Well, here it is!
For a while I’ve been considering putting a website together to provide a single location for results, photos, highlights and my race schedule. I made a post on Facebook to see if people would be interested, and I received lots of encouragement which convinced me to go for it. The undertaking was intimidating for me, so I held off for a while. Since I’m not riding right now and have had a few weeks of downtime, I figured I may as well get it going before I start racing again.
I’ll give you a bit of a simple update for what’s going on right now, and I’ll probably write a more detailed post explaining my situation later on.
I’m currently off the bike. Not training. Not racing. There’s no pressure for me to get back on the bike anytime soon, as I’m currently unfit for the pressures of training and racing. I dug a pretty deep hole over the past 7 months, and it will take a while to climb back out.
For 2017 I’ve committed to H&R Block Pro Cycling. Eventually I’ll be racing with them. For now I have the full support of my manager, Mark Ernsting, to take all the time I need to focus on my health. Having that support is huge, and the relief of the pressure to perform when I know I can’t will allow me to come back when I’m prepared.
I hope you enjoy my website! Feel free to comment, like, or share. Thanks for checking it out!
