Another reason to smile

Mrs CCU and I knew Jeff, and his Dad Ken pretty when we lived in Salt Lake. We were both officiating, and I was racing every so often with Ken. I did plenty of winter training rides with Jeff. So I try to follow Jeff’s career as best I can. Since he retired from racing, thus getting into the equivalent of sideline coaching he became somewhat anonymous.

As you can see from the article, Covid did a number on racing across the world, and dampened development of many smaller teams and new riders. Jeff has decided to move into race promotion and development. It won’t replace the Tour of Utah, which was ended earlier this year by Medallist Sports.

Anyway, read the article. Have a smile. If you’re into gravel or off road riding, keep an eye on what Jeff Louder is doing. Keep an eye on the Crushar in the Tushar (started by Burke Swindlehurst), and for other “self supported” type events in the region.

I’ve had friends do Crusher in the Tushars and it is BRUTAL. So awesome.

Side note: Anybody else tired of how bad autocorrect actually is? I am a horrible writer anyway, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone back and autocorrect has ‘fixed’ something in the completely wrong way making me look like even more of an idiot.

I’m guessing there is a way for it to just underline what I’ve typed wrong, I want to go back to that. Or at least underline what has been changed so I can do a quick review.


Is that even possible? :wink:

I wouldn’t have thought so, but then I started hanging out with you.
