George's Bio

Despite living on the east coast, my dreams are filled with epic powder and endless trails. I squeeze in the occasional off-road century, but am gearing up for the bigger stage races -- and may even attempt the Divide Race after being inspired by "Ride the Divide" and talking to Matthew Lee in person. And, someday, my wife and I WILL move to the mountains so that we're able to satisfy our powder craving and spend more winters in the backcountry.

Even though I've put it in a slightly hard-to-reach spot on the roof of my 4Runner, I do appreciate the ease of loading, the security in transit, and the fact that I don't have to remove the front wheel. I've had it for a while now (over 5 years?) and notice that the lock-down nut does occasionally loosen up on long drives, so I'm pretty diligent about checking the tightness during pit stops.

Yep, I have a small face/head, and these sunglasses fit perfectly! I've always liked Oakley's lenses, and love how secure these feel on my face. I also appreciate how they can be pushed up onto my forehead for quickly running into a store without having to stick them all the way up on my head :)

I loved the look of this helmet and liked the way my old Giro fit, so I took a chance and ordered online thinking that it'd be a win-win. What I didn't know about the helmet though, was that the adjustment straps -- unlike any other helmet I've owned -- mount directly into the helmet itself. There is still an adjustable band inside, but straps have more limited adjustability. That said, once things broke in a bit (and the straps softened from sweat), the limited adjustability hasn't really been the problem I thought it would be. Instead, the biggest issue I've had is that the helmet simply does not want to stay put on my head. The slightest bump causes it to tilt forward on my head to where the front edge is stopped only by my eyebrows before completely obscuring my vision. I'm sure it's something that only happens to specific head shapes, but it's very annoying for me. I did figure that I could minimize the issue by wearing my Headsweats (full head cover type), as the helmet sticks to it and doesn't want to slide around as much. So, I'll continue to wear the helmet, but will need to invest in a couple more Headsweats ...

After suffering several mtb racing seasons with cramping legs, despite the usual diet of bananas, water, CLIF Shot Blocks, and even E tabs, I've found that adding a moderate amount of Cytomax to my Camelback bladder seems to be doing the trick. After making it through the latest 12-hour race virtually cramp free, I think I'm sold.
