Spring rides and races

It's not even April, and I've been riding outside in Montana for about two months now. Even a lot of the mountain bike trails are clear. The only downside is that I didn't ski very much this year. So yeah, first real outdoor ride of the year? Jan 27th. Last year I didn't get out until Mar 12th. I've been getting my ass kicked on the weekend rides by guys like Toby, Elliot, Stinky, Josh and Sam, I've already lost a few pounds of "winter weight," and am starting to feel a little quick, which is good because I have two races coming up.

Hello new bike season

Race season is about to start here in Montana so I figured I might as well write some stuff on here. I have mixed feelings about 2014, mostly because I feel like I could have done better. For my second season of racing I guess it wasn't bad though.

I got in a full season of racing across three disciplines, won two, had a 2nd place, and finished the butte 100 mountain bike race. I upgraded my race licenses across the board, got cool new bike (which I took racing the next day) and did more miles and elevation compared to the year before. I also got to travel more and rode in new places.
