Tobin Ortenblad  Santa Cruz / Donkey Label Racing | Santa Cruz, CA, USA, Planet Earth

Snacks and a view before I take off for the first big race block of the year! Thirty days, ten races, and six states. Fingers crossed it’s as good as last year’s was!

Never met a sprint I didn’t like....Except for that one time, but we won’t go into that. Rochester was rad, cross is officially on and pop’n! 📷 @bruce_buckley

Shook out the legs the past two weeks at the first four UCI races of the season. Made some notes on what needed work and now we work on the weaknesses. #cycleutioncoaching

Was finally able to meet up and sit down with Bill Schieken from @cxhairs while in DC the past couple days. We talked about bikes, racing, and what’s next. Check out the link to the podcast in my bio, if you’re into that kinda thing.

First UCI cross weekend is a wrap, happy to walk away with two podium finishes. To be honest I was a bit uncertain of where the cards would fall this past weekend after a summer high training volume and less racing than usual. Starting to look like the foundation will be solid to crush another cx season! #cycleutioncoaching 📷 @gratstagram

Day one and two at the cyclocross season kickoff at @go_cross in Roanoke, VA. A pinch slippery with some mud yesterday and dry and fast today. Happy to be on the podium both days, legs are right where they need to be.

We’re assembling bikes and putting on rotors in a basement in Virginia. Cross is definitely here! First race of the season is @go_cross at 3pm EST tomorrow.

A quick reprieve from starting at the roller and plate of the scoot scoot. Three days until the season starts at @go_cross in Roanoke, VA!

Stoked to see how smoothly the inaugural Old Growth Classic gravel race went this Saturday. So much to coordinate, @ascrapes and @mountainbikersofsantacruz killed it! I’ll definitely be back next year. Opted for my Highball mtb with skinny tires mostly for the gearing, 8000’ of climbing in 52 miles killed the legs. Also, here’s a quick sneak peek of the new kits from @donkeylabel for the season!

That one time we ripped through poison oak at the @oldcabinclassic and didn’t have Tecnu so we used Simple Green. Maybe not the best idea, but just for the record neither of us got poison oak. 📷 @acooldryplace

Did some recon of this weekend’s @mountainbikersofsantacruz Old Growth Classic course. My takeaways....bring your granny gears and be ready to get sideways on the descents.

Took in the views, pulled little 2wd trucks up roads they weren’t meant to be on, got drooled on by a large dog, slept in tents, and looked at all the stars and things! Solid final weekend of shenanigans before the travel cluster that is cx season begins.
