Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My Formal Introduction

Hello. My name is Jason. I am new here but I am definately not new to cycling. I'm a Cat 1 rider in California and my goal is to become pro. I ride often - hard, fast, aggressive, and most of all....RAW.

Why do I seem cocky? All the greats are. It comes from believing in yourself. Who do you want operating on you in a life/death situation? Someone who is unsure if they can do the job? Or someone that says let's do this?

Perhaps you may see me one day on OLN racing with greats...I think about this moment every day until it becomes reality. Nuclear weapons, F22 stealth fighters, Tomcat cruise missiles, ME... What do they all have in common? We're purpose built to do the job as efficiently as possible.

The taste of victory is sweet my friends. Unfortunately I have also tasted the bitter sweetness of defeat. Therefore I am incorporating power meter training and off season weight lifting to sharpen my blade. 2008 will be a slaughterfest.

If you have any questions I can answer feel free to drop me a PM or email.

-Jason

Well, uh, good luck with that.

You'll have absolutely no problem fitting in in this place. In fact, you're already way ahead of the game.

Good question. The answer: I have no plan B. I've backed myself into a corner and there's no where to go except right through the obstacles that confront me. The possibility of not achieving my goals is impossible to comprehend at the present moment...only motivational thoughts and images roam inside my mind. This is the level of commitment I will put into cycling in 2008....

So who do you ride for now? What races are you going to be awesome at in 2008? Do you race outside California (or the US)?

Sounds like you've set out some very ambitious goals for yourself. Best of luck to you in your pursuits. What's your full name so that we can follow your race results this upcoming season?
