WTFn F! how does nothing get posted from May 8th until now? I thought we got rid of this inconsistent posting thing ever since firing the Intern! And it is not like anything huge hasn’t been happening! I mean croqueting on the regular, a new Facebook page has now been erected to demonstrate our love for the game, in addition to The Summer Classic which was contested on the calendar day 6/26 and I won all the money!

But onto the bigger news; as you, gentle readers, know; The Man of the House and owner of the croquet court is also highly decorated 100mile racer(actually THE most decorated), Karl Meltzer. He has decided to end the 2016 summer croquet season due to the fact he is trying to break the Appalachian trail through record for a third time! This attempt gets underway next week and The Lady of the House is not going to be putting up with croquet and drinking going on until all hours of the night in the backyard without the Man of the House in attendance!

You, gentle reader, can become advised of the all the details right here; http://trailrunnermag.com/people/news/2227-karl-meltzer-takes-on-the-at-again

After a month long reign as the featured header, the Management at Pedal n Pole Park City would like to announce that the headers are now going back to being randomized as we feel at this juncture we have squeezed all the dopeness out of BT’s sick photo and it is time to move on and start posting again before someone gets fired!

This was the orginal post;

31. March 2016 · Comments Off on That annoying couple of weeks…… · Categories: Blatant Utah tourism propaganda, Enduro as fucking fuck!, Mountain Bike, Real mtn life, roadiefuckbiking, Skate Ski

In every mountain town everywhere there are a really annoying couple of weeks where the Nordic center shuts down and the trails are not even close to being ready for mountain biking! The inhumanity! Not to mention this is a first world problem of the highest order.

It usually starts with a notice like this;  http://live.whitepinetouring.com/track-conditions/. This is when the “what the hell am I going to do for a workout on my lunch break” panic immediately sets in. Remember, your humble Editor was already told once this season that he looked fat in his race suit so we might be a little panicked about getting fat and being faced with going to the gym or this;

Fuck running.

is just too much reality.

If there is one activity that is “for training purposes only” it is running. Especially on the road as your humble Editor does not mind an occasional trail run but as for that roadie crap…….. well…….remember what your mother said about not being able to say nice things. And with trails not ready for mountain biking, they sure aren’t  ready for trail running!

In a pinch, this will work until real biking on dirt is available;

Is Tidal Wave dry yet?

But it is a poor substitute as there are no sweet airs to be had and should only be turned to when all other options are completely exhausted. Plus there is the chance of being spotted in public in spandex.

And so it goes here in the extremely jaded world of mountain athletics where not being able to train in your favorite discipline is seen as a major injustice. While we are months away from more of this;

Still the only place spandex is cool; On Snow!

We are only weeks away from this!

30. March 2016 · Comments Off on Dope up for what? · Categories: Blatant Utah tourism propaganda, doper loser shitbags

A few days back we had the story of mega loser, doper shit bag, Thorfinn-Sasquatch who was doping to get Strava KOM’s. Now comes the equally disturbing and pathetic tale of the Micheal Buckley, a 41 year old amateur cyclist from Reno, Nevada.

Since Buckley had no real natural ability of any sort he resorted to doping to compete in masters cycling races against a bunch of other old guys with jobs. Buckley’s doping program(like himself) must have been pretty pathetic cause after getting jacked up on a number of different steroids he was only able to come up with a 5th at a national time trial and 7th at the national crit championships. You just have to wonder “what the fuck” but our society has become seriously diseased since Ben Johnson ran that hundred way back in 88 in Seoul. And that Lance guy…..
