Throwback

A throwback comparison to go along with my last post. This was taken May 25, 2015 in the cental highlands of Vietnam while scouting courses for the first Vietnam Victory Challenge stage race. That was also a very cold day.

Q&A: Hockey player, lumberjack, world champ — Cory Wallace has done it all – VeloNews.com

Ever since meeting Cory Wallace at our 2016 Vietnam Victory Challenge he's been my favorite pro to follow. Check out the great interview from VeloNews. Cory's race adventures are impressive but more so is his willingness to rough it on these adventures and still have a fun time doing it.https://www.velonews.com/2019/05/mountain/qa-hockey-player-lumberjack-world-champ-cory-wallace-has-done-it-all_493198?fbclid=IwAR0XOUqT4ZuQswLr-S5CLTZjLeOADgw-bykTMrRdYlWUliqT_lS7z7ybG90

Canadian Cory Wallace thrives in adventurous bike races in far-flung places like Nepal, but he isn't opposed to lining up for a major race like the Whiskey Off-Road.

I spent my childhood in Star Valley, Wyoming and he Salt River Mountains. The last three summers have been full of amazing trips in these mountains as I've done course recon to create this event. Can't wait for the snow to melt off so I can get back up there.

04/19/2019

One of the best things about bike racing, meeting new people and making friends.

Salt River Mountains or the mountains of Dalat Vietnam? Sometimes it's hard to tell due to the pines. The 2019 SRC is waiting for you and your friends. Only 300 spots for 2019 so get registered.

04/13/2019

Our 2019 event will be a one day event that will serve as the kick-off and media release for our 2020 stage race. The event will take place on Saturday August 24th complete with an event village/camp where you and your family can enjoy the Wyoming mountains! See you there!

Cape Epic

The cold hard realities of bike racing, especially stage racing! At least you always have your teammate to rely on and help with the chase. If you really love racing, there just isn't a more fun way to race than paired up with a buddy for several days. Best of luck to everyone at Cape Epic!

You never know what the road will throw at you and you've always got to remain tough. Matt Beers proved that today; here's today's Plascon #MicaTexToughMoments

Stage racing, especially with teams adds a whole new level to race strategy.

Leaders consolidate at the Cape Epic - MarathonMTB.com

Stage racing, especially with teams adds a whole new level to race strategy.

Stage 1 of the Absa Cape Epic was a day of consolidation with both the top men and women growing their leads significantly after a tough 111km day which started and finished in Hermanus on Monday. Prologue winners Annika Langvad and Anna van der Breggen (Investec-songo-Specialized) increased their l...

Although the Salt River Challenge will be on the opposite side of the world from our last event, there will be a lot of similarities in the event and course design. First and foremost, it's going to be an amazing fun time with your friends!

At home with John Tomac: A legend of the trails and the road | CyclingTips

Had to share this great read. At one point I had multiple posters and magazine cut outs of Tomac on my walls. Tomac was one of a very few that inspired me in my early years of cycling.

Morning comes early on Tomac ranch. Work starts before sun-up. There are crops to tend to, fields to be tilled. The horses and chickens need to be fed. There are a variety of machines to gas up and maintain, and there’s also the matter of two motocross tracks to take care of.

You know it's steep when it actually looks steep on camera. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and hopefully with a little bike time.

Dropping into the week fully pinned!

Riding a line like this is always intense, and doing with a friend like Mason Mashon is next level!

Have you seen the new Specialized Diverge? This looks like the perfect bike for just about any adventure. I can think of a lot of roads and trails in Vietnam and elsewhere that I'd love to try this thing.

We have another huge mountain stage today at the Tour de Suisse and I'm wondering whether I can bring the all-new Specialized Bicycles Diverge with me... It's fast and fun!

Amazing story that an amazing athlete has shared with us with a message of healing and understanding.

The team and I are so excited to present the Official Trailer for our latest film, Blood Road, directed by Nicholas Schrunk.

Blood Road is a journey of hope and discovery—a way for me to begin a fresh relationship with my father I lost so long ago.

The film will be available for purchase June 20.

Great adventures in Dalat and beyond with the folks at Phat Tire Ventures Vietnam. One of the best parts of putting on the Vietnam Victory Challenge was working with the many great guides at Phat Tire Ventures Vietnam.

So is the course the greys river road?
Hey Vietnam Victory, Just trying my best to find any info but struggling a bit with MTB in Vietnam. I hope you dont mind me messaging you! I am an Mountain bike rider from Australia with 15+ years experience. I am hoping to find a local tour company who could take me for a day trip in some of the cities I will be visiting in my travels. At this stage I am not sure on where would be the best locations for a good mountain bike tour. Can someone please make me a suggestion or put me in touch with a local tour company in these locations? I will be in Vietnam for 2x weeks from the 24th of September to the 3rd of October. At this stage I will be in Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi, Hoi An, and Sapa. Can anyone let me know which destinations they would recommend for single day mountain bike tours? Because I will be with my Girlfriend I will only be able to do single day tours. I have my own Full Suspension Mountain Bike I will bring. I am also happy to pay a little more for a private tour guide if this is not a standard request. Any help would be appreciated!
