Mike Gaertner stepped up to the Cascade Cream Puff 100

The Cascade Cream Puff 100 was last weekend and Mike Gaertner out of CDA, Id. won the damn thing- I am totally pumped for him- anyone that has met Mike knows he’s a very humble, positive guy and his true rowdy spirit shows on the race course wether its on a mountain bike or a cross bike, he cranks it up. I find it amazing he can run his bike shop, be a husband, be a dad and get out on the race course still and hold his own- like his wife said after I got done interviewing Mike, “he’s just good at everything he does.”  All I know is he likes to ride his bike and shred it hard.

So a couple days ago I decided to call him up and see if I could get him to talk into my camera instead of me thinking of what he might want me to say to honor his win.

He posted his ride time from his Garmin on Strava if you wanna check it out.

Thanks Mike, you’re badass. Nice work.

  1. One lap of alpine usually puts me on my ass for a couple days. I don’t understand how these hard bastards can ride it multiple times at race pace.

  2. riding a 100 miles when it has rained the day before in that area, is totally baller status.
