Hello from Louisville!

Hi! I'm David Bunnell. I am 17 years old and I am a 100% newbie at everything cycling. It has been a tradition for me and my dad to go down and watch the IronMan Louisville finishes. Last year, I swore to myself that I would finish it at age eighteen, the minimum age. I am a competitive swimmer, so the swim should be no problem, but I have never done anything with bikes and am pretty inexperienced with running as well. So this year, I have been running 2-3 times per week and swimming 7-9 times per week. Just this morning I purchased my first bike. A 2004 Bianchi Eros. My dad has an old 1989 Bianchi Brava that he still rides sometimes today, and I've always thought it was the coolest thing, so I went out and found myself a Bianchi! I actually bought the bike off of eBay for a total of $425 and I believe I got a good deal. I'm excited to get into and learn more and more about this sport!

Cheers David, welcome!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
