Two of our Favourite athletes in the Mountain Biking World!!

When I started working with my college buddy, JD, who started Cyclelogical…I was not terribly familiar with the “Mountain Biking World.”  Sure, I had gone out occasionally with him and others on some “not so threatening” trails in Cali, AZ and UT but just to “have fun” (i.e. get a few bruises and scrapes) not a whole lot beyond that.  Then as I traveled to events like the Kamikaze Bike Games up at Mammoth Mountain my eyes started to open to what you MTB athletes go through and I was extremely impressed!

Then JD encouraged me to look up an MTB athlete, Syd Schulz, @sydschulzathlete and I have been “hooked” on her and Macky ever since.  In fact this morning, while drinking my coffee with coconut oil to get warmed back up after my 6am ride…I read her latest blog: https://www.sydschulz.com/mountain-biking/six-ways-to-peel-a-banana-or-a-rock-garden

She just has a great, unconquerable attitude with a the ability to just “tell it like it is” with no apology.  She has “pure moxie” as my uncle used to say. Beyond her blog and FB and Instagram, I find myself occasionally checking out Syd & Macky’s YouTube channel and absolutely LOVE this video they posted about a month ago…in which they go through their “Top 10” crashes of their 2017 season (my personal favs #7 “I made it past the part I was worried about” and #5 “Macky vs the log 😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoUCi2Qji00

Add to all this that they are “van life” people like myself, who enjoy traveling around, and even sport our Cyclelogical clothes at times when they are off their bikes…(https://www.instagram.com/p/BZJwCpinVcB/?taken-by=sydgschulz) (https://www.instagram.com/p/BYhXlGvnRtP/?taken-by=sydgschulz)

 

How could you not love them?!?!?  I encourage you to take sometime and check them out (you know in those “down times” at work when you need a to break up the monotony;) Cheers! -BS
