    New guy!

    Hi all! Name's Dustin. Looonnggg story short. Weighed 325lbs. at 6'2, now I weigh 180 at 6'2 thanks to my bike and eating right! My bike saved my life! I'm a Cat 4 racer now, with aspirations to go 3 early next season. I live in Northeast GA. Any questions?

    Yeah, has anyone ever told you that's an awesome story? Welcome.

    Hello Dustin, perhaps you could share that story sometime in the Clydesdales/Athenas forum--that's a great story for motivation .

    Where do you do training/racing? Do you go outside Georgia for any races?

    Welcome to BF!

    Oh! That's great! Do you have publisher, etc., etc., lined up? Any idea when you'll be finished? You MUST keep us informed .

    lol...no publisher or anything...i'm only 23....basically the book tells about how i got to be so big, how i got picked on for being big, how i lost weight, and where i am as far as my "career" currently..i will only try and release the book if i go pro....might seem stupid, but i dunno...we'll see...if i had enough interest, i could work on it a lot and maybe go ahead and finish it...
