I'm new to this forum or any other cycling forum but I've been riding competitively for the last 11 (since I was 13) years with 2008-2012 being a sort of break time determining if this was a sport I really wanted to continue doing.
Historically I am track sprinter (6'2 190lb) so big and fat when compared to a climber but raced road pretty regularly. In July I had a pretty bad training accident that left me hospitalized and with a destroyed bike and wondering if cycling is something I want to reunite with...and here I am.
At the moment I am riding a loaner from my team until the S-Works Venge I want comes in February, but my past notable rides are in pictures below. Needless to say, for my age I've had lots of sponsors in the past who were very generous to provide me with equipment to help me reach a decent level of competition. A coach of mine made me hate the bike, but thats no excuse for not performing given the things and chances I once had. However, all that negativity is behind me now and I'd like to think my love for riding is back more than ever so I look forward to adding to the conversation and taking away a few things from everyone.
