Chris Locke - Dirt Dobber

Chris Locke leads the Cow Town Cycling team and runs the Kansas City Cross web site. This is his personal blog, and here is what he has to say for himself:

I am just a manic depressive, obsessive compulsive, masochistic athlete. I somehow "get off" on seeing how much pain I can endure. Come join me the relentless pursuit of dubious cycling achievements and marginal life accomplishments.

Life Without a Phone 01-20-2017
