20 questions

Alrighty, Adam.

More summer nostalgia: McCargo Cove, Isle Royale.

1. Your favorite bike?

Whichever of the two I’m having really good rides on recently, but haven’t gotten sick of/had mechanical problems with yet.

A Huffy with plastic wheel covers when I was around 8.

3. Favorite t-shirt?

Patagonia Capilene 1 stretch in canary yellow.

4. Taco Bell or Del Taco?


5. Best race?

Kaibab Monstercross 2008.  Perhaps my best all around athletic performance to date.

In order: Evans, Schleck, Gesink.

Sleater-Kinney at Grinnell College in 2002.

12. Trail you hate to love?

The trails behind the science center in Des Moines.

13. Have you ever puked at a finish line?

A so-so biopic of George and Martha Washington.

17. Hard tail or full-suspension?


18. 2011 Paris-Roubaix winner?

Of course.

  1. #6. I was there. DNF’d due to broken hanger. The mud!

  2. The worst thing was that I had totally dropped Ed 90 minutes before! Drat!!

  3. 2008 Kaibab was one of my best days on the bike as well. A perfect combination weather, fitness, great people and lots of chocolate milk.
