Thank You

I guess if you are taking the time to read these words, then you are officially open and interested in what I have to say.... Oh boy, here we go! What strikes me so much about the whole "blog" culture is that you can get to know someone's dreams, aspirations, up and downs, pretty much their whole lifestyle.... without ever meeting them (I find that intriguing). For those of you that read my site and don't "know" me I hope you can get an honest feel for who I am and want to become... For those of you that "know" me and read the site, I hope it offers you some inside line on better understanding my lifestyle and where I am going.

When I first started this site I was only trying to find a channel for my nervous energy, the day before my first World Cup Race in Angel Fire New Mexico. Since then I have stumbled my way through my rookie season on the pro circuit and I am still here to write about it.

As the site develops and the story unfolds, I hope that it can offer another perspective into the very physically and emotionally demanding sport of cycling. Thank you for log'n and listening to what I have to say... Looking forward to 'O6 - Best of Rides, Martini.

Shut up and post more cool pics!
J/K Enjoy reading your post. Most people like myself probably use it as motivation.

Keep up the good work, and maybe lose the music.

I love keeping up on all the blogs. especially yours! I especially like being on the inside and knowing everyone. It keeps me up to date with everyone outside our little detached world of Durango. You know what that's like. Best of rides, I'm sure I'll see you soon now that the season is bearing down on us like a fat kid on a cupcake!

Hey Nick keep it up, good stuff.
Yep, bike blogs are a sure way to waste a few minutes of the day. My wife calls them "reality t.v. for bike geeks."

you are the coolest cyber rasta metrosexual cyclist I know. Music could be a little harder, this tune isn't motivating me to do anything but think about clouds and flowers a crap. And punch Ranno hard on the arm every time anyone on this blog asks you to...let's see how many times we can get to. I have to go do something now....peace.

Crazy how the blog unites us all, even when we move away.

I'm a fan of The Real, that's how I found your site, Nick, but I've always been a fan of the Trek boys--all the way back to the Rocket Boys. Good luck and thanks for letting us play along at home.
