One mother with a teenage boy said “Gods, Gloves, Popups, and Ponies” was like a manual for her son! Baseball dazzles us with its complexity and beauty but also for its ability to mirror so much of the human spirit. The ups and downs of the game along with its style and grace have forever been a source of inspiration to baseball fans and especially to the young people of this country. Gods, Gloves, Popups, and Ponies explores the effect baseball can have on the development of a young man’s path to manhood. It is first about how a young man discovers what it means to be awakened from the fog of his adolescent life in his life-changing summer chasing the Pony League title in 1975. It then brings the story to the present moment as we learn how baseball can help shape a young man’s character as the young boy is now a coach and we are taken through a season with the high school-baseball players he helps guide and direct. Through his many years allowing the game of baseball to mold and define his character the author brings to us a rare look at just how powerful the lessons found on the field can be to the creation of outstanding young men.

The Red Zinger Bicycle Classic, the Coors International Bicycle Classic, and now the USA Pro Cycling Challenge have defined Colorado as one of the most majestic venues for bicycle racing. From Western Colorado to the Front Range in Denver, Boulder, Golden, and Fort Collins, with all the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains in between, nowhere else in the United States will cyclists find such intense beauty and challenge.

Racing Altitude: The Birth of a Epic Bike Race is about the intensity and drama of racing in the Rockies. Born out of one photographer’s love of bike racing, it would take you to places on the race routes you may not have seen on TV or in other publications. You will also get up-close and personal to the riders and what they think about racing altitude in the Rockies. The USA Pro Challenge has become one of the most exciting races in the world to racers and spectators alike!

Racing Altitude is 90 pages of full color photos and quotes from mostly personal interviews the photographer had with the riders about the USA Pro Challenge bike race in the Colorado Rockies. It’s printed on high quality 80# Gloss Paper so each photo pops off the page. As one previewer said “It’s like you’re there, at the race”.
