Alien Run MTB ride – Aztec New Mexico, UFO Crash site

March 30, 2008

Alien Run is a 25+- MTB single-track and oil-field road mountain bike ride in Aztec, New Mexico.

The ride is named after the fabled Hart Canyon UFO Crash site. Little green men – or women, whomever you prefer.


The ride / race course is accessed through Aztec New Mexico. We started at the Aztec Motocross track for about 8 miles of Mountain View trail before we got to the Alien run trailhead. From there it was an 8 mile loop. Sandy, twisty singletrack with some slickrock then back to the moto track via Mtn View.  Total ride time about 2.75 hrs easy with breaks.

Colorado Epic Mountain Bike Race

December 18, 2007

Jon Watt sent me this link to a Velonews article about the Colorado Epic MTB Endurance Stage Race. Its nice to see that racers on a budget dont have travel to Costa Rica or BC to get a chance at an Epic-multi day-brutal stage race! What are your thoughts? Would you do a 5 day MTB stage race in CO? Would you only train and race big races that season? Would you race Solo or Team? – Swift

The 2008 Mountain States Cup series just got posted on their website. It looks like they came back with the classic races like Angel Fire, Crested Butte, Snow Mass, Telluride and Keystone.

The search for warmth

November 25, 2007

With the warm fall we have been having in the Denver area, all of us have been riding quite a bit lately. But then last week, Jack Frost reminded us that its almost December with cold temps and a couple inches of snow. So, Matt, Tate, Tim, Tyler and I headed West for some dry dirt. Here is a photo of Tyler and the cliche biker pose…


And this photo shows a small glimpse of the new double diamond trail, Free Lunch, in Grand Junciton…


And here is a photo of my ML8 soaking in the sun!

What I learned from Mike Janelle is that you could win a mtn bike race using road tatics. 🙂 Thank you Mike! Ride in peace.Dscn0359
