What a road trip - RAAM 2014

When you read about the Race Across America you can kind of imagine how hard the world's toughest bicycle race is, and I already had a lot of respect for the racers before we went on the journey. Being alongside the racers and the crew of the "4Athletes" from Germany for a week (they finished in 3rd place after 5days and 14hours, 6h short of the record and 8h faster than their last year's win) you really get to experience how much harder it is than you've imagined.

Century ride - Santa Barbara to Santa Monica

On Sunday Nov 17, four brave souls set out on a journey that would change their lives...or just  make them really tired and feeling a good amount of accomplishment by the end of the day. Bryan, Daniel and I from the team were joined by Tom from OTR. We took the early morning Amtrak train from Union Station LA to Santa Barbara and rode the 112miles back to Santa Monica. After a few wrong turns, we found our way out of Santa Barbara and climbed up Hwy 150 to scenic Lake Casitas, descending down into Oxnard, and returning to familiar grounds of Point Mugu and PCH/Malibu.

Total trip distance: 126.55 miles

Elevation gain: 4,999ft

Calories burned: 4302kcal

Yosemite & Bodie

My cousin from Hamburg, Germany, came over during spring break, and we set out on a photo trip to Yosemite and the ghost town Bodie. We put 1200 miles on a brand new  rental car, jumped out of bed for almost every sunrise and spent many hours on trails in Yosemite. I’ve picked some of the best Black & White and toned shots.
