The @belgianwaffleride ran a "re-do" of the wafer today. I jumped in for 42 of the 67 miles, pulling the ripcord with @ccrider2015 midway through, making a beeline for the @lostabbey bier. (Speaking of bees, rode through a swarm...untouched. Some days.) With my travel of late, a wise call. Still made for a rad, dusty loop. Thx, Christi for dragging me around...and GO GET A MASSAGE!!! ✌️

An impromptu visit to Sonoma for a bit of the left turn. And right turn. Road course practice for the @nascar cup drivers today, and a bit of K&N Series racing as a chaser. Great hanging with @landoncassill @jimmiejohnson & @aim_walsh for a bit back out on the Best Coast.... best of luck tomorrow. And thanks @verowatches and Landon for having me out for the visit. Back to SD for a few days! #nascar

I almost wore the @gformprotects hip padded bibshort on today's #presscamp MTB ride with GForm pal @billrudell. Almost. Cleared the bar past the shaded aspen. Didn't clear my hip. #ouch #hindsightis2020 #thatsgonnaleaveamark

I genuinely enjoy the company of the good people I work with in this triathlon/cycling industry. So good to gather with them for some tasty victuals & whiskey over good music at my fave restaurant on the planet, @drinkhighwest. Any place with mason jar lighting is my kinda place. A good night out talking, well, bikes with @robert_kunz_0511 @natenewtonmeter @declan_ind Bastien Donze and Dan Lee. Back to more bike talk tomorrow at #presscamp

Good few days out tracking this dude, then shooting him out in the field. A @camdyetri feature for @lavamagazine in process. Been wanting to profile and photograph him for a while; whether it's his mountain man look or his motivations, he's 180-degree counter to the typical triathlete. Which is rad af, because so many triathletes are so booooring. Cam ain't. #triathlon #triathlete #boulder #swimbikerun #canon #sportphotography #blackandwhiteonly

Seen a lot of guys get distracted, go off the rails, not reach their potential. So I feel incredibly grateful to have a father that implored upon me the value of staying on the gas, learning value, earning your keep. Shitty Burger King job at age 16, car wash, get the college degree, own your mistakes, cut your teeth, make your path. This is the guy that kept me (and my brother @prasuhn13) pointed forward. Glad to get to do stuff now to pay @bobprasuhn back a little bit, like take him to the races we watched on tv when I was a kid and have lunch with the guys we cheer on every Sunday, like our pal @jimmiejohnson here.
Happy Fathers Day, dad! Enjoy a day of NASCAR on tv. 👊

The "not a coast ride" ride. First time to Ward (well, according to @donnaphelan1 I missed the best part: the kicker into town.) I didn't care; I was done. Fun, steady thin-air climb. Will have to explore more when I am back in town. Thx for the ass-kicking, Diesel!

Daybreak set a pretty fine tone at Ironman Boulder. After that, every competitor completed the painting of the day in their own way.☀️#ironmantri #imboulder #triathlon #triathlonlifestyle #canon #inspiration #swimbikerun

No respite. @tybutterfield runs shoulder-to-shoulder with a fellow pro while "enjoying" a bit of shade during @ironmantri Boulder.

Last fall, @rachelsjoyce had a baby boy, lil' Archie. Eight months later, she reclaimed her place at the fore of women's pro racing, coming out on top in a battle with @hjacksonracing to win Ironman Boulder. So impressive. Kona just got more interesting. #triathlon #ironmantri #imboulder #cycling #inspiration
