I've come to believe that bike racers are the most optimistic group of humans on the planet. Year after year, set back after set back, we start the new racing season with hope and optimism. For me this is especially true as I suffer from a chronic illness that has at times kept me off the bike for the better part of a year. I'm entering my 5 year of bike racing in 2013 and it's a make or break year for me. I've had amazing form in 2011 and 2012 only to have illness rob me of any chance of a result. Although I enjoy bike racing a lot I really need to win a race, I've been close, lots of podiums and many many more top 5's but I have yet to raise my arms and post up. So as we enter the new year I now present to you my 2013 racing goal(s).
