It has been awhile since you and I have been able to take time out of your work day and waste time on the crap I may write. It is not that I have layed down and let the world get me, more like I have too busy having fun with the family, Proto, making selfies on facebook, and future plans.
Last things first. The last several years I have come to realize that my fat bike and winter races garner most of my excitement. This year I have been all fatbike. The biggest goal for the coming winter is getting into the ITI, Iditarod Trail Invitational.
Well, I am in. That is about the biggest cycling news I got. This winter I'll be starting an endeavor that hopefully end 350 miles later in the heart of Alaska. Lots of things to stress about with this race, lots.
I am riding Proto and having fun all the way. You can go buy Proto's offspring now. 9zero7 with a 190mm rear is hot stuff. I patiently wait for Proto's replacement as every needs a healthy dose of fiber!
I was raised in the "hood", self-taught to survive on scraps of old inner tubes and changing bike tires with my teeth. Life is a struggle for me not to be another statistic that so many become after being raised in a caucasion middle class family. I now am a husband, bike mechanic, land lord, stay at home dad, and wannabe mountain bike racer.
