I like pizza and ice cream...

Yep... I'm a newd guy.... whoops... new guy. Anyway, I'm a road cyclist currently racing in USCF cat 2 catagory. Looking forward to upgrading soon, or at least that's my intention.

Also, I'm a NORBA Expert moutain biker... anyone hiring?

I currently race for Broadmark Capital [http://www.broadmarkcycling.com], based in Seatte, WA. We are finally getting warmer weather up here... when I say warmer, I mean it's finally getting into the 70s.

I recently moved here from St Louis, so I'm much more used to the usual suffication and dehydration you feel about this time back in the Midwest.

I ride a 2002 Giant TCR built up with Dura Ace. Suits me rather well. I've been on Giants ever since I began racing road bikes four years ago... oh wait... I did have a short lived stint with a Cannondale R800 in my early road years.

As for the mountain bike... well I no longer have one, but in years past they've been whoever I could get sponsored by. I rode a Giant MCM which was my absolute favorite back in... um... er... '97(?) The year before that it was a Diamondback Vertex TA... yellow... pimp!

My focus has been the road only for the past two years, in which the ultimate goal is to become a catagory 1 and compete in Europe for a season.

That's enough about me... what 'bout you? eh?

It's nice to see someone else from Washington. Did your team race in Walla Walla this year?

Edit: Ah, I see that you did. I no longer race road and have focused on xc. That may change.

Yep... the rest of team was there, but I decided to sit that one out. We had a pretty good showing with six guys... two of which placed in the top 5 overall.

I raced there last year and truly enjoyed the race, as well as the town... although the weather could've been a tad bit more cooperative for the road race.

I bet that you have some really good trails for XC riding.

We have superb trails in the Blue Mountains. And yes, the weather can be crappy in the spring. The wind seems to blow all day, but it is great for training!
