3/14 is Pi day & Einstein's birthday, so I celebrated by running around in a circle, eating a pie, dressed as Einstein.
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!

Wow! So honored to be featured in latest issue of Men's Health magazine. I'll be defending my Tour De Donut title on July 9th. Pick up a copy & see pg 42!
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!
I ate thiiiiis much corn (47) in 12min at the Sweet Corn Eating Championship in West Palm Beach, Florida to claim my 2nd Major League Eating Championship. A new world record!
Here are my next 3 competitions:
I'm really excited to start the 2016 season! I've posted confirmed competition dates to my calendar, and will be adding more as I book them.
This year includes lots of Tour de Donuts in the US where I'll be defending my titles, ultra-distance bicycle races, marathons, eating contests, and an Ironman.
My big goal this year is to qualify for 3200 mile Race Across America (RAAM) bicycle race in 2017 as a solo rider. I'll do that by completing the 400 mile RAAM Texas Challenge in March and the 860 mile Race Across the West (RAW) in June.
I hope to see you out there on the courses this season!
