hey all im ryan from minnesota. im a internationally ranked alpine ski racer. i spend my winters training in kirkwood nevada (by lake tahoe) and park city, utah. but i ride mostly in the midwest since i live in red wing, mn in the summer. i've been serisouly into mountain biking for the last 6 years but just bought a 2006 Cr1 pro road bike. I'll be doing most of my road riding around the twin cities and red wing, where i live. so nice to meet you all and i look forward to learning much from this forum!
