Mountain bike stage racing talk tonight at Boulder REI

Tonight at 6:30, local pro mountain biker Sonya Looney and her teammate Jeff Kerkove are giving a presentation on multi-day mountain bike racing at REI Boulder.

I talked to Sonya the other day about how one would go about totally blowing it in a stage race. Her tips included partying, not eating or drinking and eating way too much.

I guess moderation is called for. Even though doing an event like that in the first place isn’t exactly moderation.

If you’re into mountain biking, tonight’s presentation is worth checking out. Plus, Marty and I discussed Sonya and concluded that one of the coolest things about her is that she isn’t afraid to show you the beastly side of mountain biking. Sonya shows photos of herself suffering. And she’ll tell you about it — when I interviewed her the other day, she told me she’d puked in her mouth during a race.

Honesty, vulnerability, puke. I think I have a girl crush.
