(OT) What happened to Dawgcatching?

Haven't seen a post from him in ages and his site is there but has issues. Anyone heard?

 

THX

+1 on the question, i was wondering too...

post #3 of 23

Bike racing season?

 

Sounded like he was getting serious last season, moving up to Cat 1.

 

Competing -- not just participating -- at that level requires nearly single-minded commitment.

Bike racing for Scott.

Shop is a bike shop in summer.

With a few magic words and the wave of many hands, it

turns into a snow shop in the autumn.

He's a pretty solid bike guy in the summer and often takes time off of Epic during this time of year.  I anticipate he'll be back in a month or so.

Didn't he just have a baby?

Pretty sure it must have been his wife....

Here's a bit about him winning the OBRA road race chamionships.  As HRP said, racing at that level doesn't leave much time to play on the computer.

Har, Har... I am dad to a beautiful adored 9month old and I had stopped posting here almost completely until I got laid off because I had no time.

Oh wow! I had no idea that was him.

Sorry, I haven't been around, but it has been crazy busy here at the shop.  Tons of bikes to sell and rent (summer/fall is our busy season; I am ready for a vacation!).  Been racing my bike alot, training as much as possible, and spending time with my 8-month old.  Racing at the national elite/pro level on the road is a big time commitment  Here are some pics:

 

Getting ready to scare other babies this Halloween:

Dad en route to winning the Oregon State Championship Mens Road Race:

Pro NRC Cascade Cycling Classic Downtown Crit (about 10,000 fans, 150 racers, peloton is strung out nearly 3 blocks long at 34mph). I am probably riding about 25th wheel.

Me trying unsuccessfully to get away:

Cross Crusade last weekend, I was racing (some would say sandbagging) the B's.  Probably should have upgraded, as I won by 90 seconds.  The start:

20111009-IMG_6930-2.jpg

 

Quickly getting a gap on the field: 20111009-IMG_6946-2.jpg

 

Some weak barrier action: lots of practice needed on cross specific skills.

20111009-IMG_6962-2.jpg

 

En route to my 2nd consecutive Cross Crusade (Alpenrose was the 1st) victory:

20111009-IMG_6985-2.jpg

 

Got kicked out of the B's the next day. Cross is addicting: I can't wait until I get smoother on the barriers and techy sections.

 

Also, here is a gallery from Nature Valley GP. I was in the green kit, left side toward the front, in this picture.  Hardest crit in America;  only 40 of us didn't get pulled/lapped. I finished 22nd, after dropping my chain the 2nd to last time up the hill.  It is the biggest non UCI rated stage race in America.  Total craziness, 22% hill on every lap, sketchy 45mph off-camber cornering descent, drunk fans 5 deep in your face on the climb.

I should be posting here more often once I get caught up with the end of season bike stuff.  Getting close to time to start thinking about winter.

Boy I wish I'd have known you were riding the Stillwater Crit.  That's right out my back door.  He's right the course is a butt-kicker.
