    Introduction: Jimmy-Fred

    Hi everyone - long time no talk.

    I've been busy pursuing a long winding descent, down from my racing highs, to Fredberry, RFD. My cycling had been an issue in a troubled marriage, and when that combined with injuries and extreme demands at work, I chose to back-burner training ad racing until I can once again give it what it deserves. My riding has been extremely sporadic: I've reached the point now where I look behind me to see if anyone will be passing me on my pseudo-training rides. Hasn't happened yet, but... This 'devolution' has been so hard, emotionally, that I haven't been able to bring myself here to write about it.

    But now, here I am.

    I'm not going to try to catch up on threads - just going to pick back up from here, and use you all like domestiques to get me back up the fitness climb. First step is to get enough fitness to where I can actually train!

    So hi. My names is James, and I'm a Fred.

    Hi James. Welcome............................back.

    1. You're not a Fred. In fact, I believe the word is somewhat verboten now.

    2. If you're not having fun, then you're doing it wrong.

    3. That is all..............unless I forgot something.

    A warm welcome back. You've been missed. I'm sorry to hear life has gotten in the way, but....it can.

    And, everything Nacler said, all the bullet points.

    Missed you, Jim...

    Jed works for me.

    Oh, and I've been wanting to ask: How about our local boy Marcotte? Holds both the road race and the crit jersey right now! Well deserved. His real strength is to be able to go hard for hours, and then crank out some truly ridiculous power. 1,275 watts to get his gap, and still over 1,000 holding it to the line.
