99 Days, not that I’m counting.

I’m 99 days post surgery.  And for anyone asking, no I’m not better, I’m not racing till April, and ish for being allowed to ride my bike. It’s hard because I look fine.  My scars are even disappearing.  But internally I have no idea if the magic tendon ferries are busy healing, or if they…

Default Status- Café Racer

I’m getting back into things.  After the crash just before ITS Melbourne, I went overseas, raced the Red Hook Crit in London, and crashed again.  It hurt.  Enough that I took myself off the bike…
