Mike Simonson is good at bikes. The Michigan mountain bike legend struck again this past weekend, defending his Barry-Roubaix Psycho Killer 100 mile crown in style.

We’re deep into the gravel road race season here in Michigan just as the MGRS heads for yet another stop in Grand Rapids.
You gotta earn these #plusgyle PJs, and you earn them by toeing the line against the best riders at the biggest races.

Count yourself lucky; how many people get to say they’ve been to Manton, Michigan?
