Ross Is Tulsa Tough Winning Men’s 1-2 Omnium


Last year, I experienced a type of racing that I had never had before — very large fields (120+) and huge crowds at Tulsa Tough gave me a taste of what it must feel like to be a pro. This year, I got all of that and more as my Harvest Racing teammate, Jordan Ross, won […]

Technique Tuesday: Tops vs. Drops


One of the things I like about road and cross bikes are their drop handlebars. The mono-position flat bar of mountain bikes just doesn’t do it for me. Drop bars give you so many more options. The question is then, where should your hands be and when? As a junior, one of the first camps […]

Cliff Drive Juniors Race


A few images of the juniors racing with wild abandon through the rain at Cliff Drive.

Snake Alley Lessons and Gallery


I learned a few good lessons doing my first P/1/2 race at Snake Alley. The racing was good but short. Snake Alley is a race of attrition where, if you are not near the front, you fight like hell to get as close to the front as possible. However, you may learn that even in […]

Wildcat Den Visit


If you ever find yourself around the quad cities and care to venture off the beaten path, there’s a swell little park you should visit, or pitch a tent. Wildcat Den State Park just a few miles up river from the Melon City Criterium course. It’s small enough that you can easily see everything there […]

The Top Step


After several recent second places finishes, I finally got to stand on the top step of the podium at this past weekend’s Nebraska Omnium Weekend’s cat 3 criterium in Ashland, Nebraska. The race featured eight corners and an uphill finish. Pre-riding the course, I found that turns six and seven were very tight, requiring some […]

Crash-o Sore-ass Wrecks


Crash-o Sore-ass Wrecks: The Lead Up. I wrecked myself on a training ride a few weeks ago. It was dumb and the outcome has sucked …fiercely sucked. I will get to the specifics in a bit, but this injury has been part of a month that I never want to relive: It began with what […]

Tour of Kansas City, and Other Life Lessons


We are proud to have an athlete and person like Brady Murphy on the team. A class-act both on and off the bike…an exceptional athlete and person, who truly completes the Harvest Racing team and its values.

Jordan Ross Heads North Solo


Harvest Racing’s Jordan Ross took the family up north last weekend to compete in the LaCrosse Omnium and sat down with Brady Murphy to share his thoughts on the experience.

Chris Lillig Memorial Cup Photo Essay

Twin Bing Road Race 2015


The Harvest Racing team showed up in force for this past weekend’s Twin Bing Classic road race just outside of Sioux City, Iowa. Billed as 7000+ feet of climbing over 80 miles of rolling Iowa farmland, this race had all the makings of a USAC Spring classic. The team rolled out of Omaha early to survey […]

Bike Practice: Making The Most In A Small Group


Last night, even though the we put the kibosh on the Wednesday Night Ride out of the Trek Bicycle Store, Jordan, Brady and I still went out and braved the elements.
