Hole in the Ground makes for great fall fun Hole in the Ground makes for great fall fun

It’s been a dry year for California and you can definitely see the impact on the MTB trails around Lake Tahoe.  One trail that’s held up relatively well is the Hole In the Ground trail, which generally isn’t snow-free until July.  A couple of weeks ago — before the recent rains — we rode HITG, and despite encountering more moon dust and blown out corners than we would’ve liked, we still had a great time.We also came across some recent trail work on the Andesite ridge.  Pavers were added to the switchbacks, hopefully increasing the trail’s longevity. One... (more...)

Ironman Tahoe goes to “rolling start” Ironman Tahoe goes to “rolling start”

Ironman Lake Tahoe just announced that the race is changing its start to a “rolling start” similar to a marathon, dropping the traditional mass swim start that has been a symbol of the ironman series but also a major source of anxiety to the racers. The rolling start was tried in Couer d’Alene and Lake Placid this summer and got positive reviews, so the Lake Tahoe organizers are adopting it for the Sept. 22 event, which starts with a 2.4 mile swim at Kings Beach. Earlier, the race had said it was going to go with self-seeded corrals while still maintaining a mass start. Instead,... (more...)

National Championship Marathon Mountain Bike Race Report National Championship Marathon Mountain Bike Race Report

This past weekend one of our authors, Nicole Dolney, participated in the National Championship race for Marathon distance mountain biking.  Here is her race report: I don’t remember why I pinpointed this race, or what spurred the idea, but I do recall the first time I said it publicly.  It was at a pub in Auburn sitting across from Chris McGovern (Cycleution Coaching) back in September of last year.  I was looking for a coach, my first ever, and I was sharing with him my goal of getting on the podium of USA Cycling Marathon Nationals in 2013.  That was the first day of my journey here –... (more...)

A Race of Epic Proportions – Tahoe Sierra 100 Mountain Bike Race A Race of Epic Proportions – Tahoe Sierra 100 Mountain Bike Race

Tahoe Sierra 100 Mountain Bike Race by Nicole Dolney On August 24 this year a mountain bike race of epic proportions will start from Soda Springs.  The race promoter describes the race as one of the most challenging ultra mountain bike races in North America – and in my opinion he’s right. Here is my race report from last year. ————————————— The start of the Tahoe Sierra 100 MTB race in 2012. It was almost 6 am, barely light and a brisk 45 degrees.  One hundred seventy riders and bikes huddled in a deformed circle... (more...)

Hole in the Ground Trail - looking at Castle Peak June 2013 Nicole Dolney If you’re in the area looking for a couple of fun 3-hour long rides light on elevation gain, these rides are for you. The well-known Hole in the Ground (HITG) and less known Yogi trails. Each offers a fun day of technical riding (intermediate level for the Yogi trail and intermediate with some advanced for HITG) with stellar views and terrain that will leave a permanent ear-to-ear grin on your face the rest of the day. The Yogi trail starts just south of Truckee, off highway 89. From the trailhead you climb up dirt... (more...)

Early Season MTB-ing fun Early Season MTB-ing fun

May 2013 Nicole Dolney By now you’ve long since hung up your skis. The poor snow pack last winter closed ski resorts early. But while you’re hanging up your skis, pull out that mountain bike and get it tuned up for some spectacular early season mountain biking. The poor snow pack and high temperatures means more trails are accessible this time of year than normal. The higher elevations and northern aspects are still covered, but many of the lower elevation trails and south aspect trails are almost completely clear. And it’s these conditions that are optimal for mountain biking. Later in... (more...)
