A reintroduction of sorts...

Hey everybody, how are you?

For those of you that don't know me I used to post on the forums quite a bit but got kind of burnt out on it. So after some time off, a horrible season and a couple bad injuries I am trying to make a new return. I've got some recovery time in front of me and I hope that the forums will supply me the motivation they once did so I can find myself back in the saddle sooner then expected.

I am from Flagstaff, Arizona.... and yes it snows here unfortunately. Right now I am a college student, but I am hoping that the end is near so I can move on with my life. I ride only road bikes, and have a new one sitting in the corner just dying to be ridden.

I hope all is well with my all my old friends, and I hope to soon meet many new friends. See ya on the forums.

Welcome back Ba-Dg-Er.

It's good to see an "old" familiar name.

Sorry you had a bad season.
I guess you mean racing, or was it just a bad riding season?

Got any new bikes that we haven't seen?

It was a bad riding season.... one crash while out training that ruined my bike and then last month, a stupid freak accident that ruined my knee.

I do have a new bike, a new Cannondale that I love... I will get some pictures and post them soon!

Glad to see around again Brandon. Hope your recovery went well.
Now for the big question; Where the hell is Big-Bird!

I go in for Surgery on Tuesday the 15th.... hopefully I can be back on the bike within 4 - 6 weeks and training hard for next season. I am sure it will be fine, and come back stronger then before.

Hey there, Badger. You get that knee back in shape and maybe you can hit RAGBRAI this year.
