Springtime kick in the pants...

Go over to the race blog for an update on L-M-L conditions...

This guy asked me which bike to ride...
You know your role...

See you in the AM. The smell of thawing cow poop and rotting roadkill on a Saturday morning in March, does it get much better than that?

LML Roster/ Randoms

Have you been practicing your aero fatbike roadie tuck like this guy?

Can't name yourself. Your Johnsen with an E.
Roster posted. This name wasn't on list, but went I above and beyond and got you on C5 film. Johnsen you are in.

Go over to race blog to catch list of suspects.

People asking what roads will be like. Not sure, but my recon was not quite like this...

Let the good times roll... 

Young lad weened from the ship of SPH!!!  On his own to seek and destroy.

Longhorn Steer on Mars?

Chewing his cud and chilling in the shade. No way was he moving off the trail.

Don't get up Homie, I'll go around you...

L-M-L entry is closed (unless we cut a deal).

NOTE- On Mars you don't need or want a fatbike... But 27.5 FS, now that was the ticket.

On Mars?/ L-M-L

Currently biking as close to Mars as I'm going to get (this year).

{can't get any pics to download. Think marge simpson like cacti, red rock, and singletrack}

Still on the grid, L-M-L entry is open yet. Shutting registration down soon. Note- I wont respond to your entry until the shuttle gets me back from the red planet.

Last Call for snowbiking and LML

Snow singletrack don't get no better than now...

Stay on the crust or you are doomed. Most do the ride around. Why?

Like I typed before, boardwalks with packed snow pose threats this time of year. Easy metamorphose into difficult... Prairies become the XXX. Deer dig holes which become features. Be the rutt...

RANT ON- So somehow the fatbike birkie becomes the fatbike national championship when you can't ride fatbikes on it any other day and it's groomed by ski groomers? What? That makes no sense to those of us that have been doing this nonsense for long enough to ride the legit fatbike stuff that started this crap like in above picture. In my mind Hillside is the championship. Who won it again? I forget. rant off...

Last call for Lakeville- Milltown- Lakeville (link on the side). Many of you have given me a verbal "I'm in" but yet have not sent me a signal. To be part of this rope a dope you must send me an email. I do have a list of favorite sandbaggers hanging in the weeds though.

Low temps = Good riding

When mother nature gives us this...

-10 F (in the shade)

Routine boardwalks turn to snow skinny's-

Harmless boardwalk metamorphosis into skinny
What's worse a DNF or a no show? 

Had to bail on Cuyuna Whiteout. Bikes must take back seat to reality and when work calls. Bummed certainly, but not cheated since weather is perfect for late season snow biking. It's a treat when we get late season riding like this. Winter trails go inverse. Beginner trails turn into expert lines. XX trails get tamed. 

Cuyuna report- LCR's MotoYoung and Coldbert were bridesmaids in the snowbike race. Johnsen keeps the 'ice championship' belt with the Goonsquad... 

Next up- As much snow biking as possible. A little diversion south and west. Then Lakeville-Milltown- Lakeville. What's your excuse for not showing up? Got something better to do when the trails are closed? Doubt it.
