Some long overdue Team Alchemist News.

Paul Hooge wins Pikes Peak marathon

Paul Hooge wins Pikes Peak marathon 45-50.

Alchemist’s Paul Hooge won the Pikes Peak marathon for men’s 45-49.   4:56 1st place age group  45-49. He also broke the record for running from Boulder to Long’s Peak and back.  Yeah, you heard that correctly.  Downtown Boulder, to the top of Long’s Peak, back to downtown Boulder.  I just threw up a little in my mouth thinking about how hard that is.  Stats on that run in a future post.

Kees on his Fatback

Kees on his Fatback bike. Racing in the Netherlands.

Here’s Kees tearing up the Team Cross Triathlon in the Netherlands.   He is riding a Fatback bike made in Alaska.  The big tired bike kept him on top of the sand (originally built for snow), and he just shredded the competition.  Looks fun too.  Rear hub spacing is 170mm and front is 135mm. BB shell is 100mm.  Isn’t is great that the bike was painted to compliment his Team kit?

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

Big thanks to Ryn and Ken for organizing another Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, sponsored by Alchemist and IMBA.  They went to Marshall Mesa and Dowdy Draw.  Alchemist stickers and a good time were had by all.  Check out Ryn in her old school Spare Tire Cycling french fry jersey!
