Fat Tire Freedom: She’s Baaaack

Fat Tire Freedom: She’s Baaaack

Fat Tire Tuesday’s Sarah Hansing is riding amok again, and not containing herself to just Tuesdays either …  Pfffffftttt ………… FART NOISE. Because I am a grown up, I often make a fart sound with my mouth, followed by a declaration, to clarify what my intention is:   “Fart noise!” I will proclaim. Because I do this often, I think maybe it has become a bit more second nature than I would prefer. Which is to say: I don’t even realize I’m doing it sometimes. This is not how an adult is supposed to act. I am aware of this, because I am (by numbers) an adult. However, I would like to stand up and own the fact that this year. This month. And this particular STUPID MONDAY … I AM BAD AT ADULTING. *spoiler alert: I am always bad at adulting.  It’s not just this Monday. Look. It was...
Beer and Taco Mountain Bike Festival Turns Spotlight on Beatty

Beer and Taco Mountain Bike Festival Turns Spotlight on Beatty

Western Nevada mountain bike festival hosts legend Tinker Juarez for cross-county race By Stan Lattin Tinker Juarez at the start of the Tinker Classic. The “Beer And Taco Mountain Bike Festival” is a mouthful in more ways than one. Besides the long and quite specific name of the event, the food, beer and friends keep even the most excitable chatterbox occupied. Located in Beatty, Nevada the festival – which took place at Spicer Ranch May 5-7 – grew to three days in its third year. The second day was the Tinker Classic cross country race with 100k and 60k race distance options. Conditions were less than ideal with gusting winds averaging 18 mph, but the racing went off without a hitch, and Tinker Juarez won the race held in his honor. His hospitality and genuine love of life made the prior night’s celebratory race dinner an event to remember....

Santa Cruz Old Cabin Classic Raises Funds for Trails

Santa Cruz Old Cabin Classic Raises Funds for Trails

Second annual cross country race and festival hits all the right notes above the Monterey Bay By Emma Ussat Photo: Jeff Vander Stucken Blue skies and mild temps set the scene for the second annual Santa Cruz Old Cabin Classic, presented by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) at Wilder Ranch State Park on Saturday, May 13, 2017. The day kicked off bright and early with the first racers hitting the course starting at 8am. The course was harder this year, as relentless rains took their toll on our local trails. Brave souls who raced the vintage class were rattled and bounced about on their pre-1993 bikes. Despite the added challenge on the course the overall vibe remained positive and the feelings of camaraderie pervaded.
