I’m broken!

24 12 2009

I’m broken!  I broke my fibula and did a bunch of ligament damage to my ankle Telemark skiing on the 18th.  Surgery is scheduled for the 29th.  My riding has been put on hold for awhile 😦

Trials’n tribulations with the Miller family

2 10 2009

This past week I got to have fun on bikes with Caleb, Autumn, Eliza, Ian and Canyon of the illustrious Miller family in Woodland Park, Co.  I am so envious as the kids can do laps on their bikes and rollerblades in the house! 

We took the bikes outside and worked on low speed balance, trackstands and a little bit of rear wheel balance.  Everyone looked great!  Caleb and Autumn got creative with some teamwork that you will have to watch the video to see.  Even Ian and Canyon found their sweet spot to balance the little bikes. 

Dad Kevin (http://kevinmiller.typepad.com/), a former pro road bike racer with some serious skills of his own was a quick study too.  Check out the previous post for his mad wheelie skills. 

After biking we had a mini foot trials competition and Caleb and Autumn demonstrated some crazy swingset antics.  We ran out of time for trampoline wars so I will have to come back out for that!

Dual Trials at the Cherry-Roubaix

30 08 2009

Excellent day at the Cherry-Roubaix!  Big turnout of racers for the Old Town Criterium, and a great turnout of 2WT riders for the Dual Trials exhibition.  Wet weather kept the spectators away and made the obstacles really slippery.  We kept the course safe so we could have fun in the wet.  It was an experience to ride fast and in control on the slippery stuff.  The kids race and cummuter cup were a huge success in spite of the weather.  Our very own 2WT rider Scott Budzynski wowed the crowd on his giant road unicycle in the commuter cup.

2WT Dual Trials Exhibition at the Cherry-Roubaix

23 08 2009

2 Wheel Technique is bringing a Dual Trials Exhibition to the Cherry-Roubaix Old Town Criterium on Saturday August 29th.

Dual trials – two identical courses filled with obstacles where bikers compete head to head.  First one to clear all the obstacles and make it to the finish wins!  It’s all about the delicate balance between speed and pinpoint precision. 

As the day progresses the course will get tougher, the obstacles taller, the gaps bigger, and the riders more daring and aggressive.  Come and see who has what it takes!  Dual trials heats will run on Union Street in front of City Bike Shop during the breaks in racing action of the Old Town Crit.

The Old Town Crit starts at 12:30 PM.  Dual Trials heats start at 12:50 PM and the finals will be between 5 and 6 PM.
