The local Boulder paper, The Daily Camera, had a nice write up today about the upcoming Boulder Ironman complete with input from 2X Hawaiian Ironman World Champion, Tim DeBoom on what it takes and how to approach the big day! View the entire article here.
Be sure to meet Tim at the EC Booth at the Ironman Expo later this week (Specific Times announced on Tuesday of race week). The Expo is located at Boulder High School in downtown Boulder. EC will have a few extra goodies available during race week.
This past week during the annual Ragbrai ride, fellow Iowan and master bike builder, Tom Teesdale, passed away of a heart attack during the ride. Known for his generosity as a builder (donating bikes to students in need) and as one of the original mountain bike master builders (1988 Fisher Mt. Tam – arguably one of the finest mtn bikes of the time). A true artisan. You’ll be missed Tom!
Join EC at the oldest multi-day bike ride in the Northwest with over 10,000 riders making the trek from Seattle to Portland in one or two days. Labeled as one of the best cycling events in the country by Bicycling Magazine. EC will be hanging out at the finish line EXPO in Holladay Park in downtown Portland both Saturday and Sunday. If you’re not riding, be sure to swing by and check out the craziness.
Yep! You heard it folks. Endurance Conspiracy is making our first trek to the greatest multi-sport event outside of the Hawaiian Islands – the legendary queen of the Challenge series – one of the oldest and most prestigious events on the planet – home of the Beer Mile and Solar Hill – Challenge Roth! The race where even the Kleine Jungen und Mädchen are breaking 8 hours. And, we are stoked!
We’re coming stocked and ready and are hoping for some hometown fans / friends to swing by, say hello and tell us where the best schnitzel is in town. We’ve heard so many stories about the amazing fans and support that Roth gives towards this event – we can’t wait to witness it all first hand.
The US Army has been kind enough to loan us their state of the art EM50 Camper Van for the week – so be sure to keep a look out for Ec in the mean machine!
