is a 25-year old amateur coming from Albequerque, New Mexico. He was at
the Cycling Center last year together with Pete Barlin and many others and he's
looking forward to another year in Belgium. In his last diary for 2002 he
takes a look back and says "I am walking out of this season fulfilled,
eager, and realistic." Let's hope this reflection will help him
through the 2003 season where we will see him do his best in order to fulfil his
dream. If you want to email him your encouragements, please do so at this address: email@example.com
The new year starts
Well, I'm taking the first official rest day of the year to write my first
diary. I've been living in Athens, GA for the last few weeks and hope to
continue being here for a while. Some people describe the town as the Boulder of
the South, I prefer to describe it as one of the best cycling places in the US.
Besides being the hometown of the B-52's, REM, and basically Widespead Panic, it
also has a great cycling history and fantastic roads. There is a winter ride
series here called the WBL, or Winter Bike League. There are cash sprints and
cash prizes to the winner every week! The rides turn out around 100 people
weekly, so it is good fun. Beyond that, I have been riding the singlespeed
mountain bike a bit and hanging out with Theresa.
I am just coming off a pretty big week on the bike, so I am fairly tired, but
the training is going great and I am confident that this year will be a totally
different game than last. Happy New Year all,
