Another year has rolled by. It’s hard to believe I’ve been writing UltraRob’s Adventures for over 3 years. Here are the top viewed blog posts during 2008.

10. Lance Armstrong Pre-Leadville 100 Videos

These are a couple videos of Lance Armstrong before the 2008 Leadville 100. See the #6 post for videos of the race.

9. RAAM Finisher Randy Van Zee Killed

This is such a sad story. Randy Van Zee was a huge inspiration when he finished RAAM in 2004 with a cracked pelvis.

8. Shaving Legs, Manitou Incline Directions And Food

This post also points to a few other posts but it has been popular with people looking for directions to the Manitou Incline.

7. 7 Mountain Biking Confidence Killers

I wrote this post after riding in Moab with a neglected bike. A poorly maintained bike along with other things will hurt your confidence on a mountain bike.

6. Dave Wiens and Lance Armstrong Leadville Videos

This post has several videos of Dave Wiens and Lance Armstrong battling it out at the 2008 Leadville 100. The training for the Leadville 100 started Lance on the path to his current pro road racing comeback.

5. Historic Dewey Bridge on Kokopelli Trail Burns

A boy playing with matches started a fire that destroyed the landmark bridge near Moab. I’ve driven by it many times on trips to Moab and rode across it when I did the Kokopelli Trail from Fruita to Moab. When I was to the 2008 24 Hours of Moab, I saw the little bit of it that remains.

4. How I Use Hammer Nutrition and E-CAPS Products

This post has been popular since I wrote it when I was training for the 2006 Race Across America. I still use the Hammer Nutrition products pretty much the same way. My nutrition during the 2006 RAAM was only slightly different.

3. Leadville 100 MTB FAQ

I started writing answers to questions about the Leadville 100 last year. I have some more answers partially written and need to get them finished and posted.

2. Wiens Wins #5 in Record Time, Landis 2nd

This post has photos I took of Dave Wiens and Floyd Landis during the 2007 Leadville 100. The post was popular when I first posted it in 2007 and it became popular again when it was announced that Lance was racing in 2008.

1. Top 5 Reasons Cyclists Shave Their Legs

The question I’m asked most about cycling is why do cyclists shave their legs. The 5 reasons I posted continue to be very popular.

4 of the 10 viewed posts last year were about the Leadville 100. Also popular were my Leadville 100 photos from 2006 and 2007. If I get picked in the Leadville 100 lottery, I should be back there racing for my 6th finish.

I did leave out one post in the top 10 that wasn’t outdoor or cycling related. A few years ago, I installed a remote starter in my wife’s mini-van.

  1. [...] Here are the top 10 most viewed posts on UltraRob’s Adventures in 2009. Actually I grouped the ones about the Leadville 100 or they would have dominated the top 10. Interestingly the #1 and #3 spots were the same as in 2008. [...]
