I just broke my own record & defended my championship at the Donut Derby bike race

I defended my Donut Derby bike race championship by eating 55 donuts, and broke the record I set last year (54 donuts). Each donut eaten at this race give riders a 3 min time credit and I had a final time of negative 11 minutes. So full!

I just defended my championship title at the 28th annual Tour De Donut

Yesterday I defended my championship title at the 28th annual Tour de Donut. There were some new guys that put up 19-20 doughnuts and rode at a decent pace. The women's champion, Katherine, is pregnant and downed half a dozen doughnuts!

Happy #DoughnutDay ! I once ate 54 doughnuts during a 36 mile bike race

On September 7, 2015 I won the Lehigh Wheelman Association's Donut Derby bicycle race, a 36 mile ride w/2 donut stops at mile 12 and 24 where competitors eat donuts. Each donut eaten=3min time credit. I ate 54, for a 'donut adjusted time' of -35 minutes (my unadjusted time was 2hr 7min). Both new course records. The previous champ held the title for the last 6 consecutive years. This is my GoPro POV video, raw and unedited.

I just won the 'Donut King' title at the San Luis Obispo Tour de Donut and it was epic!

The San Luis Obispo Tour de Donut is an amazing race. Definitely the most difficult of all the Tour de Donuts. This 2 stage race is really unique. In Stage 1, the whole pack of cyclists ride 15 miles together, making 3 stops to eat donuts for time credits. The time credit given per donut eaten is only 15 seconds (vs 3 or 5 min for other Tour de Donuts). Then Stage 2 is a time trial up Perfumo Canyon Road. It's a very steep (6% avg grade) 3 mile climb.

I won the "Donut King" title for most donuts consumed (22) and Jake Pickett won the Overall title by making it to the top of the road first. He's a beast! This race will test you to the limits and the folks who put it on are really into it.  Check out slotourdedonut.com for more info!
