Distance Title ($2,000 cash prize).  I started the race with a 7 point lead, but Lars has beaten me in every skate race [...]

I have skied in some really awesome places. On snow in Hawaii, Norway, Methow, Italy, Hayward. 15km in the Windy City was unlike anything else.  Watt and a few others I know have roller skied Vegas, I am guessing that few have ever skied downtown Chicago. Karl and I flew into Chicago after Climb to [...]
