The Coast Ride

3 DAYS, 367 MILES FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO SANTA BARBARA

Every January, an epic cycling adventure from San Francisco to Santa Barbara takes place along highway 1. The so-called Coast Ride has been an annual tradition dating back to the 90’s and what started as a small adventure for a small group of friends became a bit more organized and the number of riders has steadily grown over the years. This’ not a race, every levels are welcomed and each day you are faced with 120+ miles of riding to a grand total of the 367 miles between the two cities.

IMAZ and closure of 2015

Those who know me well know that I’ll be the first one to jump into a race if there’s the option to. I race not because I want to get a pay check – well, that too – but because I love the thrill of a competition, I love being surrounded by people that are going through those motions prior to an IM and, above all, I love to try and beat other fast dudes.

Top 20 at the IRONMAN World Championship

This past Saturday I finished 18th at the Ironman World Championship. The race in Kona is our sports’ Olympic Games. Or Le Tour de France.

The AZ Club Championship was held yesterday at Tempe International Triathlon. I decided to jump into it last minute (literally) because not only it suited my training weekend as it is still and always a thrill to race down the street with the same people I ride and train every day. Tri Scottsdale has been a family for me since I arrived in Arizona and I couldn't miss out on this reunion. Before the race, my Di2 failed again (same issue as in IMTX) so I just removed the derailleur and went 1x. Step backs aside, not only did Tri Scottsdale win the championship as we swept the men podium at the International Olympic race. It is a great honor to represent such a friendly and enthusiastic club and town across the World. Time to soak up this last hard slice of training and rest up for Ironman Brazil which is only 6 days away! ... See MoreSee Less
