    Bitten again

    Oh boy I got the bug all over again. Well maybe I had the biking sickness all along and it was just in remission. My story is a few injuries and time in PT so I got out of the downhill madness which led to less of the trail riding. What was I thinking?! I sold my long travel bikes, got back into drag bike racing, gained some weight and told myself I was still a mountian biker. Well I won the track championship at Firebird raceway which was great but racing my drag bike didn't fill the void of ripping down the trail on the ragged edge of control. I have been back on the bike almost daily for three weeks and feel I am riding better than ever. Must be mountianbikeitous. Slow but Sure is back and I set a goal of 12 more pounds of weight loss then I might just replace the Stumpjumper with some new medicine. Who knows I might perscribe myself a new Pivot Firebird to cure the bug. See ya out there on the trail and shuttles.

    Welcome back. I got back in mtn bike after a long break when I did alot road course car racing. Fun, expensive and got tired of always having to wrench on the car to keep it in perfect condition and the racing took alot of time away from the family.

    So I dusted off the mtn bike and have been riding it quite a bit. It has been fun and perfect for my time limitations. Sure it can't match the thrill of car racing, but it is really intended to.
