Help the women's field in Idaho make more money!

Sawtooth Physical therapy is donating $1 to the women's prize pool for every Facebook "like" it receives before the end of December. The Superprestige series just ended, but there is still time to add more cash to the pot! Simply go to this link and hit Like. The likes don't have to come from only racers or even people in Idaho. Share with your friends. Thanks!  …See More

"Ken The best training for racing is racing.  The other big deal is tire pressure.  I race P/1/2 and this past weekend had too much air pressure in my front tire and had to get on the brakes through corners - and was kicking myself for not…"

Kris Fleming replied to Jairo Eduardo Suarez Gallardo's discussion About groupset in my first CX bike.
"Personally, I find a 42 too tall a gear for CX if your only ring.  The 50 will be pretty useless offroad.  Unless you are a super strong rider, once you get offroad, you might find the 42 holding you back.  I ride a 1X set up with a…"

Chad Rector replied to Jairo Eduardo Suarez Gallardo's discussion About groupset in my first CX bike.
"I think you would do well with the 50-34 crank then, depending on courses there. If the courses are slow you may spend most of the race in the 34t. You should definitely swap out the 50t if swapping chainrings though, more because of the limited…"
