Hey, my name is John and I'm a junior road racer from the bay area. My ride is an '01 Specialized Allez Sport runnin shimano 105 and mid line rithchey compnents. Weighing in at 22-25 pounds I guess you could say I don't have "the most competitive" bike out there but it works. I love the hills where I ride, which is mostly in Woodside and Portola Valley. The weather is gorgeous and so is the scenery. I started racing at 12 and have done maybe 15 or so races, but this year I'm going full speed into the season and it is looking like it will be a great year. Greatest race I have done is Copperopolis, nicknamed "The Paris-Roubaix" of California. Now go RIDE!!!
