Musings and updates: The purpose of this blog is twofold; 1.) the hope is that this site will act as another motivating factor in assisting me in achieving success in the upcoming racing season, 2.) I would like to attempt to convey some of my thoughts about racing, various racing venues, and cycling in general.
